It Won't Be Like This For Long

As I was driving with the girls today at 4:30 p.m. to Target (that's like asking for a tantrum) I heard this song on the radio. It was exactly what I needed to hear. I've been a little short tempered lately at things Macy has been doing and this song put it all into perspective. Macy and Anna will grow up all too quickly and I'll be missing my babies. As I listened to this song I looked back at the girls and started crying. It hit me hard how they won't be like this for much longer and I need to soak in and appreciate every minute. Macy was wearing flower sunglasses upside-down, holding her pink sequence purse, and wearing purple gloves. Anna looked back at me and gave me a huge smile. I love both of them in their stages right now and wish they can be like this forever.

Tonight Macy told me that she can't go to sleep without Anna in the room with her. How sweet is that?! We've been putting them to bed together and it's been working well for the past week. How could I ever complain about having to lie in bed with Macy? It was only a phase and now that it's over I miss it. Anna loves to climb into bed with Macy now while we read bed time stories. There is nothing more perfect and lovely. I love seeing them cuddled up together. It melts my heart. Here's to our babies never growing up...

                               "It Won't Be Like This For Long"- by Darius Rucker

He didnt have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long

Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now dont you worry
This will only last a week or two

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long

One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the isle
And he'll raise her veil

But right now she up and cry'n
And the truth is that he dont mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows
It wont be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
He's try'n to hold on
It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long
