This song is so beautiful… I just discovered its lyrics and they made me cry like a baby. Matty turned four months old on Monday, and I just don’t want him to grow up. I wish he could stay this little forever, so I could protect him from the hurts of the world. There is so much I have experienced in life that I never want him to go through. I would do anything to keep his heart from breaking.  I just want to spare him any pain. I am not the teeny bopper type… Not a fan of Justin Bieber, the Jonas Brothers, Miley… ugh. I am reluctant to post this video (or lack of a video) because of the cheesiness of Taylor Swifts photo just staring back at me. But the lyrics have won the battle. My heart in a song:


Your little hands wrapped around my finger
And it’s so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming
So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light
To you everything’s funny, you got nothing to regret
I’d give all I have, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
I won’t let nobody hurt you, won’t let no one break your heart
And no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, never grow up

You’re in the car on the way to the movies
And you’re mortified your mom’s dropping you off
At 14 there’s just so much you can’t do
And you can’t wait to move out someday and call your own shots
But don’t make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she’s getting older too
And don’t lose the way that you dance around in your pj’s getting ready for school

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
No one’s ever burned you, nothing’s ever left you scarred
And even though you want to, just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother’s favorite songs
I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It’s so much colder that I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I’d never grown up
I wish I’d never grown up

Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up
I could still be little
Oh I don’t wanna grow up, wish I’d never grown up
It could still be simple
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little
Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up
Don’t you ever grow up, it could stay this simple
Won’t let nobody hurt you
Won’t let no one break your heart
And even though you want to, please try to never grow up
Oh, don’t you ever grow up
Oh, never grow up, just never grow up

Who doesn’t love this?

Hi, All. Or the few who might actually read this blog since I haven’t really told anyone about it. I’m actually pretty shy about this whole blogging ordeal. But I love reading blogs, and I’m actually quite getting a kick out of blogging, myself. This is the third time I try it, and hopefully I’ll stick around this time. Anyway, you know the saying “Money doesn’t grow on trees?” I wish it did. (Don’t we all?) As you know, we’ve been living with my in laws and it’s getting a little… well, crowded. I guess it’s been that way since the beginning, but since Matty was born, we’ve REALLY noticed a change. I’m surprised there aren’t burp cloths hanging from the ceiling fan. I’m not complaining, although it sounds as if I am. I’m very grateful that we even have this opportunity of living here and it has been AMAZING having all the help with Matthew. It’s just… we want our own space so bad. I can’t wait to decorate it and make it ours. I know the day is coming. Although my wish is to be a WAHM, right now I need a fixed income. We have credit cards to pay, and student loans, and we need a place ASAP. But I will definitely continue with my business ideas and I know one will stick!

Last night at church was amazing. We attend a young adult service called The Outlet on Wednesday nights and it is a tremendous blessing to both of our lives. Without God in the center of our lives and marriage, things would be so much harder. The message was totally for me… “Don’t quit on your dream job, don’t quit on school… keep pushing forward and you will make it… you’re almost there.” Haleluyer! Just what I needed to push another day. Today’s tune was one of the worship songs played yesterday. It’s called Healer. Although you may not be physically sick, God is not only our Healer of sicknesses, He will heal your insides, too. That’s what He did for me. And man, am I glad He did.

Hi! I’m still working on posting every day. Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday. Our birthdays are a week apart, so most of the time, we celebrate together. This past weekend we went on a little birthday road trip to Orlando. We visited Islands of Adventure and had a great time. Rollercoasters, good food and all around a great time with friends. Matty stayed behind. It was fun to have a little adult time, but man did I miss that little guy.

Moving on, today is Thursday and I would like to share a song that means something to me. Not necassarily the hippest song, or something on the top 20 charts. It could be the dorkiest most ridiculous song, and it probably is…but it means something to me. This week’s Thursday tune is anything but ridiculous though, because it’s from Dave Matthews Band, and we all know that they are the epitome of badassery. Being that this is my husband’s birthday week, I’d like to share our song. Not the song we danced at our wedding, but our song nonetheless. My husband got me up from the hospital bed while I was recovering from my C-section to slow dance this song with me the day after Matthew was born. It was the most romantic moment of my life. Babe, this is for you.

I ended up having a FABULOUS birthday with my hubby. He surprised me and took me to Cinebistro with all of our close friends. For those of you who don’t know, Cinebistro is a movie theater where you can have dinner while you watch your movie! Best of all, it’s 21 and over so you don’t have to deal with annoying youngins talking too loud or ruining your experience. We saw the Social Network, which was awesome. Would recommend it to anyone! I ordered the Fettuccine  which was oh, so delicious! Anyway, I had a great time 🙂

So I decided to post a song which means something to me once a week because it’s my blog and I can do whatever I want! I have a secret obsession with the old Mariah Carey. You know, pre-mid life crisis Mariah. Once in a while, she still does surprise me with an amazing song. Despite her life choices, she has a BEAUTIFUL voice and I consider her a full blown diva. Don’t judge me! This song is actually not so old, from her Rainbow Album. She calls it Mariah’s theme and the lyrics speak directly to my heart. Enjoy!

They can say
anything they want to say
try to bring me down
But I will not allow
anyone to succeed
hanging clouds over me
And they can try
Hard to make me feel that I
Don’t matter at all
But I refuse to falter in what I believe
or lose faith in my dreams

Cause there’s
There’s a light in me
That shines brightly.
They can try,
but they can’t take that away from me.

Oh, they
They can do, anything they want, to you.
If you let them in.
But they won’t ever win,
if you cling to your pride and just push them aside.
See I, I have learned
There’s an inner peace I own.
Something in my soul,
that they cannot possess.
So I won’t be afraid,
and the darkness will fade.

Cause there’s,
there’s a light in me.
That shines, brightly. yes
They can try, but they can’t take that away from me.

No, they can’t take this,
precious love I’ll always have inside me.
Certainly the Lord will guide me,
where I need to go.

Oh, oh, they can say.
Anything they want to say.
Try to bring me down.
But I won’t face the ground,
I will rise steadily,
sailing out of their reach.
Oh lord, they do try.
Hard to make me feel, that I.
Don’t matter at all.
But I refuse to falter,
in what I believe or loose faith in my dreams.
Cause there’s, there’s a light in me.
That shines, brightly…..yes

They can try, but they can’t take that away from me.
