When I watched my little girl singing Monday night in her choir performance there were tears in my eyes.  Yep, I am now one of those sappy 41 year old moms now.  I am proud to stand up and admit that (plus I have to own it because Joey called me out on it)….what a sap I am! 

Monday night I had the sheer pleasure of seeing my daughter sing and it was music to my ears……

I now get why my parents dragged themselves to all those band concerts of mine!  Pay back time……


I was proud to sit there, be in the moment and watch my girl singing her heart out….


If I do not take advantage of these moments they will all too soon be gone………and I am proud to say that her brothers feel the same way.  I caught Tyler in this candid moment proudly "watching" his sister….

I think he truly gets how fleeting these moments are and I so appreciate him being there to support her.  I know she does too. (don't worry, I painted eye balls on his lids and she never suspected).

Oh how I love this crazy little job they call "Mom"………..may they all put me in the nicest home available :)  and may the sound of my daughter's voice be what continually plays in my head.


"My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small, You never need to carry more than you can hold, And while you're out there getting where you're getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too" ~Rascal Flatts
