Never Grow Up

Carter, I always hope that you keep the passion to play without worry, to run through your day only concerned about when you can have your next Popsicle, that your imagination continues to grow as big as my aspirations for you, that you continue to love whole heartedly, that your sense of style always remains uniquely your own, that you are never too big to want to "nuggle" with your momma and that you never grow up too fast!




I heard this song yesterday while you were in preschool and I must have listened to it 100 times...love love love it almost, not really, as much as I love you!


Your little hand wrapped around my finger


and it is so quite 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, everythings 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


~ Taylor Swift

I also wish the same for you Carter! I love seeing the world through your eyes. I love when you turn my couch into a fort for you and nutzy, and we go hunting in the backyard for bears,panthers and any other animal you can think of.
