I'm wondering if I'm the only one who has a song that is set aside in your heart specifically for your little one. Surely I'm not.
This one is for Anthony. I know Lynard Skynard is the original artist on the song, but I like the Shinedown version much better as it's a little more mellow. If I could sing, I would sing this to my little man every night. Shinedown, "Simple Man"
If you know me, even in the slightest, you'd know I am a huge Jack Johnson fan. So having this song be Molly's was perfect. It makes me cry. Jack Johnson, "My Little girl"
Few people knew it, but I had been struggling for close to a year and a half with deciding whether a third child was in our future. I can't even begin to tell you how it feels to have a battle between your heart and your head over something that defines who I am. My mind was telling me two was good, two made my beautiful family complete and I should be content with that. But my heart screamed for a third. After going back and forth for so long, the time to make a decision was fast approaching as I had my own ideas on how far apart in age I would allow my children to be. In August, after hearing this song, it's like this wave washed over me and I knew right then and there I would never forgive myself if we didn't at least try for a third. And, well, you know I now have a sweet baby on the way. :) My baby has a song even before he/she enters this world. Jason Mraz, "I'm Yours"
I also have a song that encompasses all three of my children and the feeling of being their Mama. You might recognize it from one of the Subaru commercials. Some people think he's singing about drugs and being high, but everyone interprets things differently. To me, it describes PERFECTLY the high I feel when I find out I'm pregnant and the love I have for my children. Sean Hayes, "Powerful Stuff"
Maybe they'll change in time. Who knows. But as for now I love these songs and they remind me of my kiddos when I hear them.
With love,Mama Hauck
