Have you heard the song by Taylor Swift called "Best Day"? I swear, that stinkin' song makes me cry every time I hear it. I try to brace myself and it still hits me outta no where and I end up bawling.
It's a song that Taylor wrote to her mama about growing up and how much she appreciates everything that she did for her.
My favorite verse is the last one where she is talking about painting in the kitchen as a little girl.
We were rocking out to Taylor last Thursday. Patrick was banging on tupperware in his high chair and Maggie was planting some tomatoes in honor of Earth Day. She came up with a "gweat idea" that involved lots of scotch tape.
At the same time that she was doing this, the "Best Day" song came on. I grabbed my camera and recorded her singing along and crafting. You can kind of hear the music in the background. I love that she didn't even know that I was recording her.
There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world
