A word & a song

I have certain adjectives and songs that float through my mind as I go about my interactions with each family member during the day.  They change depending on stages and phases but I thought I'd write down the current ones....

Sadie in a word: SPECIAL.  She's so unique and has a little extra something special, I think. 

My theme song for Sadie lately is "You're One In A Million" from Miss Congeniality.  I love the peppiness of this song and dancability - very Sadie like.  It also talks about being an answer to a prayer and with a smile my heart was gone.  Perfect for Sadie!


Jax in a word: PERFECT! He can be difficult at times, but overall, for a little boy he is so great. Just the personality we needed in his position!  He's my perfect little boy.

Jax's theme song is "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story. Especially appropriate that is says, "miles and miles from your nice warm bed".  

When the road looks rough ahead 
And you're miles and miles
From your nice warm bed 
Just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me 
You've got troubles, well I've got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you 
We stick together and we see it through
You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me 

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
It's me and you
And as the years go by
Boys, our friendship will never die
You're gonna see
It's our destiny
You've got a friend in me 


When I'm holding McKay the words that run through my mind over and over again are simply, THANK YOU!

And the song playing in mind as I hold him is "So This Is Love" from Cinderella.  I really am over the top in love with little McKay. It's almost painful at times.

So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch ev'ry star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
So this is love


Then there's Ben.  Ah *sigh of relief*......Ben.  When I think of Ben I think HAPPINESS.

My theme song lately for us - "I'm In Love With My Best Friend" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. I think it's the separation factor I'm especially drawn to in this song. And quite literally he's dressed up in his work clothes while the kids and I play in bathing suits at the beach or pool so this song is very appropriate for us.  He also makes it easier when life gets hard :)
