Just a glimpse...

...into this hormonal girl right now.

Lew and I were in the car last night eating some Rita's and the song "It won't be like this for long" by Darius Rucker came on...and I burst into tears. I mean it wasn't just a tear here or there, it was like full on tears. Yeah I'm not a big crier, but I think I have a cried at least once a day for the past week. Sometimes it just catches me by surprise. Thankfully usually the tears are followed by bursts of laughter. That seems to be the way these hormones work. Tears than unstoppable laughter. It's actually rather enjoyable. At least it gives Lew a good laugh.

Anyways here are the lyrics to the song. I mean seriously can you blame me for crying? :) (I also added the song to my playlist)

He didnt have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be ok
It wont be like this for long

One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long

Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in there bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can i do
She says now dont you worry
This will only last a week or two

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long

One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the isle
And he'll raise her vale
But right now she up and cry'n
And the truth is that he dont mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows
It wont be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
He's try'n to hold on
It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long

And just because I can't help myself here is the music video which, yes, made me cry as well. (You will have to pause the music at the bottom for the video). If things keep going at this rate we are in for a really fun few weeks :)
