Don’t Blink

The title to my blog today comes from Kenny Chesney’s song “Don’t Blink.” Such great words for this current season: 

I turned on the evening news

Saw a old man being interviewed

Turning a hundred and two today

Asked him what’s the secret to life

He looked up from his old pipe

Laughed and said “All I can say is.”

Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you

Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife

Don’t blink

You just might miss your babies growing like mine did

Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your better half

Of fifty years is there in bed

And you’re praying God takes you instead

Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think

So don’t blink

I was glued to my TV and it looked like he looked at me and said
“Best start putting first things first.”

Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand

You can’t flip over and start again

Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth

I’ve been tryna slow it down
I’ve been tryna take it in

In this here today gone tomorrow world we’re livin’ in

Now, don’t blink

I cannot believe my baby is 4 months old today!! Time is flying by way to fast for this tired mama. He’s getting 2 teeth, rolling over, learning to pull himself up and sit up, and he’s just a happy little guy! He loves to laugh, he loves the pool, and he’s one determined little boy. I’m going to have my hands full! He’s still getting up about every 3 hours at night and that’s hard. I look forward to us netting less throughout the night haha I did find a great article tonight on teething that really educated me. Hope it helps other mamas out there too! Here’s the link:

This mamas off to bed! 😴💤
