Travel back in time for a bit:

Ready, Set, Don’t Go (with video)

Anyone who’s a parent will understand the meaning of this song, and why I’m absolutely in love with it!!!

Ready, Set, Don’t Go
Billy Ray Cyrus

She’s gotta do what she’s gotta do
And I’ve gotta like it or not
She’s got dreams too big for this town
And she needs to give ’em a shot
Whatever they are.

Looks like she’s all ready to leave
Nothing left to pack
There ain’t no room for me in that car
Even if she asked me to tag along
God I gotta be strong.

Chorus:
She’s at the startin’ line of the rest of her life
As ready as she’s ever been
Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes
The prize is hers to win
She’s waitin’ on my blessings before she hits that open road
Baby get ready, get set, don’t go.

She says things are fallen into place
Feels like they’re fallen apart
I painted this big ol’ smile on my face
To hide my broken heart
If only she knew
This is where I don’t say what I want so bad to say
This is where I want to but I won’t get in the way
Of her and her dreams
And spreadin’ her wings.

She’s at the startin’ line of the rest of her life
As ready as she’s ever been
Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes
The prize is hers to win
She’s waitin’ on my blessings before she hits that open road
Baby, get ready, get set, don’t go.

She’s at the startin’ line of the rest of her life
As ready as she’s ever been
Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes
The prize is hers to win
She’s waitin’ on my blessings before she hits that open road
Baby, get ready, get set
Please don’t go.

Don’t go
Don’t go
She’s gotta do what she’s gotta do
She’s gotta do what she’s gotta do…

The Disney Channel Video:

God, I’m so pathetic. I tear-up every time I see the damn video or hear the song, :loser:.

Things Little Ones Pick Up

I just listened to “I’ve Been Watching You” by Rodney Atkins. It really makes you think about what little ones pick up from you, as the parents, and as society.

Kids nowadays are growing up so fast. I mean, shoot, look at me. I’m almost 26 (Dec), and I just started dying my hair, I have no tattoos, and no funky piercings. Now, my sister will be 18 in September. She’s already got a belly button piercing, and last I heard, plans for a tat. O.o

It’s not always a bad thing though. The more they pick up, the more they learn. The more they learn, the stronger they’ll be.

Remember, folks, more than just society is watching. Little ones pick up on everything, and I mean everything. Madi cussed for the first time at 9 months. Every once in awhile, both of them will go “Oh shit” when something happens, XD. They pick up things, FAST!!

And for those non-country fans, here’s the video. Then, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

Song of the Day

This one’s for the dads out there, XD, and for Mommy’s, too.

I’ve Been Watchin’ You by Rodney Atkins

Driving through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
Knowing that he couldn’t have the toy
Till his nuggets were gone
Green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit my breaks and mumbled under my breath
His fries went a flying and his orange drink covered his lap
Well then my four year old said a four letter word
That started with “s” and I was concerned
So I said son now now where did you learn to talk like that

[Chorus one]

He said I’ve been watching you dad, ain’t that cool
I’m your buckaroo, I wanna be like you
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
Yeah we’re just alike, hey ain’t we dad
I wanna do everything you do
So I’ve been watching you

Song of the Day

Today’s song is God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood.

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,

From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, there’s pride in every American heart,
and it’s time to stand and say:

I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
