Please Don't Take The Girl - 4Ms #Music

I've been in love with this song since I was a child. It has not lost it's value.  Oh to have a love like that :)

Which reminds me of something my daughter said the other day.

Daughter to son: Why do I have to always be walking around the house looking for a chair at dinner time!! Ugh
Son: I don't know. I didn't move your chair.

Me thinking: Chances are she moved the chair as she always does when she holds her impromptu classrooms around the house.

Daughter to son: Come on D, where is my chair! Why you move it!?
Son: I did not move your chair.

She stomped off to go find a chair. Came back and kept going.

Daughter to son: You did move my chair! I bet you are going to do this to your wife when you grow up! Or your girlfriend!

Son: I will not! Ew!

Me: Shaking my head, hiding giggles.

I do not get the thoughts of my six year old daughter. She is a one girl machine alright.

Come dance along with us and share some fun things your children say. Our theme this week is love songs (nice or brokenhearted)... in honor of Valentines Day!

  1. Kids are so funny. Did your daughter find her chair? Our three were always hiding stuff from the other. It got kinda crazy at times. Lovely song. Great fun to dance with you this morning!

  11. Gees, that song made my eyes burn. Such a sweet love song. It would be cute to watch a brother and sister that close in age behave. The kids in my daughter's school already start having boys only party.

  13. I've loved that song since it first came out, too.....it's such a tear-jerker. I think we ALL want (and deserve) love like that. What I have learned from the past few years and my divorce is that if I can't find what I'm looking for, I won't force myself to accept less than I deserve. It was a hard lesson to learn, but I hope it sunk in.

    Hope you are doing well, Callie!
