Like a lot of people, I listen to music when I run. Unlike a lot of people, my playlist of choice on Pandora lately has been Disney. Random I know, but there is something about Disney tunes that make sweating your brains out a little bit more enjoyable. I like to zone out when listening to music and let songs kind of lead my thoughts. A few months ago, shortly after I was cleared to start exercising again after having Croix, I heard a song that I thought described mine and Brent's journey of parenthood perfectly.
Disney + parenthood = weird I know, but honestly every single time I've heard this song I think the same thing. So, today in honor of Croix turning 6 months old yesterday I thought I would share what runs through my mind as I literally run and listen to this song.
Beauty & The Beast.
Tale as old as time
True as it can be
|Croix, minutes old....|
Barely even friends

Just a little change

Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast
Ever just the same
|First Mexican food meal as a family of three. Croix was 5 days old and slept through the whole dinner.|
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
|Croix snoozing in front of my Kitchen Design.|
Ever just as sure
|Croix's first time in a pool!|
As the sun will rise
|Croix.....5 months and 30 days old.|
It's hard to believe we have known this little person for 6 whole months. Before Croix, I would hear this song and think....love song. Now, when I hear this song, I still think love song, just a whole different kind of love song. Happy Half Birthday Croix!
