If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is save everyday
Watching you play
Smiling and laughing with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd make you a princess in purple and pink
And spend all my days twirling with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things I want to do
Laundry, dishes and life get in the way
And I've been a mom long enough to know
That time goes too fast and you just continue to grow

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that were all brand new
It would be full of bubbles, sparkles and wonder
And all the amazing things I know you will do

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the thing we want to do
Snuggles, fairy tales and your worlds of pretend
I am so thankful you are mine
And everyday day fall even more in love with you....

That was beautiful, Jessica.

(And the perfect piece to read as I hear my girls rumbling around in their room, ready to burst through for the day...)

Beautiful beyond words. Huge lump in my throat; you are an amazing mom. Addie is one lucky little girl. Love you, Jessica
