feeing a little melancholy- That's what Saturday's are for

Weekends usually are the reward for making it through the week.  I usually get up earlier and stay up later to make use of every minute.  But I am also drawn to a little melancholy for my family.  So first and foremost... an update on 9month Carson, our cute grandbaby, although he is growing up so fast.... and yes I feel like I'm missing out.
I've been listening to Taylor Swifts new album, and I love this song:




(Taylor hasn't "shot" a video yet so this is just the words). 
My little girls are all grown up.
And now I'm trying to figure out my job.

yep that's what Saturday's are for!!!

You're little hands wrapped around my finger
And, it's so quiet in the world tonight
You're little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming
So, I tuck you in
Turn on your favorite night light
To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I had, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
It can stay this simple

I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart

And no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, and never grow up

You're in the car on the way to the movies

And, you're mortified
You're mom's dropping you off
At, fourteen there's just so much you can't do
And you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots
But, don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your PJ's getting ready for school

Oh, darling don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
It can stay this simple

And no one's ever burned you

Nothing's ever left you scarred
And even though you want to
Just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room

Memorize what it sounded like when your dad get's home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all you're little brothers favorite songs
I just realized everything I had is someday gonna be gone

So, here I am in my new apartment

In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
So, I tucked myself in and turned my night light on
Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up

Oh, I don't wanna grow up

Wish I'd never grown up
Could still be little
Oh, I don't wanna grow up
Wish I'd never grown up
It could still be simple

Oh, darling don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
It can stay this simple

Won't let nobody hurt you

Won't let no one break your heart
And even you want to
Please, try to never grow up

Oh, whoa

Don't you ever grow up
Oh, whoa
Never grow up
Just never grow up
