The Addy song.

The first time I heard the song "The Best Day" by Taylor Swift, I cried. 

This may not come as a shock to anyone that knows me in real life. Since having my babies I now cry over most things and if they have anything to do with kids, the tears come even quicker. I have probably cried looking at your photos or reading a post about your kids. lol. Seriously though. And when kids sing...oh might as well bring me a whole dang box of tissues. I blame my wonderful mom for passing that on to me. ☺

So, the day I heard that song {after getting control of my fountain of tears}, I told Addy that was her song. It has stuck. Now whenever Addy asks for "the Addy song," she means this song. She actually knows all the lyrics at a little over 3 years old. It's crazy! I love hearing her little voice sing the words... I will have to video it sometime. We listen to it on every car ride at her request. I love it.

So here are the lyrics and our trip with daddy to Bates Nut Farm. ♥

"The Best Day"

I'm five years old
It's getting cold
I've got my big coat on

I hear your laugh
And look up smiling at you
I run and run

Past the pumpkin patch
And the tractor rides
Look now -- the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep
On the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day
With you today

I'm thirteen now
And don't know how my friends
Could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive
Until we've found a town
Far enough away

And we talk and window-shop
Until I've forgotten all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to
Now at school
I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day
With you today

I have an excellent father
His strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out
He's better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house
And I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video
I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen
And you're talking to me

It's the age of princesses and pirate ships
And the seven dwarfs
Daddy's smart
And you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world
 Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side
Even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine

And I didn't know if you knew
So I'm taking this chance to say
That I had the best day
With you today 

Linking up here!


  1. I have songs for everyone in our family and best friends/or friends walking through a trial, and when their song comes on, I pray for that person while I sing the song.

    Love the lyrics of this song. It makes me think of my little sisters, I don't have a little girl, but I had my baby sisters.

  2. We love Bate's. You and your daughter look adorable with your headbands! I'm glad you had a fun family day.

  3. What a beautiful song. I dont think I have heard it, but the words are so beautiful.

    You have such a beautiful family, and you are gorgeous, my friend!

    God bless!


I'm blessed by your sweet words!

They inspire and encourage me to keep sharing my story...

Thank you.
