Heart Strings and Becoming a Father

There is no prescription for preparing to be a dad but some songs pull at the heart strings. Seeing as I am a huge Ben Folds fan, "Gracie" is such a warm song that gets me so excited. I cannot wait to be a father to my daughter. With that, I will leave you with the lyrics.

"You can't fool me, I saw you when you came out

You got your momma's taste but you got my mouth

And you will always have a part of me

Nobody else is ever going to see

Gracie girl

With your cards to your chest walking on your toes

What you got in the box only Gracie knows

And I would never try to make you be

Anything you didn't really want to be

Gracie girl

Life flies by in seconds

You're not a baby Gracie, you're my friend

You'll be a lady soon but until then

You gotta do what I say

You nodded off in my arms watching TV

I won't move you an inch even thought my arm's asleep

One day you're gonna want to go

I hope we taught you everything you need to know

Gracie girl

And there will always be a part of me

Nobody else is ever gonna see but you and me

My little girl

My Gracie girl"
