This week’s SPF from RandomandOdd is: (SELF or SOMEONE) YOU IN MUSIC

Last year our youngest child turned 16. Daddy was very emotional. During her party (in the barn~ok I miss it) Tim McGraw’s My Little Girl came on and they danced. There wasn’t a dry eye in house and I am surprised I managed to get this picture (this was before the arrival of my cool, new camera thus poor quality).


Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you, though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You’ve had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.
Your beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that’ll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you’ll always be, my little girl.
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I’ve turned around and you’ve almost grown.
Sometimes you’re asleep I whisper “I Love You!” in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, “Daddy Love You More!”.
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won’t say “yes” to him unless I know, he’s the half that makes you whole, he has a poet’s soul, and the heart of a man’s man.
I know he’ll say that he’s in love.
But between you and me. He won’t be good enough!

~Tim McGraw

A Fishy Excuse


  1. That picture is so sweet! The lyrics to the song made me all misty eyed thinking about my baby girl, she’s 14 and growing up so fast.

  2. aaaaaawwwwwww….

  3. Awwwwwwwwww! Makes me wanna go hug my Daddy!

  4. Well there is the father/daughter song for her wedding right there. How sweet. Something she will always remember.

  5. oh yeah i’d be a mess too. My husband always tells my 10-year-old no matter what, no one will be good enough so the earlier you realize it the better!

    (I agree though!)

    Happy SPF!

  6. That is a sweet song – and what an incredible moment to have captured!

    Happy Rockin’ Friday!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. That is so incredibly sweet. What lucky kids you have.

  8. Uzz

    Excellent moment in time photo!! When I shoot weddings ( which I hate to shoot) I am always looking for these shots as they are the ones we truly wish to remember:-)

    I played!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Aww, I remember that. That song always makes me cry. I love my daddy, too!

  10. Aww…I get to see my Daddy for the first time in 8 months tomorrow. I can’t wait! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I’m sorry I’m so late to post a comment about SPF! I feel so far behind this weekend.

    That is a really sweet picture and story ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s a great song! I always feel a little bummed though because there are so many father/daughter songs, I want to find a mother/son song! It seems like there is something really sweet about a father/daughter relationship, but mother/son relationships come across and wussy.

  12. Awww how sweet.

    Thanks for your comment.

  13. This is definitely heart-warming. So far I only have a boy so I won’t have to go through this yet. I think of John Lennon’s song Beautiful Boy though.

  14. Aaaaaaaaaw how nice

  15. I think the lyrics are very cool especially

    “Chase your Dreams but always know the road thatโ€™ll lead you home again. “

    hi is so sweet
