There's a song by the Dixie Chicks that I love. A song that I like to listen to over and over again. I like to sing it to my babies while dancing. A song that describes why I want to be an attached parent. The words speak to me and bring a calmness to my soul. The words remind me to take life slowly.

Life began when I saw your face.
How long do you want to be loved? Is forever enough?
I slip in bed when you're asleep
To hold you close and feel your breath on me
Tomorrow there'll be so much to do
So tonight I'll drift in a dream with you
As you wander through this troubled world
In search of all things beautiful
You can close your eyes when you're miles away
And hear my voice like a serenade
Sometimes the boys sleep with me. Sometimes in their own beds. More often than not, the boys start in theirs and end in mine. Some won't agree. But in my family, while my boys are small, we will wait for tomorrow together.
Tomorrow they won't need me much, not like they need me now.
I'm never, never giving them up.
How long do you want to be loved?
