Open Letter to Trace Adkins: No, I'm Not Gonna Miss This

Thursday, September 12, 2013
You're gonna miss this. You're gonna want this back. You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast...
 Dear Mr. Adkins,

I really love that sweet song about missing those precious, fleeting moments with your children. However, I must admit there are some things I will NOT miss, such as:

  • I will not miss projectile vomiting, especially when it's directed at my face. 
  • I will not miss dried vomit in my hair or its oh-so-delicious aroma. I prefer a different kind of perfume. 
  • I will not miss cleaning up the above mentioned projectile vomit from the kitchen floor, living room rug, couch, bed, get the picture.
Yes, there will be many moments I will miss when she's older. I'll really miss those big bear hugs and her sweet, slobbery, teething kisses. Oh, and also those adorable coos. She does have the sweetest smile and it lights up the room when she sees me. I'm dreading those teenage years when that smile isn't directed at me anymore.

But back to my point...
As I sit here, Mr. Adkins, with dried vomit in my hair and all over my clothes, no, I will not miss this.
