Lucy Girl

Coming home from the baseball game the other night, Jason and Lu were listening to "The Lucy Song" (Gracie by Ben Folds — we sing it with "Lucy" replacing "Gracie"). It is a sweet song about a little girl growing up, and in it there's this line: One day you're gonna want to go. Hope we taught you everything you need to know, Lucy girl.

Lu understood the line for the first time the other night, and it made her cry. She said she didn't want to leave home and not see us every day. And Jason explained that someday, maybe really soon, she would want to go, and that would be okay.

The song makes me cry every single time I hear it.
