22

Dear Taylor Swift my 22 looked quite different than your 22 and to a lot of 22 year olds, but I wouldn't change it for anything. 




It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes, ah ah, ah ah.
It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers, ah ah, ah ah.



(we were blessed with lots of hand-me-downs thankfully!)


Yeah,
We're happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time
It's miserable and magical, oh, yeah
Tonight's the night when we forget about the deadlines
It's time



(toddlers -- so easy to go from happy to sad, especially when your brother pulls your hair)



Uh oh!
I don't know about you
But I'm feeling 22
Everything will be alright
If you keep me next to you
You don't know about me
But I'll bet you want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we're
22
22



(A twinsie first birthday)


It seems like one of those nights,
This place is too crowded.
Too many cool kids, ah ah, ah ah (who's Taylor Swift anyway, ew?)
It seems like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene and end up dreaming
Instead of sleeping.



(We may have been young parents but we did the best we could and clung to each other & still do)


Yeah,
We're happy, free, confused, and lonely in the best way
It's miserable and magical, oh, yeah
Tonight's the night when we forget about the heartbreaks
It's time



(One of those rare times I actually got out...a birthday party for a friend)


Uh oh! (hey!)
I don't know about you
But I'm feeling 22
Everything will be alright
If you keep me next to you
You don't know about me
But I'll bet you want to
Everything will be alright (alright)
If we just keep dancing like we're
22 (oh, oh, oh)
22
I don't know about you
22
22



(My dancing was more along the lines of dance parties in the kitchen to prevent from double toddler meltdowns)

It feels like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene.
It feels like one of those nights,
We won't be sleeping.
It feels like one of those nights,
You look like bad news,
I gotta have you,
I gotta have you.



(see those tired, tired eyes...being a mother of twin toddlers equals big time sleep deprived)


Oh oh yeah hey!
I don't know about you
But I'm feeling 22
Everything will be alright
If you keep me next to you
You don't know about me (you don't know about me)
But I'll bet you want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we're
22
22
22, yeah, yeah
22, yeah, yeah, yeah



(sometimes you just need the simple reminders, that you will be alright, double the work NOT double the trouble)

It feels like one of those nights,
We ditch the whole scene
It feels like one of those nights,
We won't be sleeping
It feels like one of those nights,
You look like bad news,
I gotta have you,
I gotta have you




(Some days were so hard but I was born to be a momma, I was born to be their momma && still to this day...almost 6 years later I feel just as spoiled and blessed from the moment I first met them)
