The Kicks Wake Up Krew

Weekday Mornings 5:30 - 10:00

This week on Dub’s playlist I’m playing a song for my daughter. It’s crazy to think that Maddie will be one this weekend. And this has definitely been the fastest year of my life. I feel like it was just yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital, and settling into our new lives as parents. How has it already been a year?

Let’s Go Back In Time

The song I’m featuring this week just hits me different now. Let me take you back to April of last year. In April of 2022, Kelsey and I did our gender reveal, and found out we were having a baby girl. Well, after everyone left the gender reveal I went to throw away a bunch of trash in the dumpster. On the ride to the dumpster, I was listening to a George Strait playlist.

I just had the playlist on shuffle. This song wasn’t the first song that played, it was probably the third or fourth. And, it’s always been a George Strait song that I’ve loved. But hearing it that day just hit me different. When I heard this song that day, it made me tear up in a big way. Even now, a year later, I still tear up every time I hear this song.

Whenever Maddie gets old enough to really get it, I want to play her this song, and let her know that this is how her daddy feels about her. I know I won’t be able to get through it without tearing up, heck I’m tearing up typing this right now.
