    I hope you dance: by Lee Ann Womack

    I hope you never lose your sense of wonder

    You get your fill to eat

    But always keep that hunger

    May you never take one single breath for granted

    God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

    I hope you still feel small

    When you stand by the ocean

    Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens

    Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

    I hope you dance

    I hope you dance

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

    Never settle for the path of least resistance

    Living might mean taking chances

    But they're worth taking

    Lovin' might be a mistake

    But it's worth making

    Don't let some hell bent heart

    Leave you bitter

    When you come close to selling out

    Reconsider

    Give the heavens above

    More than just a passing glance

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

    I hope you dance

    (Time is a real and constant motion always)

    I hope you dance

    (Rolling us along)

    I hope you dance

    (Tell me who)

    I hope you dance

    (Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)

    (Where those years have gone)

    I hope you still feel small

    When you stand by the ocean

    Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens

    Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

    Dance

    I hope you dance

    I hope you dance

    (Time is a real and constant motion always)

    I hope you dance

    (Rolling us along)

    I hope you dance

    (Tell me who)

    (Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)

    I hope you dance

    (Where those years have gone)

    (Tell me who)

    (Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)

    (Where those years have gone)

    I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden is not a traditional mother-daughter song, I think it is intended as a love song but it is the "theme song" for my children from I, and it says nothing inappropriate that makes it a love song instead of a mother song.

    Somebody's Hero by Jamie O'Neal

    When You Have A Child and/or You're Gonna Be, both by Reba McEntire

    In my daugthers eyes by Marina McBride

    In my daughter's eyes, I am a hero.

    I am strong an' wise,

    And I know no fear.

    But the truth is plain to see:

    She was sent to rescue me,

    I see who I wanna be, in my daughter's eyes.

    In my daughter's eyes, everyone is equal,

    Darkness turns to light,

    And the world is at peace.

    This miracle God gave to me,

    Gives me strength when I am weak.

    I find reason to believe, in my daughter's eyes.

    An' when she wraps her hand around my finger,

    Oh, it puts a smile in my heart.

    Everything becomes a little clearer.

    I realise what life is all about.

    It's hangin' on when your heart has had enough;

    It's givin' more when you feel like givin' up.

    I've seen the light: it's in my daughter's eyes.

    In my daughter's eyes, I can see the future.

    A reflection of who I am,

    An' what will be.

    An' though she'll grow an', some day, leave:

    Maybe raise a family,

    When I'm gone, I hope you'll see,

    How happy she made me,

    For I'll be there, in my daughter's eyes

    I'm heading into the preteen years with my daughter, too & the song "Wouldn't Change A Thing" from Camp Rock 2, fits us nicely sometimes -

    Like fire and rain

    (Like fire and rain)

    You can drive me insane

    (You can drive me insane)

    But I can't stay mad at you for anything

    We're Venus and Mars

    (We're Venus and Mars)

    We're like different stars

    (Like different stars)

    But you're the harmony to every song I sing

    And I wouldn't change a thing

    26 cents by the Wilkinsons ---unsure of spelling (It is country and they were a family group that had a one hit wonder) Very good song though.
