King of Anything

Ellie really liked to sit on the playroom floor and do her little back-and-forth dance to this one... And I feel like it kind of applies right now... I can just imagine Ellie knowing what I mean by this and giving me her funny little growl... I miss her SO much...
(this one is for lil Beck too!)

King of Anything
- Sara Bareilles
Keep drinking coffee, stare me down across the table
While I look outside
So many things I'd say if only I were able
But I just keep quiet and count the cars that pass by

You've got opinions, man
We're all entitled to 'em
But I never asked

So let me thank you for your time
And try not to waste any more of mine
Get out of here fast

I hate to break it to you babe
But I'm not drowning
There's no one here to save

Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So, you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything?

You sound so innocent
All full of good intent
Swear you know best

But you expect me to
Jump up on-board with you
Ride off into your delusional sunset

I'm not the one who's lost
With no direction, oh
But you'll never see

You're so busy making masks
With my name on it in all caps
You've got the talking down
Just not the listening

Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything?

All my life I've tried
To make everybody happy while I just hurt and hide
Waiting for someone to tell me it's my turn
To decide

Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything?

Who cares if you disagree? You are not me
Who made you king of anything?
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything?

Let me hold your crown, babe

She's such a little goofball! I don't think anyone could look at her and not fall in love with that face.

Oh what a cutie, with such a great goofy smile! I hope these pictures are a comfort to you - I know sometimes looking through photos of our Elizabeth is my best therapy.

She is so stinkin' cute. Thanks for the shout out to Beckett. Love seeing all your beautiful photos of Ellie and Max.
