Dear Bucky

Dear Bucky,

I think you might be the only person I’ve never sat down and wrote a letter to so it was about time since you’re working so hard on reading better. You’re turning ten this week and I can’t believe how big you are. I still remember when you had a bottle and a rattle too. But you’re not a baby anymore at all. You’re growing up fast and I am so proud of you. I wrote a poem about you a month after you were born when you were still a baby. Part of it was…

I look towards the future and how much you will grow
I have no expectations just a wish that you’ll always know
You’re my very special little one,
And I love you, my darling son.


I guess I never counted on how fast you would grow up. You’re the coolest person I know and I don’t mean cool the way you mean cool either! I mean you are the nicest, sweetest, cutest, smartest, most talented kid I know. One other time I wrote a poem about you that had this part in it…

I know that if you weren’t my son
I’d pick you to be my best friend
But either way I want you to know
I’ll love you forever without end

I could have made a “long story short” like you asked me to, but I want you to be a good reader someday. :-) Always remember I’m here for you, no matter what happens. I love you from here and to the moon and back.

Oh one other thing….I love you more than most! I won! I won! I put your song on here for you too! Mariah’s gonna be jealous that you like J’lo now too!

Love,
Mom

Thanks for jammin' with me every morning on the way to school!
