I showed you this picture on your morning rush out to school.
You knew what it was instantly and asked "was this last summer?"
And then you said "Ohhh Mamacita Poocharita" which is your pet name for me.
You gave me a big hug. A long hug. Even though Daddy was beeping
to hurry to you get out to the truck where he and Allison were waiting
as usual for you to finish getting ready for school. But you ignored them.
Sockless. Shoeless. Without your homework.
You took some time to give me a really good hug.
And like the wind you rushed to your room to get socks and shoes and homework.
You called out "I Love You" to me at least 25 times on your way out the door.
You say I love you at least 50 times everynight.
It already breaks my heart that someday you’ll be old enough to leave me.
I want you to grow up and live your life.
But I also want to freeze time and live in the here and now forever.
But here we are already past the half way mark. You are now ten.
I love you more than the universe my boy. My sweet baby.
You will always be my baby in my heart.
