It's been a while, but I will be here in the physical way more often now. It's also been a while since I picked up the pen and pad. Rusty. Well.... here ya go. Thanks for reading.
Graduation part 1 -For Amir.
No cap No gown Just smiles Ear to ear Delicate 5 year sunshine Teeth ainít old enough to cut butter
Daddy when Iím 6Ö Youíre still 5 RelaxÖ Enjoy thatÖ cause lord knows When itís over itís over When itís on itís on Daddy when Iím 7Ö Wait nowÖ I said enjoy 5Ö Cause soon itís stealing time Sneaking out Awkward advances The stress of sexual encounters, pimples and girls Nauseating nervousness of likes and dislikes put-downs, hell-noís and are-you-crazys Best friend laughter at your expense Best friend pressures to hit blocks and corners Like Lamborghiniís With new drivers Wakes before their time Tears before the joy And I ainít even talking high school yet Daddy when Iím 8 itíllÖ Slow downÖ Eat bubble-gum and mess up Mommies carpet Drop your ice cream cone As you do Usain Bolt dashes to back porches With us sippin lemonade Remembering womb departures, centimeter growth spurts And that knee-slide crawl thing you used to do Time flies like kites and kids superhero imaginations
So just be 5Ö Be proud As you walk down that pre-k aisle Crayon dipped diploma in hand One down Plenty to go

I've been told ... sometimes ... those with kids have a tendency to Un-conscionusly rush them to grow up ... (Like hurry up and walk /hurry up and talk /hurry up and get potty trained /hurry up and .... yadda yadda) ... before you know it, they're all independent and don't "need" you anymore! --
Sounds like a wise daddy (YOU ARE) not to rush lil' man to grow up too quickly.
Enjoy every minute while you can!

He literally graduates Pre-K tomorrow morning. He's always trying to "get bigger". And I remember wanting to grow up fast. Then... I did. Now, as an adult I understand how precious and SHORT that time really is. So I want him to enjoy it.
Thx for the read!
