Happy Birthday Duck!

June 3, 2008

8 years ago today, my gorgeous lively boy entered the world with a lusty cry, a black eye, and a mission to change the world. My life has never been the same. I love you, Duck. I adore you. You are my partner, my tutor, my muse, my Karma, my barometer, my child, my future, my heart. Happy Birthday!!

“1) A boy is a
magical creature you can lock him out of your workshop, but you can’t
lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you
can’t get him out of your mind. Might as well give up he is your
captor, your jailer, your boss and your master a freckled-faced,
pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at
night with only the shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can
mend them like new with two magic words Hi, Dad!

2)Boys are found everywhere — on top of, underneath, inside of,
climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love
them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them,
adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt
on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in
its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.”
