Hoooooo–hokay. I’m still wiping my tears away from this one. We celebrated Leo’s birthday today. His actual birthday is tomorrow, but I want to share with you a poem Leo wrote today, February 9, 2020, on his last day as a seven-year-old. (the squished words say “to buddys”)
He says he got the idea because they’re learning about compound words at school and also because I’ve been reading him Shel Silverstein poems. It’s even better because he wrote it with his brand new rainbow colored pencil.
I looked at Kevin with those tears in my eyes and said, “He’s got the gift.”
And now we have another budding poet in the family.
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Bud Light for everyone!
