My boy, our “Special Buddy Dates” that happened during the last few hours of Disneyland’s day, they are some of my most precious memories.
You and me, buddy, jetting around the park, sneaking in secret churros, hunting pins and shooting Zurg. You taking a sip of my coffee and then dropping it and we just laughed and laughed.
You picking out a “special buddy” and ending up with a stuffed #Porg out of all of the stuffed animals in the whole park. Then you sat on my lap while I drove the scooter back to our hotel, your long legs flopping and arms holding onto me, and then slowly going limp as the thump-thump-thump of the sidewalk underneath us lulled you to sleep. You even drooled on me.
Was that last time you’ll ever fall asleep on me? It used to be everyday, my boy.
I know we have our hard moments because you are always pissed that you aren’t the grownup in our relationship. I’m sorry it’s so hard on you. I’m so glad that we have moments and memories where you are blissfully happy and filled with child-like wonder instead of rushing to grow up as fast as you can. I promise you, you have it so good right now! Enjoy being little! I love you always, Special Buddy. You fill my heart with secret churros.
