You could have had a normal nickname, Lump or Bean or something, but that’s not how your mom and I think. We like geeky and strange things, I hope you will too.
In my first letter to your sister I told her we weren’t perfect, and that is still true. I can be impatient, prone to being loud, and sometimes I’m impossibly dense.
As your parents we’ll do our best for you, we’ll try to help, understand, and encourage you. At some point we will fail. I’m sorry for that but it’s inevitable. I hope you’ll forgive us. No matter what, there is one thing we’ll never fail to do and that’s love you. No matter what, we’ll always love you!
If I have one wish for you, it’s that you grow up to understand the strength in love, in emotion, and in knowing yourself. That you’ll understand the power of words and the unmitigated strength of kindness.
I love you Baby Pegasus,
Your weepy Father
