Dear Future Beastie Boy,
Even though you aren't born yet, you will be one of the lucky ones.
You have been loved since the day your mommy and daddy discovered you. Your abuela is anxiously waiting for your arrival, as is the rest of your huge Mexican family.
You have been loved since creation. You are a lucky one!
You are also very special. Your mother and father are two very passionate, artistic, and creative people. You will grow and flourish in an environment different than most. Your world will be filled with creativity, art, music, love, and healthy, organic foods-- considering both of your parents work for that hippie grocery store.
Your life will be more grand that most. Your ears will be filled with the sultry sounds of the greatest music ever created. Your father will see to that. Your eyes will constantly capture glimpses of your father's intriguing and grand artwork. You will live in a world with vibrant colors and mysterious melodies. You are one of the lucky ones!
Because you are a product of your father, you will be strong but compassionate. You will be artistic but grounded. You will be understanding but feisty. You will never want for anything. Your father will grant your every wish. He is already preparing to be your little league coach in just a few short years.
Even though I won't get to meet you when you arrive (because I live in Japan), know that I'm thinking of you. And, I'm sure your proud Papa will send me countless pictures of you. And, I can't wait for the day when I can meet you in person.
Until then, remember, you are one of the lucky ones!
