Dear Tiger,

I am writing this letter for the whole world to read, because there are things that need to be said.

Though, especially over the last half year, we have had a lot of ups and downs and things have not been easy, I appreciate every moment we spent together.

Okay, let’s face it. I’m a cool mom!

At least according to the eldest of my two sons.
I never tried to be particularly cool, but it seems, somehow I found the secret to relating to my 14 year-old.
Maybe it has to do with the fact that I was barely out of my teens when I got Bucky, or that I am still sometimes a child/teenager at heart myself.
All I can say is that, the way I am doing it seems to be working. So, I decided to share my experiences with all of you.
