Day 30: Bud

I have sometimes wondered 

Why the pet name for little boys is so often bud or buddy

While little girls get one of a thousand iterations of loveliness, sweetness, beauty or preciousness.

We want our sons to be kind and

We want our daughters to be friends

And still, when I see my friends’ boys, they are ‘bud’ and girls are little ‘loves’
