Can't figure out the translation of "a" in this context.
A is a preoposition.
The whole sentence is something like
(Le mando) besos a mi amor
(I send) kisses to (for) my love.
Besos is the direct object (the thing that you send) and "mi amor" is the indirect object (the person or thing that receives the direct object). In Spanish, when the object is not a thing but a person, you should use the preposition "a" before it.
Okay, thank you. That helps.
Does 'Mucho besos a mi osito...' mean 'Many kisses for my teddy bear'? Does it make sense when I say it like that?
To the osito thing..
It literally means, "my little bear".
Stuffed animals are usually "de peluche."
Teddy bear : "osito de peluche".
Osito is a pet name in Spanish... very cute! It's like saying "Kisses for my sweetie" or something.
Separate names with a comma.
