Happy 11th Birthday Robby

Dear Robby,

Happy Birthday to my sweet, loving, sensitive and curious little Koopa. Wow, where did the time go? It baffles me that I was just meeting you for the first time 11 years ago today. I remember holding you in my arms, falling instantly and completely in love.

Robby, you continue to bring adventure and enthusiasm to our lives. You have such a wonderfully unique perspective on the world, and I am amazed by your poetic way with words. You are on the horizon of a bright future, but right now I want you to remain my little boy.

You see, Momom isn't quite ready for you to become a teenager. I see glimpses of a burgeoning independence and it makes me feel both proud and sad. I am looking forward to seeing what your future holds because I have no doubt that it will be filled with amazing experiences and adventures. At the same time, I want you to always need me as much as you do right now.

I know as you spread your wings you will fly in new and wonderful directions. But please, for just a little while, don't stretch your wings too far. I know that you feel ready to grow up, but understand that your Daddy and I aren't ready to let go.

We love you Robby! I hope that you have a wonderful day. Continue to be your authentic self, because I think you're awesome.
