Happy twenty-fifth birthday, Punk! Happy, happy, birthday.
Daddy and I are so very glad you were born, and that, because it was meant to be, we found our way to each other.
Our l-o-n-g journey from "we to three" was bumpy and winding, and despite that, or maybe because of it, it can best be summed up in five little words; "You were worth the wait!" You WERE worth the wait.
Today, I'm throwing it all the way back to your fourth birthday when you were obsessed with all things cowboy, from this sweet felt hat to the little red boots you wore with everything from bathing suits to pajamas.
Whenever we asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up, the answer was always, "I wanna be a cookin' cowboy!" This still tickles me, and I'm not sure if I'm sad or relieved that dream wasn't realized.
With that said, you're the author of your own story, and it's never too late to make your wildest, cowboy, dreams come true if you really want them to.
And to show my support, I'll even lend you the pony on a stick you "rode" everywhere in case you want to trade in your current ride for something that gets better mileage.
You are my joyspot! I love you very much.
