Birthday Battle


This day marks the anniversary of your birth.
In your honor, I will do battle with you on the field of glory!


Actually, what I heard Maria say is, "Happy birthday, William. Wanna have a battle?" And even though William had just finished a round of sword and cudgel clashing with Max, he accepted Maria's earnest and heartfelt offer.


Calling with full volume, I could hear Maria repeating her battle cry: "Happy... birthday... William!" And then as she charged toward him, "Fus ro dah!"


A three-way battle of unrelenting force, yes.
I will refrain from tearfully, joyfully, extremely emotionally recalling William's birth and every precious milestone since. Just know that I am happy, proud, and grateful to see this day, and I look forward to many celebrations to come.


Happy Birthday, William, and may any obstacles that arise be conquered by your wit, intelligence, kindness, dedication, and true heart.

  4. When I first met William he was about 4 years old, and he would take sticks and make them into swords. Both Natalie and I had grand delusions that our boys would not use weapons in their imaginary play :) Shortly thereafter, I realized to relax and let boys be boys. I love our Boys!
