Happy 🔟th Birthday to my dream come true, PoPpY RuE!! My tiny fashionista from the beginning. Your heart is made of pure GOLD. Kindness radiates from your soul. Your sassiness balances it out to keep me on my toes—your creative ability in all things; writing, singing, acting, painting, drawing, and storytelling. Your laughter is infectious. Your ability to question everything and draw conclusions makes me incredibly proud. Your activist spirit from so early on started with becoming a vegetarian at age 4. Your wit, sparkle, and shine make me melt. Your love for animals, your friends, and your family. My sidekick, partner in crime, and best friend. Last year, your teacher called you a “non-conformist” like it was a bad thing, but I couldn’t have been more proud. This year, your teachers told me how intelligent and kind you are- and how much they love you. I don’t know how I would have survived this life without you.
I love you, my little duck—quack, quack to the moon and back. I’ve got you and your little soul on fire for life. I cannot wait to continue watching all the incredible things you bring to the world. I am so lucky to be your mama.
