Rob was born to my baby sis Rena when she was just 19. She was a young single lass, and she and Rob came home to a family of Ma, Da, and four brothers. And all the brothers instantly became 'fathers' to Rob. I think this may have set us up for the future parents we would eventually become.
We all just loved him from day one. We would actually fight over who's turn it was to feed/change/bathe him!
He's 25 now, and meself all the brothers still all have a father/son relationship with him. We were all out tonight, celebrating his sister Edel's 21st brthday, a great night. But all the brothers were spending the night with Rob, for he is moving to Australia on Monday with his lovely Emily. And we are going to miss him so much!
Farewell 'our son'. Have a great time in Oz, don't forget your uncles who love you dearly, come back before we are all too old to remember you, but most of all remember all your 'fathers'! :¬)
