The full-back ended a lengthy association with Boro earlier in the summer by agreeing a three-year deal with promoted Birmingham.
He returns to the Riverside on 1st September and is aiming to put one over his boyhood club.
"That's a big game I'm looking forward to," Parnaby told Sky Sports News.
"I hope to go there and get the right result."
Parnaby also revealed the role Blues manager Steve Bruce played in persuading him to move to St Andrews ahead of other clubs.
He added: "I think I've told most people that he's one of the reasons why I decided to come here.
"Once I spoke to him I had my mind made up really. It wasn't a long conversation.
"He just told me what he thought and where he wanted the club to go, and I was happy with what he had to offer really."
