Happy Birthday Bubba!

Day 26 – March SOLSC


Today is a day to celebrate!

It’s my “little” bro’s birthday.

Although, he doesn’t really enjoy his birthday all that much.

They just aren’t the same without our biggest celebrator –

Our dad.


lucky for Bubba, he has a niece who adores him,

and thinks he’s the best ever.

He is the sunshine in her world.

Filling the roll of both uncle and grandpa

He’s just so much like our dad

that when I watch him with Emma

I imagine my dad acting the same way,

doing the same things,

if he had the chance to meet her.

Today also happens to be her half birthday,

and she already has a plan to make cupcakes

to celebrate her Bubba.

So he’ll have to enjoy his birthday a little.

Who can pass up a cupcake or 2 anyway?!?

  1. I love the connection you make with your brother being like your dad to your daughter… and wonderful detail, that your brother’s birthday is her half birthday. The poetry format works here, making every line set a bit apart for our careful reading. My favorite line: ‘So he’ll have to enjoy his birthday a little.’ The children pull us out of ourselves, out of our grief, bring out the best!
