What do I do when my little pink bundle of joy is having a birthday and I can’t share this most special of days with her?
I find her favorite old friend
~~ doggy ~~
(who is also missing his girl)
and I dress him up with a new pink bow.
I think about the day she received Doggy from her new baby brother when she had just turned 3 and he was born ~~ 21 years ago.
His fur has all the signs of a well-loved and cuddled friend who has shared so many birthdays with her!
Of course there are memories of other birthdays, like her 10th, spent happily picking apples and baking apple pies with the baby brother.
Guess we could bake a pie. Doggy and me.
And we can set the table.
And we can plan a wonderful day of fun in the future
~~ when we can all be together ~~
Mr. Fun, my pink bundle of joy, her brother who is all those miles away “across the pond” in Scotland, doggy, of course Miss Nellie Belle,
and me, the Mom.
Happy Birthday little pumpkin!
~~ September 16th ~~
We love you and are so proud of you.
You are the sunshine of our lives.
and just a little bit 🙁
~~I’m joining parties with these lovely ladies~~
