Left Behind Little Sister

A big brother helps his little sister cope with being left behind when he and his dad go to a football game.

It’s no fun being the little sister who gets left behind. As the youngest kid in a big family, I know exactly how she felt.

A couple weeks ago my husband Robert scored a couple of OU tickets. He was planning on taking our oldest our daughter, Juliette, but unfortunately, she had to work. So, he decided to take Sullivan. That meant Bridgy had to stay behind without her best brother and playmate.

Sully handled the situation like a pro. He taught us all a lesson in how not to gloat like a pig when others get left behind. First, you give your little sister a sweet hug and kiss on the head and tell her you love her and you’ll bring her back a Lalaloopsy or Wild Kratts surprise. Next, you’re completely magnanimous in the moment. Sullivan genuinely felt Bridgette’s disappointment. There were tears in his eyes. It broke his heart to leave behind his little buddy.

You’re awesome, Sully!

Football is so big in Oklahoma, and I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I’ve never been to an OU game. I even went to graduate school at the University of Oklahoma, but it never even occurred to me to get tickets or go to a game. Something tells me, this little crew is going to see their fair share of OU football games. Next time, nobody is getting left behind!
