It is still dark when you wake up at 5:30 a.m. to babysit

Max is at the computer wearing a shirt that says ‘Blame My Sister’ and playing Webkinz. He’s singing a song that goes a little something like this, Bubba Petunia, Bubba Petunia, Bubba Petunia’s HERE! Bubba Petunia is what he calls Jaycie to make her mad. It just makes me laugh.

At 7 a.m. he leaned over my face, as I tried to sleep on the couch and announced, “I am so glad today is the last day of mystery bookclub.”
“Why?” I opened one eye to look at him.
“Because this book is horrible.”
“I just can’t relate.”

And now, I just asked him, “How are those shoes coming Boo?”
“They’re coming from Bubba Petunialand the most unhappiest place on earth!”

    Kids are a lot of responsibility, and very insistent.

    You must share the story of how “Bubba Petunia” came to be, if you know it. If you don’t, you must find out and then share it.
