The Lost Scream

My son was home sick today.  The germ apparently affected his voice.

"Mama," he croaked.  "I need a scream recharger."  He demonstrated by attempting to scream.  The sound that came out  sounded something like a strangled chicken. (Like I know what one of those sound like!)

"Bubba, you need to rest your voice!"

"No Mama, I need to find my voice.  Can you help me?"

Um, yeah. 

So, ladies and gentleman, if you happen to find my boy's voice lying around somewhere, please hide it in a place where it can never be found.  Do not return it.  I repeat, do not return it!  I kind of like that the scream is gone.

  5. *LOL* Nope, don't see any little boys' voices around here. Just some lump under the couch cushion.

    1. I think Alex found it, which means he'll never hear his voice again!

    1. He was a very big baby. The name, "Bubba" has stuck ever since.
