Cuteness Venom

My son, Bubba, was terrorizing his sister. Again. All she wanted to do was sit on the sofa and listen to the music on her iPod.  But the boy kept poking her and kicking her feet.

"Bubba, stop it!" she complained.

The boy wouldn't stop.

This called for parental involvement.  "Bubba, why do you feel it is necessary to poke your sister like that?" I asked.

"I'm just giving her some of my cuteness venom," he said.

"Cuteness venom?" I asked.

"Yeah, Mama.  Sisters don't have enough, so it's up to the brothers to give them some.  She'll be much nicer if I poke her a little more!"

Right.

    1. I can't think of a time poking has ever resulted in anything cute. But apparently Bubba has had other experiences.

  8. Once again, Bubba proves what an awesome imagination he has. You should sign him on as a co-author.

  10. And why do I believe he's right? It must be the fact that I had two boys filled with that venom they loved to share.

  11. I think she has enough cuteness venom! She doesn't need any more pokes. She'll need repairs.

  15. I'm thinking she might take his finger right off, before the cuteness venom sets in.
