Quickly veering off to the park as fast as his legs can carry him!

“Sure, Little Man!” Daddy smiles and helps Bubbers down the hill and across the ditch.

“Tank tu!!” Bubbers smiles.

PICT0392 edited

“Smooch!!” he plants a sweet kiss on Daddy’s cheek.

“Aw,” Daddy blushes, “Anytime, Little Man!”

Then we threw him in the leaves!

PICT0405 edited

Empty?? he suddenly realizes.


PICT0406 edited

There you go!!

PICT0417 edited

Boy, I really have no idea why I’m dressed like a bumble bee….., Bubbers thinks to himself.

PICT0429 edited

But it’s so much fun…..

PICT0435 edited

I think everybody should do it!!

PICT0442 edited

Oh, holy smokes, he freezes in his tracks and looks off into the distance.

Is that what I think it is??

What’s this??

PICT0458 edited

A stick!!

Holy smokes…..

PICT0460 edited

This goes perfectly with my leaves!…..


Back to the blackberries!!

PICT0472 edited

“Ouch,” he says.

They poke.

PICT0478 edited

“Hey look!!” he cries.

It’s my neighbors!

PICT0479 edited

Wow, he watches in amazement and wonder.

Both my Dad and Joshua picking blackberries for me.

I’m in heaven!

Joshua’s such a good friend…..

PICT0487 edited

“You can see my stick,” Bubbers says solemnly.

“Wow, what a cool stick,” Joshua responds in awe.

“Tank tu,” Bubbers replies.

And then he heads back home…..

PICT0504 edited

But….. What on earth?!?

PICT0512 edited

Everybody’s playing in the leaves!

Even Joshua’s sister, Olivia!

I can’t go home now!!

PICT0518 edited

I have to play, too!!

PICT0519 edited

Ha, ha!!

This is really great.

I could do this all day!

PICT0520 edited


I’m done.

“Hey, Joshua?” he suddenly calls out to his neighbor.

PICT0526 edited

“Could you help a brother stand up?”

PICT0527 edited

“Sorry, Bubbers!” Joshua calls back, “I’m playing with the toys!”

PICT0533 edited

[Bubbers pauses].

[And wonders].

[Will I ever stand up again?]

PICT0536 edited

Then his mother heaves him up.

And they head inside for dinner.

About Heidi

Hello! My name is Heidi. I went to college and got a couple degrees. Then I worked as a Speech-language Pathologist for two years until Bubbers came along. While I loved my job and working with kids, I love my job as a mom best. I started a blog because I love to write. I’ve written stories my whole life. Deep down inside my heart, I secretly dream to be published in paper someday. Until then, I’m publishing for y’all and hope you enjoy it! Here are a few of my latest posts...

  1. LOL! “Unpredictable”–that’s Bubbers all right!! :) I love his randomness, but at times it makes writing a coherent blog post quite challenging… :) So I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Heidi I am so loving your dress rehearsal post. Bubbers looks like a real little boy walking along holding his pumpkin.
    Boys are so cute when they stop to investigate things like sticks.

  3. Very cute!! The obsession with sticks sure starts young, doesn’t it? We had to institute a “no sticks in the car” policy after a certain driver almost lost an eye. One of those rules you never thought you’d actually have to make a rule about…

    Darling pics!

  4. Too cute Heidi! I looked at this post with Joshua and he was saying Bubbers’ name! Then he was excited to see his face on there! Bubbers sure made a cute little bumblebee for Halloween! ~;o)

  5. What a fun story! Kids are so easily distracted! At least he figured out that something was supposed to be in the bucket!
