For a couple of weeks now Bubba has been calling to check in with Dad in the mornings.  This helps him gets focused as he doesn’t always like to do his schoolwork, and can get disrespectful toward me. 

Yesterday, he called from our landline and got Shane’s voicemail.  Then he went and got my cellphone and asked how to call daddy on it.  When Shane called back he asked if I heard the message Bubba left.  I said no, but here’s what he said:

"This is Bubba, I’m calling to check in but since your not there, I’ll try to call you on Mom’s cellphone"
