Bu/ba is a multipurpose word meaning ball, boy, bus, pretty much anything that starts with B. Just this week, the L-sound appeared at the end of ba as The Boy was showing me a ball. "Bal," he said.

Hillary and Michelle began their friendship in college talking about guys, parties and, occasionally, the future.
Without planning it, their husbands each proposed on the same day in 2005, and in 2008, both couples had their first child. Hillary, who lives in Florida, had The Boy in January, and Michelle, who lives in Ohio, had Peanut in July. The Lad, Hillary's second child, arrived Christmas Day 2009. Roughly a year later, Michelle's second little girl made her debut.
