Robbie loves his Aunt Hilary (Hiw-a-ree). There are always fun things to do at her house, like wash cars and play with sidewalk chalk. There's also an entire house to run around outside with a big goofball chasing you (there's no fence from the sides of the house, so Robbie can run around and around and around). There's a hill to roll down. And Aunt Hilary let's Robbie be a helper in ways that his terrible mom doesn't.
She let's him help decorate cakes.
And doesn't worry about it turning out just so (as I might...)
She let's him water the flowers.
Then, at the end of the day, when he just can't take it anymore, Robbie can curl up with Daddy for a good book and a little love.
