If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

Clearly Laura Numeroff & Felicia Bond dealt with toddlers before conjuring up this story.

I've decided that between Avy's predictability and my ESP skills, we could come up with a story of our own.

Here Goes:

If You Sit A Red-Head Down for Breakfast
written by Little-Red's Mum

I dedicate this story to the little red-head mouse that keeps me running all day.

If you sit a Red-Head down for Breakfast, she'll want to pray of course.
As soon as she sits in her seat, she will fold her arms and point to the person she chooses to pray.

All the eating will no doubt produce much mess, so Mom will clean it up and take the trash outside.
When Mom clicks the door to unlock, Little-Red will hear that ever-so-slight sound from across the house and come petering down the hallway, through the living room, and out the back door to play with her ball/slide blow-up set.

All that playing will make Little-Red tired & she will surely then need a nap. So, of course Mom will head to the cupboard to get A's bottle. As soon as Avy sees her bottle being reached for, she will start to say, "BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!"
just like the microwave...
b/c she knows that's where it's going.

After Little-Red Mouse wakes up from her nap, she will undoubtedly need a little snacky-snack. Her responsible Mother will take her to the pantry and as soon as Little-Red sees the wood shelves, she will start to bend her index finger and say, "CH..CH..CH!" as if she's spraying room spray. So the 2 will set out throughout the house spraying room spray.
1st in the living room.
2nd in all the bedrooms.
3rd in the bathroom.
4th back to the living room.
5th a final spray in the kitchen.

Little-Red will have her choice of which spray she wants Mummy to spray, and 99% of the time it will be the red can; the Cranberry Mango.

Upon restoring the sprays to their rightful shelf, Avykins Mouse will traipse past the refirgerator. Walking past the fridge will cause her to smack her chest as if to say, "Please." Mom will open the fridge and Little-Red will unquestioningly choose herself a clementine, and then ask for a little shot of whipped cream on her finger.

As her Mom puts her in her high chair to eat her hearty snack of vitamin C and pure fat...
Yep, you guessed it.
Little-Red will fold her arms and want to choose who will say the prayer.


The funny thing is, this is all very true.
high chair = prayer
clicking lock = outside play
.........and so forth.

As mentioned previously......clearly Laura & Felicia live in the world of toddlerhood.

Sounds about like our house! We have a little less structure with 2kids in the house, but when it was just Ty and I you could set your watch to the routines. Some days I thought I was in the movie Groundhogs day!

Avy's got that routine down pat, baby!
