If You Give A...

If you have young children, then you are probably familiar with Laura Numeroff books. Some of my children's favorites are "If You Give A Pig A Pancake" and "If You Give A Moose A Muffin". (If you haven't shared Laura Numeroff's stories with your children, please do! They'll love them!)



With that theme in mind, the following is my personal version:



IF YOU GIVE A BREE A BLACKBERRY

BY: Cara




If you give a Bree a blackberry








She'll set aside her Eggo cereal








To free up her hands








For smearing said blackberry all over her legs








And arms








And face and clothes.



If you give a Bree a blackberry








She'll be mighty proud of the mess she's made of herself.



If you give a Bree a blackberry








She'll expect a bath right away



Even if you've got someplace to be








So if you give a Bree a blackberry



She's going to want a bath to go with it.




TO BE CONTINUED....

I remember that day. I looked in the back of your car and saw the dot on her forehead and said to you that she had made herself to look Indian! Oh did she give herself a good paint job! Good thing you were headed home!
