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:


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.

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!
