All In The Family

Howdy and Good Evening! Big Bear (and as of Tuesday morning, Little Bear too) came down with a virus/fever/who-knows-what and stayed home from summer camp to play all day with mommy. So this blog is for them. We've read many of Laura Numeroff's books such as If You Give a Cat a Cupcake and If You Give a Moose A Muffin, so Big Bear decided she should write her own version. I like it because it gives you a pretty accurate picture of a day in the life of me and mine-minus the trip to Paris.

If You Give a Fox a French Fry

If you give a fox a French fry
He’ll want some ketchup to go with it.
And if you give him some ketchup
He’ll think of chicken nuggets.

If he thinks of chicken nuggets,
You’ll have to take him to McDonald’s
After he’s done eating,
He’ll want to play in the playground.

After playing for a while,
He’ll need to go to the bathroom.
If you take him to the bathroom,
He’ll want to play in the sink.

He’ll get all wet and you’ll
Have to go get extra napkins.
If you give him some napkins,
He’ll want ot make a plane out of them.

These airplanes will make him want to go
On a trip to France to see the Eiffel Tower.
Then he’ll want to come home.

On the plane ride back,
He’ll start to get hungry
So he’ll ask you for a French fry.

And chances are
If you give a fox a French fry
He’ll ask for some ketchup to go with it.

The End

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
