Musings from Natalie #14

Natalie: "Am I the best daughter in the world?"
Me: "Of course."
Natalie: "After lunch can I have a brownie?"
Me: "Yes."
Natalie: "Mom, since I'm the best daughter in the world, can I have two brownies?"

The Itchy Monster
by Natalie

Once there was a little monster.  There were fleas all over him nibbling on his hair and on his knees.  He itched and itched until he itched the fleas away. 

“Ahhhh!” said the little monster.  

He itched some more until his hair came off. There was a big pile of hair and he didn’t know what to do.  As the pile of hair got bigger it started to shake and shake and shake.  Then it grew legs and red eyes and a nose and arms and big ears.  This scared the little monster and he ran away and never returned.

The End

I think Steve was a little proud when I told him Natalie heard this song on the radio and thought it was a "smokin song".
