Sissy is guest blogging today! Here she is:
During lunch yesterday, Piper made this “very ‘aportant” announcement:
“Okay, everyone. See what I’m saying? After lunch, I will be presenting a lalaloopsy play or show. If you need to go to the bathroom, there’s potty breaks. The show is called ‘My Dream’ because me, Piper, dreamed it. I always wanted a lalaloopsy dream, and now I have one! There will be some sad parts, so stick with me. It will be fad-u-lous! Make sure to come!”
Piper promised a show in the afternoon. After a quick trip to the mall and then dinner, she informed us that the title of the show had miraculously changed to “The Five Little Fairies” and that the lalaloopsies were no longer the stars of the show. A lot can change in 4 hours. But when I reminded her of the show thirty minutes later, she replied in her sassiest voice, “Sissy, after this game! We only have three pigs left!” I didn’t ask her what that meant.
I finally got a five minute play out of her, but then there was yet another distraction. A dance party with Daddy sounded so much more fun.
“What happened to the play?” I asked Piper. “I’ve been waiting all day for the show.”
“Show? What show? We need you at the Dance Party! We can’t sing Firework!” she responded.
Apparently, the show must NOT go on.
Sissy has a career in journalism – I can see it now – and I love her perky conclusion!
I’m glad you liked it! Sissy loves blogging and observing the Piper in her native habitat for good stories.
Wow, we may have found the next Judy Blume. Great story. Great writer!! We laughed our heads off.
Thanks! Sissy shows me up in the blog every time!
Apparently! Great story, Sissy! 😀
Thanks, Emily! She’s a great storyteller and she has a keen eye for the Piper.
Sissy: I’ll leave my business card and contact information at the front desk. If you ever want to write for a blog that pays better, let me know.
Sissy says she’ll take it under consideration. This blog pays in steamy bowls of homemade oatmeal dotted with chocolate chips. Top that!
