Well it seems something unusual is happening in the Ideal household, shall we go have a look?
Hmm, the children are playing in their bedroom, nothing to unusual about that.
Mother calls Tammy to come inside and practice her piano, Tommy follows and aggravates his sister by threatening to take the pumpkin, finally mother tells Tommy to stop bothering his sister she needs to practice!! Father doesn't know what to think?!
That night at the dinner table Father tells Tammy to stop playing with her pumpkin and eat her dinner!
Patti heads upstairs to tuck the children in.
When Patti gets upstairs the children are already in their beds and Tammy has got her pumpkin in the bed with her. Tammy, says Mother, don't you think its time to put the pumpkin away with the other decorations until next year? Oh No Mommy , you can't do that, how will the fairy God mother find it if it's in the attic? Cinderella needs her coach to get to the ball Mommy or she'll never meet prince charming and then she'll be stuck with the wicked stepmother and sisters forever!! OH I see says Mother, understanding finally dawning. Mother gently explains that Cinderella is a fairy tale and that its just make believe and there is no such things as fairy God Mothers and magical pumpkin coaches, but try as she might, Tammy is not convinced and insists upon keeping her pumpkin ! Oh well sighs Mother they are only children for a little while and she settles down to read Tammy's favorite bedtime story, Cinderella once more. As the children drift off to sleep Patti thinks to herself, Fairies indeed!! If Only!!
Mother heads back downstairs to tell Pete why their daughter has been dragging a pumpkin around when suddenly out of no where this thought just pops into her head....
She knows just what she needs to do, so she tells Pete she will be back in a jiffy and grabs her purse and heads out the door
Mother is back in a flash with her prize, and she quietly makes her way into the twins bedroom, where she will make the switch.. the toy coach and horses for the pumpkin!!
Back downstairs, Pete congratulates her on being such a clever Mother, I just don't know how you think these things up says Pete! Meanwhile upstairs............
Good night sweet children, pleasant dreams!!
Till next time, Love and blessings to you all!!
