Two New Stories by Natalie!

Natalie told Mike different versions of this story three times tonight.  She turns the pages of a real book and tells a totally different story.  I'm still not a 100% sure Annabell and snickity sneezes aren't something she heard somewhere else.

"Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Annabell and she has snickity sneezes.  And she didn't know what to do.  So she went in her room to rest her nose.  Her mother came in (we can't remember what the mom did).  She was so sick she couldn't blow her noes.  And she had the snickity sneezes all day, and all afternoon, and all after morning, and after play group, and after nap." 

Natalie told me this story a couple of days ago (and I jotted it down as she said it).  This one is based off of the pages in a small lift-the-flap book William got for Christmas about jungle animals.  There is no butterfly in the book, but what he finds are what was in the pictures.  Most impressive to me was her use of the word "suddenly."

"Once upon a time, there was a butterfly named Jonas.  He was looking for some food.  He found a scary lion.  He found some flowers - pick, pick, pick.  He found some water to drink.  Then they found foot to eat.  Then a bird.  Then a jaguar and they ran away because the jaguar was scary.  And soon there was a nice hippo talking to them.  the butterfly didn't know what to do.  Suddenly, every was all together".
