Goldilocks and the Window

When Goldilocks saw the window, she couldn’t resist.

She climbed right up and into it.

But declining made her tired.  So she looked around.  There were three beds.

She lay down the little bed.  It was just right.  It was too right.  Thinking about how right it was kept her from falling asleep.

She climbed on the middle sized bed.  It was too soft.

She climbed on the big bed.  It was hard.  But her back had been hurting her, and hare was what she needed.

She soon fell asleep.

When she woke up, she climbed down from the bad, made the three beds up, then went exploring.

In the living room she found three chairs.  She wasn’t tired, so she didn’t need to sit down.

But she saw that the little chair was broken.  “How sad!” she said.

She couldn’t just leave it like that, so she fixed the chair.

It was as good as new.

In the kitchen she saw three empty bowls sitting on the table.

They looked too empty.  Whoever lived in this house would appreciate a nice hot meal when they came home.

So Goldilocks cooked up a batch of her famous porridge, and filled each bowl.

Then she did some straightening, some mopping, some dusting, some sweeping.  And when the house was perfect, she headed out into the forest and home.

Not long later, the three Bears came home.

“Somebody’s been cooking me porridge!” said Papa Bear

“Somebody’s been cooking me porridge!”  said Mama Bear.

“Yum! Porridge!” said Baby Bear.  And he ate it all up.

“Somebody’s been sitting in my chair!”  said Papa Bear.

“Somebody’s been sitting in my chair!”  said Mama Bear.

“Somebody fixed my chair!”  said Baby Bear.

They went looking to find who had done the cooking, who had done the fixing.

“Somebody’s been sleeping in my bed,” said Papa Bear.

“Somebody’s been sleeping in my bed,” said Mama Bear.

“Somebody made my bed!”  said Baby Bear. “And I hope she comes back soon!”

“Me too, baby bear,” said Mama Bear.  “Me too.”
