ALONG CAME A SPIDER
Little Miss Muffet,
Sat on her tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her,
Miss Muffet away.
In this case, the little miss muffet was my daughter J3, and she was eating a plate of brownies with icecream when the spider scared her....
You should have heard the commotion here when the spider hit!!My poor little fusspot was sitting there happily ,munching on her weekend treat,brownies with icecream..when all of a sudden, this big spider goes walking by about ten metres away....the next minute, all that was left of the treat was a huge splotch on my ceiling!!Dark brown choclate and creamy icecream dripped down onto her hair, while she was screaming blue murder. It took another two servings of brownies and the valiant efforts of her two big brothers, who risked life and limb(so they say...)to shoo away the offending party(the poor spider..he ever even knew what hit him!!)before she calmed down.
