Grandma Wolf...

The following is based on a true story...

Once upon a time there was a toy maker who was Obsessed with Little Red Riding Hood. 
And she had a son who was so scared of Wolves that he could not sleep alone in his own bed 
for fear that they were hiding there.
One day he went to visit his Grandma with a basket of Easter eggs.
But could not go alone into any of the rooms in her big house 
because he thought the Wolf was hiding there.
Hiding out, under the bed, in every room, even the toilet.

Luckily the toy maker had made her son a Wolf Toy. 
A toy so cute that all his fears would fade away.
She crafted a Wolf dressed up as Grandma with Little Red Riding Hood hiding in the belly. 
With the addition of a floral nightgown, with lace trim.
This little boy could not be scared of a cross dressing Wolf in a Nightgown carrying a tiny doll.
Could he?  Surely not!

Alas he could....
"Oh Grandma, what big lips I have"
"And what a sly grin You have"
"And Grandma what big Hips you have"
"All the better to Hold you with."

And so the toy maker put Grandma Wolf away on a big high shelf,
and went back to the drawing board.

The moral of this story is, don't introduce your children to Wolf stories before they are old enough
or no one will ever get any sleep.
