A Bedtime Story by Grace, Age 7

NEW! "Penny the Penguin and Lesley the Leopard"

Chapter 1: Weird Stuff
Once upon a time in Antarctica, there lived a penguin named Penny.

Then he came to this big gray thing that he did not what it was

He touch it and then...Wowie Cuzowie he was in a land(???)

Surrounding him was...brown things.

Biggg brown things with green on top. "Where am I?" Asked Penny to himself.

"Hi! My name is Lesly!" Said a yellow thing with spots on it.

Chapter 2: Getting to know Lepord.
Soon they became best friends. Lepord took him to a school!

It's too hot!

Chapter 3: Nipples
A girl came in and said, "How are y'all doing?" That made Penny say "Lepord, when will I see you?" "Later!" said Lepord.

"What about my nipples?" he yelled. "They're showing!"
"They will be fine. Bye!" yelled Lepord.

Then they became best friends. "I wonder what I still can do about my nipples, he wondered." THE END.


  1. Hmm, I am somehow suddenly greatful that I have no idea what my 7 year old daughter is thinking when she is just staring off into space.

  2. Wowie Cuzowie that's a great story!

  3. HA! That is so funny. One to keep forever. What will she do about her nipples? Heh. Heh.

    And Wowie Cuzowie! What an awesome expression.

  4. That is an awesome bedtime story. I love it :-D

  5. i had noticed that the penguin had nipples and a bellybutton, but i SO did not expect them to be mentioned in the story. Ijust laughed so hard I cried.

  6. Nipples showing, Lesly? Dude, I feel your pain.

  7. ahh, our children's artwork, stories and drawn body parts...always keeping us on our toes. cute story, adorable 7 year old!

  8. As a father of three, I still have several stories and drawings by my kids. They are my life's treasures!

  9. Indeed. What to do about the nipples. Hmm.

  10. Nipples! Hahaha. That's a great story.

  11. All I can say is "What?" Nipples? Why oh why is Grace concerned about nipples? If my Autumn pulls a stunt like that, I don't know if I'd laugh or cry or rush her to the therapist!
