A Scary Story


A long time ago in a far away village {not so far away, and not really that long ago} a little boy was born. His mommy and daddy had lots and lots of time to give to him. So they spoon fed him {for way too long} so he could keep his precious little hands clean. They bathed him (even when he was not smelly~ because, well, they had the time.) They even put a clean shirt on him if there was even the teeny tiniest crumb on his current shirt. One day something FRIGHTENING happened. The mommy and daddy had another baby. YIKES! Not so scary you say? Well, now, that mommy and daddy had less time to clean that first little boy's hands and shirts (SHRIEK!!!!!!!) On the other hand Rowan's new little brother was not so clean. Brinley stuck his hands in the dog's food, ate things off of the floor, and he would even reach into the potty to splash around in the water. Rowan was terrified by these monstrous behaviors. And here comes the scary part. On a day that started out as clean as any other... that little boy, Rowan, who did NOT like messy hands was FORCED by big, giant people to stick his hand inside a ooooooey gooooey pumpkin! Rowan flailed, shrieked, and pleaded for them to stop, but they didn't. They let out roarous laughs "Bwahahaha" at his expense. They even recorded the torturous moment. They forced Rowan to, to, to GET DIRTY! It was terrifying. It gets worse... Rowan had to watch wide-eyed as they got his little brother. He was so little and helpless. But it happened. They made Brinley stick his hand in there too NOOOOOOO. After Rowan's tears started to clear he realized Brinley, WILLINGLY grabbed chunks of pumpkin out with his bare hands. Brinley loved the messy pumpkin, he went so far as to eat that ooooey gooooey orange thing. Now Rowan is now walking around with messy and hands and is slightly ok with it for once (insert screams of terror.) No one ever knew what happened after that... did he ever wash his hands again? Did he like the pumpkin? Did he like being messy? (DUN DUN DUN) We may never know...


 



and they lived happily ever after!

haha Kimmy, Andy thought it was mean that I posted those pictures:) I didn't think so cause I have the one digging in on his own. He is such an OCD perfectionist~ we have no idea where he got that from...
