If You Give a Toddler a Popsicle

By Sophie Piron

 

 

If a child has a cherry popsicle then she

 

will let it drip on her hand.

 

If it drips on her hand then you

 

will take the popsicle away.

 

 

If you take the popsicle away then

 

the toddler will throw a tantrum.

 

If she throws her tantrum then you will probably  

 give her the popsicle back.

 

If you give her the popsicle back

 

 

it will already have melted

 

 

 

If this popsicle has basically melted,

 

then the toddler will eat it as fast as she can

 

If the toddler eats the popsicle as fast as she

 

can then she will get a sugar rush.

 

 

 

If she gets a sugar rush

 

then she will want to play.

 

If she plays then she will want

 

to play tag on the swing set.

 

If the toddler is playing tag on the swingset

 

then the toddler might scrape her knee.

 

If she scrapes her knee

 

 then the girl will begin to cry.

 

If the toddler begins to cry 

 

then you will run inside to get band-aids.

 

If the band-aids are applied

 

then the toddler will begin to calm down.

 

If the toddler begins to calm down

 

 then she will take a nap.

 

If the girl takes a nap

 

 then she will wake up and hungry.

 

If she wakes up hungry

 

 then she will ask for a cherry popsicle.
