While taking advantage of the pool at my Papa’s apartment, the Littles (that is, Poppyseed and Peach) and I were having difficulty deciding between the (unheated) swimming pool and the (overheated) spa.
FrumeSarah: Why, this is just like Goldilocks. We’ve got the Papa Bear pool (the spa) and the Mama Bear pool (the swimming pool). All we are missing is the Baby Bear pool.
At which point, Poppyseed indulged us with her very entertaining version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
As I was listening to Poppyseed’s account of that which transpired in a little home that housed talking bears, I remembered that one part of the story had troubled me since I was quite young.
FS: Does anyone else think it’s strange that Papa Bear and Mama Bear sleep in separate beds?
Poppyseed: Oh Mama, that’s just how some families work.
