A bedtime story for Ada

An off-the-cuff story by Daddy (transcribed by Mama):
Once there was a beautiful princess named Ada. She was the most beautiful princess in all the land.

Princess Ada had a wish--a wish to have a strong neck. So she gathered all the sorcerers and magicians in the land and asked them if they could help her have a strong neck.

The sorcerer said that he could make her have a strong neck with a BING! of his wand. BING! But Princess Ada wasn't so sure that her neck was stronger with the BING! of his wand.

"I don't think it worked," she told him.

"Yes it did. Your neck is stronger." The sorcerer said.

"Are you sure? It doesn't feel stronger," she said has her head bobbled from side to side.

Princess Ada didn't think it worked. So she fired him.

Then she called the magician. He said, "I know how to make your neck strong. It doesn't take magic, it takes standing on your head. Think about how your legs get strong--you have to stand on them! It's the same with your head!"

So Princess Ada stood on her head until her face got red. When she got up, she had a headache and her neck still wasn't strong.

She went home and cried and cried--on her tummy. She hated being on her tummy so she cried even more. For an hour she cried on her tummy until she finally fell asleep. When she woke up, she smiled, until she realized she was on her tummy, and then she cried again.

Suddenly she realized that she was lifting her head up so big and strong! Her neck had gotten strong from all that tummy time!

Princess Ada was so happy because her neck was now the strongest neck in all the land.

The end.
This story was brought to you by parents who are paranoid that their daughter is getting a flat head from laying on her back.

Just so you know, I read this post yesterday to my roommates and we used to during the game we played at FHE--no one else knew what we were talking about, but my roommates and I had fun. :)
