    These are all good- the first and third are my favorites!

  2. Pat Says:

    Every one of these 4 is so cute and really did make me laugh out loud. I love the Goldilocks allusions!

  3. Jim Says:

    Hi GMa, these were all good except that I didn’t like the last one. I don’t like people to get whacked, especially betweem married folk.

    My favorite was the second, I always did like Goldilocks.

    I agree with Jim, even though the whacking here is accidental.
    I chose to have him use whacking to protect her. Better, even, than accidents. LOL

    So cute Grandma. You were thinking along the same lines that I was. I also thought about the idea of some child owning them & the toys actually being toys. lol
