Iggie's Imagination

 Today's Story is by Melia

 Iggie  was  a  little   two   year   old   girl.  She  had   a  wild   imagination.  One   minute  she was   a   firefighter,  the  next   a  princess.  One  morning   when  Iggie  came  downstairs  for  breakfast  mommy    asked, "Who   are   you    today?"

" Iggie.,"she    replied.   Normally  she    would  say   something    like   Barney, or   Big  bird     or  a  dog, but   today   she  just  glumly  replied   with  who  she  really   was.  And    mommy  got   very   worried, Iggie   had   never    sounded  so   unhappy   before.

"Iggie   are    you      feeling  okay?"mommy  asked    worriedly.

" Yes" replied   unhappy  Iggie.

'My   poor  baby ' thought  mommy.    Later    that    day, around    noon,  Iggie's    sister, June    came   in  the living   room   where   mommy    and   Iggie   were     reading   their   books.

"Mom,    who's     Iggie   being? I  need   to    say  hello." June    remarked.

"Iggie.,"  the  little    two   year    old replied.
"
Oh   hi  Iggie.,"   June    said  surprised,  feeling   the   little  one's   head  to  make   sure   she   was  alright.

At    dinner  when  daddy  came  home  from   work  he   said,"How's     my  little________?"

Normally    Iggie    would  jump  out    and   excitedly   shout    out   what  she    was  that   day.    today  she    walked    over   and   said ,  "Iggie."   Daddy    was  shocked.   Mommy    and   June   just  shrugged, the   two  of  them  had  sang  songs, and  told  jokes    all   day   to    try    and   cheer    up    Iggie,  but  unfortunately   nothing  worked.

That    night   when     Iggie    was  all   ready    for    bed,  in  her    Elmo    footy   pajamas,   mommy,  daddy   and  June   all    walked    her  to  her    room    and  sat  down    on   her    bed  beside   her."All   right  kid,   spill    your   guts.   What's   wrong?"  daddy   asked eager   to  solve   his   daughter's   problem.

"No   wong.  Day  I  tend   I   sad.," Iggie   said   in    her  sweet   little    voice.   Her  mother   hugged    her,  and  everyone   breathed  a  sigh  of   relief.   Iggie   started  laughing.   Soon  so  did    mommy,  daddy,  and  June.   They  all  kissed   her    goodnight   and    she    soon   fell    fast   asleep.
