Pajamas for Tootsie

Today's Story is by Melia

 Tootsie  Lawrence was 5 years old. She lived with her mother, father, sister Candy, and her other sister Lolly. Lolly, and Candy were twins. "Tootsie come on! We don't want to be late!" shouted Mother. 

 Tootsie came glumly moping down the staircase. "Yes we do!" Tootsie yelled back.

They were going, as a family of five, to get new pajamas for Tootsie, Lolly, and Candy. Tootsie simply didn't want to go. She had grown very attached to her pink teddy P.J's. She'd had them since she was  born, and had just grown out of  them two days ago. As father parked Tootsie started crying. 

 "It's okay baby. I know it hurts, but you can keep the old ones." Father soothed. They walked into the clothing store. Candy chose a green nightgown. Lolly chose a polka-dot nightgown. The twins loved nightgowns.  

 "Why don't you get the candy-cane nightgown?" suggested Candy, 

 "How about the bunny nightgown? suggested Lolly. 

 The girls started chatting about nightgowns, and ran off giggling. Tootsie hated nightgowns. She wanted her two piece teddies. Then she spotted, out of the corner of her eye, two piece purple pajamas with unicorns all over them. 

 "Mother I want these!" Tootsie demanded.

So Tootsie got the new pajamas. She was happy. Until she had to get new pajamas, and came moping down the stairs once again.
