Pippi






Photobucket





I would like you to meet a very special Friend of mine.
 
 
 
 
Photobucket




She has the most lovely red hair and freckles

 sprinkled across her nose.

And she rescued me from a mighty Sea of Mayhem in my

   Doll Room,
with a Happy Attitude even.   







Photobucket


In return, I made her a Birthday Party dress,

per her Instructions,
while she fidgeted impatiently in her Fairy-Travel-Trunk-House.
.


Photobucket


(flocking tights and undies all non-removeable)

The children insisted on naming her Pippi.
She thanked them by dancing her heart out for them
on their Birthdays.


Photobucket


.I think she was pleased with her Dress gift,
but we filled her secret treasure bag full
for good measure.


Photobucket



And we all Prayed she would Never leave.


Photobucket


But late at night, I heard her shining up the handles
 of her Travel Trunk....

Photobucket

She would often pause by the kitchen window listening for Something...or Someone.

Photobucket


The children and I knew Pippi would have to follow her Heart.


Photobucket
And if she has to go to that Voice calling at the Window...

She will have left us with...
The flame from her hair
that renewed the Fires of Inspiration in my Doll Room.
Her exuberant dancing that encouraged us to entirely celebrate
 one another
 without reservation.
And she proved to our own human Pippi child
 (who always has ketchup on her nose)
that being a little different can be a real BLESSING.
We love you, Pippi...
and we are so very Thankful to have known you!

Minuet and Nissi

 



Once Upon A Time, two babies were born

one late at Night

the other in the Morn. 



 



Photobucket



 



A pink New Moon,

Minuet was her name...

the first of her kind,

wearing a Bow as bright as a flame! 



 



Photobucket



 





But as Different as they were,

they were even more Alike.

As they soon would Discover,

when the Hour of Providence would Strike.



 



Photobucket



 

Once in a Blue Moon

 the Golden Hour would allow...



 



Nissi  to follow her daytime  dreams

 all the way to the Stars.

On Bunny Rabbit Ears and Dragonfly Wings.



 



Photobucket



 



It was then that Minuet spotted Nissi,

 and even though she looked rather funny...

 The Moon was determined to capture

 this strange Flying Bunny.



 



Minuet held her breath

('til she began to turn Blue),

tinkled her nursery bells gently

as the Baby nearer flew.



 

Photobucket



  



Nissi came to rest

 upon the New Moon's pink tip.

Minuet began to giggle,

 causing the baby to slip!



  



Photobucket



 



Minuet quickly went into to an Orbit
 to keep the Bunny sound asleep.

Softly humming a Lullaby while moon clouds

tucked in about her small feet.





Photobucket



 

Together they circled every planet they could find.

Two babies Content

of one Heart and one Mind.



 

Photobucket



  



When Nissi awoke she was soundly rested, back in her bed.

The Sun was Arising

and she was ready to be Fed.

While High Above her, was circling a pink New Moon

 happily Orbiting

while humming a Bunny Rabbit tune.



 



Photobucket



 

Two Friends though separated by distance and time,

finally found  perfect Peace together

 within this Fairytale Rhyme.





Photobucket




The (happy) End.



 



Photobucket



 



Minuet and Nissi's story is inspired by a real baby ,

we know very well, who sleeps during the day

and is awake most the night...

and who has yet to meet her Minuet!
