Tree House...of sorts.

There once were two little girls who lived in a beautiful house with a very big yard. At the very back of the yard was a circle of 5 banana trees which offered lovely shade. The little girls desperatly wanted to live underneath the banana trees and begged their mother to make them a house. A house where they could host tea parties for all their stuffed and cuddly friends.


Their mother (who secretly loved the idea of playing house under the banana trees) built them a beautiful Girls Only Club House...the only boys allowed were, of course, Daddy and Winnie the Pooh. There were pink bed sheets strung over thick string for a cool, shady roof. A soft colorful quilt as a rug, bright blue throw pillows, and a host of special friends. Celebrity friends such as Barny, Tigger, and the Octopus from Baby Einstein.

The little girls played in this special house for a long time, sipping pretend tea, opening the pretend door for pretend guests, and singing songs.

Their mother played too. And she had a great time on that hot, sticky afternoon. Who knew banana trees could be so much fun?
