Alyssa ~When Toys come Alive
Feb 19th, 2012 by Autumn Sunshine
Did you ever wonder what happened when you fell asleep? What do you think?
Alyssa stayed awake to find out.
Hi again, it’s me Alyssa.
I’m 5 years old and I decided to stay awake and see what it felt like to be awake while the whole house was sleeping. My kitty Cassie was even all cozy curled up on my bed.
I was just about ready to find a book to read when all of a sudden I saw Raggedy Ann and Andy wave to me, they really did! They started to dance, they looked like they were having fun, so I just waved to them and watched. Next my stuffed elephant named Maya, waved her truck at me, and spun around in a big twirly circle and then she started dancing too! Wow, they were having fun, so I decided to just sit back and watch for a little while.
I watched and smiled as my favorite stuffed fluffy white puppy waved a paw at me and looked like she was smiling at me! Could she be smiling? Her name is Sweet Puppy, I got her when I was just a little girl, only 4 years old. Gosh that seems like ages ago. My special favorite Aunt got her for me. Yes, Sweet Puppy joined in the dancing fun, too.
I just smiled and waved to all of them. They were all just twirling and spinning and having a great time. Should I go dance with them? Hmmm, maybe I’ll watcha and see who joins the fun next.
Wow, Mr. Bear, my very, very big stuffed brown bear was next. He seemed a little unsure of what to do. He waved at me and the others, and joined along in the dance.
I do have lots of toys, and maybe some were sleepy that night, only my favorites were awake and had finished their dancing. They all went over to my big pretend kitchen, it’s special and I love it 🙂 . Mommy and Daddy got it for me to pretend to cook. Well my animal friends were in the little kitchen and cooking up a storm, making popcorn. They were being pretty messy.
I thought the food was only pretend, but before I knew it, popcorn was flying all over the place! Yikes, that stuff can really sail. Then they each got a little box of juice and had their snacks. I’m glad they decided to sit at the round table and the chairs, I could watch them way better now, and it looked fun.
I noticed Raggedy Ann and Andy having a popcorn throwing contest. I laughed out loud, Andy was way worse of a thrower than his sister! I thought was good, girls can throw
just as good as boys can, after all.
Mr. Bear finished his snack and he started to clean up, all by himself, no grown ups around so he just must be tidy, I guess. One by one all my animal friends put away their messes, and Mr. Bear ran the little vacuum sweeper. Wow, he is good at that.
I wondered how Mommy and Daddy weren’t waking up by now, but no they didn’t 🙂 . They were missing all the fun!
Maya sent over to where the little piano is and started to play a song. I can’t believe it, she was very good at her music. She was playing a sort of song that I don’t like very much, it’s kind of dorky, called Old McDonald had a farm. Hmmmm, she must like that song. I won’t laugh at her, she is doing her best. I couldn’t tell her to play the music I like to listen to with Mommy and Daddy. Daddy plays his guitar and sings along. It’s my favorite color Pink something, oh right, it’s called Pink Floyd. I remember the name of the song, it reminds me of learning to tell time on my little clock, yes, that’s the name, it’s called Time.
I gotta say, Mommy and Daddy are sleeping through all the fun this time. I was getting sleepy anyway. I just kept watching and listening to the dorky song. I giggled once and
Next morning I woke up, I rubbed my eyes and looked around. The whole room was tidy, and all my animal friends were just sitting around like normal. I wonder….was it just a
Cassie came over and put her paw on my arm, that means she wants something. I looked at Cassie then looked across the room where she was looking. Yep, Cassie spotted something all right. I saw Sweet Puppy, she winked her one eye at me and wagged her tail. Me and Cassie both winked back. It must mean the same thing as it does in kitty talk, it means, I love you. Sweet Puppy gave a little twirl and curled back up like always fast asleep.
I’m staying up tonight to watch again!! Ooops here comes Mommy and Daddy, I won’t tell them, I think this is gonna be me and Cassie’s secret, and also the toys of course!
