“Sissy,” said Mommy Balloon as the Balloon Family were flying through the sky at Storyland. “Where is your ribbon?”
Sissy looked down and she was shocked to find out her ribbon was not there.
“Oh no!” cried Sissy. “My ribbon is gone. Where could it be?”
“Don’t worry,” said Mommy, seeing that Sissy was very upset. “Ribbons can be replaced. Believe it or not, I have lost tons of them.”
“Really,” said Sissy, feeling a bit better.
“Yes,” said Mommy, looking down at her own ribbon and seeing that it was starting to fray. “The wind has torn my ribbon tons of times. My ribbon is in need of being replaced. It is starting to fray.”
“How do we replace our ribbons?” asked Sissy.
“Come with me,” said Mommy. “Let’s go get some new ribbon.”
Mommy took Sissy to an outdoor flea market. Sissy was ecstatic when she saw all the different coloured ribbons.
“I don’t think I have ever seen so many colours,” said Sissy.
Mommy pointed to another rack behind her with even more colours of ribbon. Sissy was in heaven.
“Okay,” said Mommy. “Now, all you have to do is pick out the colour that you like the best.”
“That is going to take some twice,” said Sissy.
“Time is one thing we have lots of,” said Mommy.
“That is true,” said Sissy.
After about an hour, Sissy had picked out two colours. One was a blush pink and the other was a bright burgandy.
“I can’t decide between these two,” said Sissy.
“They are both very pretty,” said Mommy. “Why don’t you get both of them?”
“Could I?” asked Sissy.
“I don’t see why not,” said Mommy, paying for the ribbons.
“Oh those are nice too,” said Sissy, looking at the ribbons Mommy purchased. “Beautiful greens, blues and pinks Very colourful.”
“Daddy and Baby probably need new ribbons too,” said Mommy.
“Yes true,” said Sissy.
