"Your A Big Froggy Now"


The bowl began to rock,
And then the bowl began to tilt.
And then it tipped,
and then it rolled,
and they all tumbled out.
The tad poles were hopping
and jumping,
and croaking.

Someone told me,,,
that tad poles grow up, and turn into FROGS!
But, I knew my tad poles
would always be my little tad poles
forever and ever
but,,,,,, I was so wrong.

Look at this tad pole that grew into a giant frog.
My bedroom is full of croaking frogs!
What's a Tweedles to do?

The croaking is getting louder and louder.
And I must do something --- fast!
I must do something, before my moms find out .
I can't let my moms know, that there are frogs in my bed.
That would never do!

And so to the pond,,,
we tiptoed through the grass.
Big frogs and little frogs
all in a row
we hopped and walked and tiptoed.

"Look at this nice pond water, I said to Splash, the biggest frog of all.
There is a giant lilly pad just for you.

Splash croaked , croaked , and croaked until his voice was hoarse.

and then with a big jump
he leaped onto the lilly pad.

Splash, teetered and twirrled
and then sat and stared at me.
I listened to the croaks as he said over and over.

Come jump

Come jump

Come jump

And so, with a flying hop
I jumped as far as I could,,,,

and I landed right on the giant lilly pad,
right next to Splash.

"I know your afraid, I said to Splash-

You got used to the little tad pole bowl."

"Once I was afraid, it was when I was a tiny baby, long, long ago.

I had a home where I lived with my brothers and sisters.
It was a safe little home
And then one day
my forever moms came
and took me to my forever home.
My moms sang to me everyday,
and now I am not afraid anymore."


Your a big frog now.
This pond is your forever home.
Now its time for you to go jump and splash and croak
with all your friends.
I will come see you everyday-
We will be forever friends.

Nitety nite my friends
love
tweedles

Hi Tweedles! What a sweet story! You were very smart to take all the big and little frogs to the pond. Your moms wouldn't have liked to have all those froggies in your house!

I can't believe you jumped into the pond! You are so brave, little Tweedles. I wish I were brave like you.

Mom heard frogs croaking today while she was hiking. She even saw a baby duck without a mommy! She thinks the frogs are raising the baby but I told her that I need to check it out for myself so maybe she'll take me to see the baby tomorrow. Keep your paws crossed!

It's always hard to grow up - others change and then we change. Never really sure where we are going. Going out there in faith. And there is only one way to live - by leaping - and you did leap Tweedles - good for you.

Wow, you had froggies in your room? In your bed? How cool! It doesn't matter that they're now in their pond -- it is where froggies are supposed to be -- but they will always be your friends and you'll visit them in their new home! You've got your forever home and so do they! And it's not so very far away!

Sequoia & Petunia said...

Your froggy friends must be so glad to have a pond just for them and still so close to you!

Tweedles, sweetie, isn't it fun to watch tadpoles grow into frogs? Isn't it a miracle? I am so happy that you will be there to watch over the frogs to make sure that they have a good summer. Did you name all of them or just a few? You jumped on the lily pad but can you hop like a little frog? Have you tried to croak? Inquiring minds want to know☺

Tweedles, I just love to hear all about your adventures, it's a good thing thatnyou lead all the frogs to the pond before your mommies got home. You are such a good boy for doing that.
Thanks for sharing,

Aww Tweedles how sweet of you, to guide little tadpoles to where they belong. You are such a good dog!

Winston (smilingpug) said...

Oh Tweedles I am certain that the frogs are no longer scared. They have a nice little pug like you that helped them get to their new home and reassure them everything will be ok. Because of you they know they are safe in their new home.

Oh Tweedles!!
What a great rescue!!
Your froggy friends are very happy to have their nice big pond and a cute Tweedles head hovering above peeking in on them from time to time.

Mommy hads a fishy tank when she was a child and it hads underwater froggy's in its and they got really big and would jump out so Mommy and Grandma had to take thems to 'da ponds too.
Maybe's 'dey swims togethers in magical streams and meet ups!!

Hi Tweedles,
How wonderful, your freedom adventure with your little froggies sounds. They are so lucky to have had you to foster them through their tadpolehood. They are going to be magical frogs just from having known you.

You are such a good friend to your froggies. I bet they will go and be happy in the big pond, because you taught them everything they need to know!

With you as a friend Tweeds, those froggies don't even need a pond. The picture of you looking at the froggy in the grass just made my heart melt.

You tell the best stories of all!

It was very sweet of you to take care of them & make sure they made it to that big wonderful pond. Give your mom's a big hug & big hugs & kisses to you angel.

Sandy said...

Hey Little Tweedles...I scoop the little froggies out of the swimming pool here because they fall in somehow and can't get out. I'm glad you were able to get your tadpole grown up and in the big pond. Kisses to you!

Hello my little friend!! I was wondering if during the rush of my week that maybe I missed one of your posts, and I see that I did. This is a very timely story because I heard on the news just yesterday that there is a shortage of frogs, so it's great that you helped these to find their way to where they needed to be, and not in your house! :-)

Manon Doyle said...

Awe.... that was the best story, Tweedles. I love reading your words. Btw.... I also just adore the little widget of you up there. It is soooo cute!!

love,
Otis!!

Oh.... and tell your mom that her comment on my blog today touched my heart!!
