Not Little Red Riding Toddler

Little_Red_Riding_Hood_-_J._W._Smith Once upon a time, there was a little toddler, who did not live in a village by a forest. She never wore a red riding cloak (though she sometimes wore a bumble bee outfit), and no one called her Little Red Riding Toddler.

One day, Not Little Red Riding Toddler said, ‘I’m going to see my grandma.’ So she packed an imaginary picnic to take to Grandma’s house, and didn’t put on a red cloak. Silly Mummy warned her not to dawdle on her way: dangerous babies lurked in the living room.

So Not Little Red Riding Toddler set out to visit Grandma. On her journey, she came across some beautiful pull along turtles and a tea set. She promptly forgot Silly Mummy’s warning, and stopped to sniff the turtles and pick a few tea cups. She did not notice when a shadowy Silly Daddy approached and snuck onto the sofa.

Silly Daddy was not interested in the slightest to hear that Not Little Red Riding Toddler was going to see her grandma. He gobbled up something more likely to fall into the category of ‘leftovers’ than ‘Grandma’, before making minimal (no) effort to dress as Grandma.

Not Little Red Riding Toddler arrived in front of Silly Daddy. Silly Daddy continued to devote his best efforts to not looking like Grandma. Without needing to question Silly Daddy’s eyes, ears or teeth, Not Little Red Riding Toddler declared, ‘You’re not Grandma!’

Not Little Red Riding Toddler was nothing if not persistent. She was visiting Grandma. She had not visited Grandma. She announced again, ‘I’m going to see my grandma.’

Presently, Not Little Red Riding Toddler reappeared in front of Silly Daddy, who was still showing remarkably little interest in pretending to be Grandma. Not Little Red Riding Toddler was once again able to see right through Silly Daddy’s complete lack of disguise: ‘You’re not Grandma!’ Not Little Red Riding Toddler knew who Silly Daddy was really: ‘You’re the big bad wolf. Roar!’

So, in something of a role reversal, Not Little Red Riding Toddler roared at the big bad wolf, who disappointingly failed to either chase or attempt to eat anyone. Nonetheless, The Baby Woodcutter appeared at that moment, brandishing a toy remote control at the Silly Daddy Wolf, just in case. The Silly Daddy Wolf situation under control, Not Little Red Riding Goldfish Toddler announced, yet again, ‘I’m going to see my grandma!’

Later, Not Little Red Riding Toddler returned to Silly Mummy, where she declared that she was actually Peppa Pig (of course), and was just…off to see her grandma.

And they all lived repetitively ever after.

    It sounds like the Toddler has inherited your imaginary packing skills. I’m sure they will come in imaginarily useful in later life. Loved this; perhaps the Big Bad Wolf had only just eaten Grandma and was letting his dinner digest. #brilliantblogposts

  3. Ahh I do love the world of kids imaginations. Zach is really just starting his and it is brilliant. His latest thing is pretending to read everything. He can’t read because he’s only three but he picks something up and makes up what it says hehe! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

    Hi me again. Thanks for linking this amazing post up to #fbfriday. Have loved reading all your creative and brilliantly written entries over the last 14 weeks so glad you took part!

  5. Love this brilliant story of Not Little Red Riding Toddler on her way to not visit Grandma. Silly Daddy didn’t seem to be doing such a good job of living up to his part though – glad the Toddler understood that there needed to be a Big Bad Wolf and show Silly Daddy how the Big Bad Wolf was supposed to behave. Thank you for linking up to #ftmob 🙂
