Give me some cake, I'll eat it too!

Sitting under a mushroom Gretta from Gothere felt her nose start to twitch, then her tummy started to grumble, and then it let out a loud moan...Gretta hiccuped and rubbed her tummy with her paw. Her nap had been sweet but her nose was in a twitch and she was feeling a bit hungry and lite headed. A piece of cake must be found and she had heard word from a robin that there was a tea party down the road. Bebe was our hostess with the cutest dose of the mostess...Gretta snapped her seat belt in her poot-scoot and she was off to take a piece of the cake! That is just what she needed and now a spot of tea was in order. Where was the hot water? Gretta simply decided to open the Sleepytime tea and crawl in the teacup and wait for her friends. She had nothing to complain about...the cake was ate. She felt a twang of guilt for eating the whole cake. She could hear her mama Gretel from Gothere telling her it was not wise to stuff a hedgehog.
Just as she was going off into slumber land she could smell the sweet smell of frosted strawberries. Over tipped the teacup as she justified her behavior...strawberries were natural, they were good for hedgehogs, diet food indeed...

Oh Gretta a hedgehog after my own heart - nibbling on a whole cake. Tea is such a good idea! And yes strawberries are so healthy...

Dear Gretta,

What can I say? But anyone who dives face first into a cake, drinks tea and eats sugared strawberries just before going to bed is A-OK with me.

However, do you get any nightmares after eating all that sugar? I find that if I eat too much sugar before bed, I end up with the most wicked dreams -- being chased by cats, snatched up by eagles, and gobbled up by foxes. Brrrrr! Gives me the willies just thinking about it.

But for all those who don't get nightmares, well then,

"Let them eat cake."
