Three balloons: daddy balloon, mummy balloon and baby balloon.
Daddy balloon says to baby balloon, “look son, you are getting too big to sleep with mummy and daddy, you’ll have to sleep in your own bed now”.
Baby balloon protests, “but I like sleeping with you and mummy”.
“No, you aren’t sleeping with us anymore!” says daddy balloon.
“Okay” says baby balloon sadly.
Early the following morning baby balloon wakes up and decides to climb into bed with mummy and daddy.
He finds there is no room, so he unties his dads knot and lets out some air, and ties him up again.
Still no room, so he unties his mummy’s knot, also lets some air out and ties her up again.
He still can’t get in, so he unties his own knot, lets out some air, and ties himself up again, he finally has enough room and snuggles down with mummy and daddy.
The next day they all wake up and daddy balloon is really angry. He said
“Son, I am really disappointed with you, I said you couldn’t sleep with us anymore. Now, you’ve let me down, you’ve let your mummy down and you’ve let yourself down too!”
I have Paddy to thank for this little tickle.
