This Frog Girl has a birthday coming up next week.

She will be 9!

I can’t believe it! 


So anyway

 She told me she has a secret wish for her birthday.

This secret wish involves riding lessons on something big. 

And then, she swore me to secrecy and made me promise I wouldn’t tell anyone.  

Because,  if I told someone – it wouldn’t come true.

So I didn’t 

Because, that’s the way wishes work you know

You can’t tell anyone.

If you do

they won’t come true. 


I may or may not have told her dad.  

And when I did – he said,

“Give it to her.”

So now, we have a secret and we can’t tell her until the big birthday


, it involves learning something big on one of these guys.
