Alma The Super Hero

Alma stood up on the bed and started jumping.

“I is Alma and I is a super star! And today… I is Alma and I is a super hero! I may saves da Honey Bees or maybe… I can gets toilet paper back on da shelves! Dere’s so many things dat I could do… I think I’ll start by…”

I interrupted her… “I have an idea of where to start, Alma.”

She stopped jumping and looked at me contently. “You do, Mommy?,” she asked.

“Oh, yes…” I said… “Super heroes keep their rooms nice and tidy! You could clean your room today.”

“Mommy, didn’t you hear me?! I. Is. Alma. And I is. A. Super star. And super stars not have to clean their rooms! I is only pretending to be a super hero! Duh!”

Alma saves the world.

Alma & The Easter Bunny

The night before Easter, Alma was so excited that she just couldn’t sleep. The Easter Bunny would be here in no time at all, and if she could just stay awake long enough… Maybe she’d catch a glimpse of him.

But around 2:00 am, her eyes grew too heavy. Alma fell asleep, and missed the Easter Bunny.

The next morning, Alma awoke with a jolt!
Had the Easter Bunny come?!

To her surprise, there sat an Easter basket.

“MOMMY! Wook! Da Easter bunny DID come, and he left a basket as big as I is!”

Alma Homeschools

“MOMMY!,” Alma yelled as she stood up in her chair, “NO talking in class!”

“Alma…”

“It’s MISS ALMA to you, Mommy! Today I is da teacher! I is going to learn you something today!”

She handed me a stack of paper…

“What’s this?,” I asked.

“Dis is your work for today. What you nots finish now… You does for homework!”

I looked at the papers… “Alma… This is YOUR homework.”

Alma handed me a pencil, and started to run upstairs…

“ALMA LOUISE!”

“It’s MISS ALMA, MOMMY!”

“Okay, MISS ALMA… Where are you going?!”

“I not has school today. I is da teacher. You is da student. You does da work, and I plays wiff my toys!”

Alma Mows The Yard

“MOMMY! MOM….MMMYY!! Come here!!”

“Okay, Alma, I’m coming!”

I stopped gardening, and stood up and brushed off my hands.

“What is it?,” I asked.

“My popper is broken,” said Alma.

“What do you mean?”

She pushed the popper over the grass.

Pop…Pop…Pop…

“See… it’s broken.”

“I hear it popping. It’s not broken,” I insisted.

“Yes it is, Mommy! It is broken.”

She ran the popper over the grass again.

Pop…Pop…Pop…

“See!!!! When Grumpy pushes his popper over the grass… It pops it down!”

I tried to hold back my laughter as she was very serious.

“Oh… Are you trying to mow the grass?”

“No, Mommy. Not mow. What is mow? I is trying to pop the yard like my Grumpy does!” 😂😂😂😂

Alma Goes To The Grocery Store

The stores are out of everything. Paper towels and toilet paper…Pasta and canned goods…

But Alma found Jelly beans and Mac and Cheese… So she filled the cart.

“Groceries and more groceries…Only the necessities,” Alma smirked.

“Mommy says we won’t be coming out for a while, and everything is closing. She said there is a p-a-n-d-e-m-i-c…Whatever dat is.”

“She’s seemed rather worried over the past few days. She’s always telling me to wash my hands, and she says I is not done until I sings “Happy Birthday” twice, and it’s not even my birthday!”

“She said this is because of Corona… But I doesn’t even drinks beer!”

A NOTE FROM ADVENTURES WITH ALMA: Be safe and remember to wash your hands. ❤️
