Here's my first chapter.
Chapter 1: Mama and Papa Go on Vacation
It is summer, and Mama and Papa have been busy packing their suitcases for a week. Brother and Sister are curious about why their parents have been packing. Could they have been planning a vacation, and are Mama and Papa going to take the cubs along with them?
"Mama, Papa, are you going on a vacation?" Brother asks.
"Are you going to take us along?" asks Sister.
Mama answers, "Well, cubs. We are going on vacation."
"Mama and I are going on a cruiseship," Papa adds.
"Unfortunately," Mama breaks in, "you cubs can't come with us."
Brother and Sister sigh. "Why not," Sister asks.
"We're going on our third honeymoon," Papa says.
"Another honeymoon?!" Brother and Sister cry out in unison.
"Yep," Mama says.
"But who will take care of us?" Sister asks.
"Maybe Gran?" Brother pipes up.
"No, cubs," Papa answers. "Mrs. Grizzle will be taking care of you for the next five weeks."
"You're going to be gone for five weeks?" Brother asks.
"Don't worry, cubs," Mama says. "Mrs. Grizzle knows you two will have fun while we're gone."
"Besides," Papa adds, "Mrs. Grizzle has a surprise for you cubs when she comes."
"Oh boy," Sister says, sounding a bit uncertain.
The next day, Mama and Papa are all set for their vacation. At about one o'clock, Mrs. Grizzle knocks on the door. Mama and Papa greet her as she comes in. After Mrs. Grizzle says goodbye to Mama and Papa and wishes them a good trip, she goes to her car and brings out a big suitcase full of something. Brother and Sister are curious about what might be in Mrs. Grizzle's suitcase. As soon as Mrs. Grizzle lugs it into the treehouse, she asks the cubs, "Are you ready for my big surprise?"
"Uh, I think so," says Brother shyly.
Mrs. Grizzle opens the case. Inside it, the cubs see that she's packed a bunch of diapers, two baby bottles, rattles, and other baby supplies.
"You cubs are going to be my babies," Mrs. Grizzle says.
"Babies?" Brother and Sister ask in surprise at the same time.
"That's right," Mrs. Grizzle says. "You're going to be my own little bundles of joy."
