Flat Madi came to Columbia, Missouri in a flat, brown envelope.
I opened her up and said, "Hello!" but we were going on a trip down to the Bootheel of Missouri, and so Flat Madi went right back to being folded up, and she was put in a suitcase that was put in a car that headed down to Bernie, Missouri.
When Flat Madi got to Bernie, it rained and rained and rained and rained. There was even a tornado.
Flat Madi was so relieved to get back to Columbia and to get out of the rain that she relaxed outside on the deck. "Ahhhhh," said Flat Madi. "That's better!" She could see a birdhouse with a family of birds in it in the backyard.
Flat Madi was introduced to baby Amelie (who is not even one year old).
Baby Amelie was very curious about Flat Madi, and especially about how she was so flat.
She decided to let Flat Madi play with her toys. Flat Madi drove the push toy ....
Then she read a book ....
And then she was Queen in the land of the giant Legos!
After all of that playing, Flat Madi was worn out! She was ready to hop back in the envelope and go back home.
Bye, Flat Madi! We hope you had fun in Missouri!
