Mikey Two Eggs
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     Hi! My name is Beth. I would like to tell you a story about my little brother. He is four years old. His name is Michael Edward Peterson. We call him Mikey. Well, anyway, here is the story.
 
2     Last Tuesday was my birthday. It was my sixteenth birthday. It was a very special day for me. My father and mother had planned a big party for me. Everyone was busy decorating the family room. Mikey is too little to do much. We let him pick up the things we dropped. No one noticed when Mikey left the room. We were too busy.
 
3     We didn't know it then, but Mikey had gone to the kitchen. He had decided to make a cake for me. I love my little brother. He is such a sweetheart!
 
4     First, Mikey opened the cupboard. He found a box of cake mix. He looked at the pictures on the back of the box. He could read some words. Some were too hard for him. He saw a picture of a bowl, a spoon, milk, and two eggs.
 
5     Mikey went to the refrigerator. He opened the door. He got out a gallon of milk and some eggs. He put them on the counter by the sink. He got a bowl and a spoon. He put them by the eggs and milk.
 
6     The counter was too high for Mikey. He got a chair to stand on. He climbed up on the chair. He looked at the box again. The picture showed someone pouring the cake mix in a bowl. He did that. He only got a little bit of the cake mix on the microwave. A little bit went in the toaster, too.
 
7     The next picture showed someone breaking the eggs into a cup. Mikey got down off the chair. He could not find a cup. He got a glass for the eggs. He climbed back up on the chair.
 
8     Mikey broke one egg on the counter. The egg came out of the shell onto the counter. Some of it got under the coffeemaker. Some of it went under the blender. Mikey tried again. He hit two eggs together over the glass. One egg broke and fell into the glass! He broke another egg. Most of it went in the glass. Some of it fell on the floor.
 
9     Mikey climbed down off his chair. He scooped up the egg on the floor in a spoon. He climbed back up on the chair. He put the spoon in the glass. He stirred the eggs all up. There were only two or three small pieces of shell in the glass.
