Story of the Bald Frog

Okay - so I go to update my profile now that the wedding is over and I come up with a great question from blogger:

The children are waiting! Please tell them the story about the bald frog with
the wig:

So I write the story and blogger tells me I can only have 160 charactors! So here goes:

Once upon a time there was a bald frog. He was actually a handsome prince who was turned into a frog by an evil witch. He begged for a way to become a man again and after thinking carefully the witch agreed that the only way for him to become a man again was to get someone to give him a wig that fit him properly. Now as you know, there are no wigs available for frogs so the witch thought that he would stay a frog forever and she was happy. It was also a handicap to the frog that he could not talk in anything other than croaks.
A beautiful young girl saw the frog and thought he might be cold with the bald head so she went home and knit him a fun fur hat which turned out more like a wig. When she put it on him, he turned back into a handsome prince. He told he he would grant her every wish and they went off to the yarn shop where he bought her all the yarn she wanted!!!!! The married and lived happily ever after in a castle with many rooms for stash storage.

The moral of the story: Leave it to a knitter to save the day!
