Ryan and Pinkie are Puzzled!

What are you Doing, Ryan?
Reading a Book about Hot Air Balloons, Pinkie.
Would you Like to Help me Put a Puzzle Together?
Sure, Pinkie!  That would be a Fun Thing to Do! 

Mommy taught me to Begin a Puzzle with the Four Corners, Ryan.
Here!  I Found one of the Four Corners, Pinkie!
Daddy Taught me to Keep the Puzzle Picture Close to me
when I Build a Puzzle, Pinkie.
I Found All of the Right Side!
I Found Lots of the Bottom and 
Some of the Top, Pinkie!
We are Doing Very Well Building our Puzzle, Daddy!
Yep!  We have All our Edges Done and
we are Starting on the Middle Pieces.
Hey!  We are Missing a Piece of our Puzzle!!
We can not Finish our Puzzle Unless we Find it!
Mommy Always makes Daddy Look Under Things–
and he Finds Everything There!
–but it’s Not Under this Box…

It Didn’t Fall Down Onto the Floor, Ryan.
We Have to Keep Looking, Pinkie.
Mommy and Daddy Both Say that it is Very Important
to Learn to Finish Whatever we Start.
I’m Puzzled, Pinkie.
Where can our Missing Puzzle Piece be?
Let’s Try Harder, Ryan.
There Must Be Places Where we Haven’t Looked Yet!
Well– it’s Not Under my Cushion, Pinkie!
And it’s Not Under our Puzzle Table, either!
There it is Ryan!!!  
It was Under my Cushion all along!!
We’ve Completed our Puzzle, Daddy!
For a Little While– we were Puzzled by a Puzzle Piece that was Missing–
but we Kept Looking for It and we Finally Found It.
It Feels Satisfying to Find the Missing Puzzle Piece–
and it Really Feels Great to Finish our Colorful Bear Puzzle!
Did You See the Missing Puzzle Piece before Ryan and Pinkie Did?
