I need help glossing!!

I have to gloss the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie," so that I can sign it to my professor for a grade.
I asked my professor for help, as my ASL 3 teacher has not taught us how to gloss yet due to the pandemic, and he translated/ glossed the first sentence in ASL for me. However, I cannot figure out how to gloss the rest of the book correctly.
First sentence in English: if you give a mouse a cookie, he is going to ask for a glass of milk.
First sentence in ASL: See - WHAT (eye brows down) - mouse- Suppose - Do What - (Eye brows down) -ask (direct) -milk - CLC: glass. WILL
The rest of the book in English is
"When you give him the milk, he'll probably ask you for a straw.
When he's finished, he'll ask you for a napkin.
Then he'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache.
When he looks in the mirror, he might notice his hair needs a trim.
So he'll probably ask for a pair of nail scissors.
When he's finished giving himself a trim, he'll want a broom to sweep it up.
He'll start sweeping.
He might get carried away and sweep every room in the house.
He may even end up washing the floors as well!
When he's done, he'll probably want to take a nap.
You'll have to fix up a little box for him with a blanket and a pillow.
He'll crawl in, make himself comfortable and fluff the pillow a few times.
He'll probably ask you to read him a story.
So you'll read to him from one of your books, and he'll ask to see the pictures.
When he looks at the pictures, he'll get so excited he'll want to sign his name with a pen.
Then he'll want to hang his picture on your refrigerator.
Which means he'll need Scotch tape.
He'll hang up his drawing and stand back to look at it.
Looking at the refrigerator will remind him that he's thirsty.
So... he'll ask for a glass of milk.
And chances are if he asks you for a glass of milk, he's going to want a cookie to go with it'
If anyone could help me gloss a few sentences or explain how to gloss/ translate I would be SO thankful!!
