  • Your sister did well in sports?
  • Dad asks you to do a big job that you don’t want to do?
  • Your teacher asks you to tidy up after a messy art lesson?

My Special Person.

It is a girl. She is 70. She has glasses. She moves like me. She wears cool clothes. She has curly hair. Her skin is white.

She’s at our house for two nights. She is the best. She does not work. She walks really slowly. She has an injured leg.

If I saw Barbs today she would say “Hi Sam” and cuddle me and I would say a virtue. Love. I would say “I love you” and she would say “Hi”.
