Baby Present

Opening presents is wonderful fun.
At Christmas we were given
gel pens, pencil cases, DVD’s, books,
a Cinderella dress, a T-Ball set
and other wonderful toys.

For her birthday Claire was given
a brand new school bag with
Russian dolls painted on it,
an insects book, a threading
bead set, a painting set,
and other wonderful toys.

Wrapping paper. ribbons, bows,
and beautiful cards. It’s so
exciting opening presents.

Auntie Jo looked after us
when we came home fromĀ  school.
Mummy said we could
open her present for our
two day old baby brother.

We tore off the pretty paper,
opened the box – and stared !
What has she done ?! A truck !
“It’s for a boy,” said Auntie Jo.
“It doesn’t do anything !”
“It’s for a toddler,” said Auntie Jo.

Next morning Claire woke early
as usual and found that
pushing a truck across the carpet
is wonderful fun.
Chloe enjoyed it too.
