I’m writing this blog post to tell you the meaning of family and why it’s important. You need a mom and dad to pay the bills and buy the food. You need brothers and sisters to tease and play with.
Mom and dad are the most important because they are the ones to get you in this world. What they do is have sex. When your mom and dad have sex they mix a sperm cell and egg cell to fertilize the egg. That egg keeps dividing into more and more cells to make a baby. Then the baby comes out of the mom’s tummy. That’s when a new baby comes into the world.
It’s also important to have a mom and dad because they can care for you. If someone is going to kill you, you have a mother and father to guard you.
Sisters and brothers are also very important because if you didn’t have them you would be bored. You couldn’t play with anybody exept your friends. It’s always good to have someone to play with when your friends are not there.
Now you know why it’s good to have a family: to care for you and buy your food. Just remember that they are always there for you.
If I could have a brother I would want one. Not to replace my sisters though. He would be an older brother. When I got home from school he could help me with my homework. Not to replace daddy or anything but it would just be cool to have a brother helping. It would also be cool if I could do favors for him. I could even have two fun teasers. Sometimes it’s fun to have someone bugging me around especially if I didn’t have sisters. Maybe him and I could share a room together so we could talk to each other at night. If we could have a dog my brother and I would take care of it together. It would be cool to have a brother.
This morning I was so excited to go to the play of “A Christmas Carol.” My dad asked to chaperon earlier during the month, so he got to. The number one reason he offered to chaperon is to ride on the bus. He hasn’t rode a bus since he was a kid. Three more reasons he offered to chaperon is so he can see Mr. Reinhartsen, spend time with me, and watch the play. When I got to school I couldn’t wait until 9:05 am. That was the time we were supposed to get on the bus. I did the day starter (morning time work) I’m supposed to do in the morning. I waited and kept looking at the clock. I was so excited. Soon they called us to the front doors. I got to see my old friends from my class last year because they are in fifth grade reading. Mr. Reinhartsen wanted all the reading kids to come to “A Christmas Carol”. Suddenly I saw the bus and my dad, so we got on.
While we were on the bus I taught my dad Concentration 64, Tom Boy, (those are hand shakes) and talked to him.
When we got there we sat in comfy seats. Before we watched the play we had to sing “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. They divided the audience into twelve groups, one for each day. When it was our turn we had to stand and sing our part and do our hand motions. It was fun. Finally we started watching the play. It was really good. Some parts were so scary I gasped! It was about a grouchy man named Ebenezer Scrooge who hated people and Christmas so he was haunted by three spirits. At the very end he had a happy life and he was nice to people. It was the best play I’ve seen in a long time. After the first act we got to eat a donut.
On the bus ride home my dad and I did a debate about god. When we got to C.K. Burns, I said good-bye to daddy and went inside. Since we were late for the regular lunch time, Mrs. Walton said we could eat lunch in the classroom while we work. We ate a pasta kind of stuff, strawberry juice with cut up strawberries, bread, and chocolate milk.
When we got home there were fresh-baked cupcakes on the counter. Mommy told us that we could decorate them. It was fun. I did cool designs.
That was my day.
