When I grow up.....???
When I grow up...I hope I remember all the rules mommy and daddy keep telling me and my sister...seems now that I am in school there are so many things to learn and it just makes my stomach hurt sometimes.
The grown up people sure want us to learn a lot really fast.
...Please-Thank You- Yes Mam-Yes Sir-Speak when spoken to-Sit straight- Children are meant to be seen and not heard-chew all your food-eat it all gone, there are many people who don't have food-eat everything on your plate-don't talk with your food in your mouth-and they go on some more, but now I can't think of anymore...
We get to buy new shoes on Saturday..and they have this funny machine that takes a picture of your feet in the shoes..it only shows your bones though, and that is so mommy can see if the new shoes fit well. It doesn't hurt or anything, but I was afraid the first time...and you have to hold very still too.
My sister kept moving her feet and so they had to take the picture over two times...mommy was getting upset...
So anyways after we eat our dinner, we have to ask to be excused and pick our plates up...sometimes we hide food we don't like underneath and daddy gets mad. I wonder why they give us food we don't like? And why they put so much on the plate and I get full, but they still say "eat everything" or no desert. I always have room though for desert...
After we are done me and my sister have to sweep the kitchen floor and help dry the dishes, but daddy goes in the frontroom and listens to the radio and smokes a funny thing called a cigar. I don't like the smell from that but he thinks it is very nice.
Anyways I hope I can remember all the Manners we are learning and I will have to teach them to my children, I guess. But for now is just me and my sister and we are doing good.
