Orthodontist visit!

Today I went to the orthodontist and I was scared, but I went.  They put stuff in my mouth, stretched my mouth and took a photo of my teeth.  It felt all stretchy and sore.  They rubbed creamy stuff on my mouth and it tasted blugh.    The x-ray made me feel a bit claustrophobic and I was scared and my heart was beating very fast.  I felt like I wanted to leave and not go into another machine.  But I stayed calm.  It was very nice that the lady explained everything - like she told me exactly what the machine was going to do when it took an x-ray of my teeth.  The lady explaining to me made me feel better.  Today I learnt that even when I am scared it is better to stay calm because everything turned out ok.

Basotho Hat

A few months ago I went up Sani Pass to Lesotho and bought a hat in Lesotho.

A few weeks ago I was asked to lend my Basotho hat to someone who wanted to use it in their school play. I was very worried that they wouldn't give it back. At first I didn't want to lend it to them, but Mum and Dad spoke to me and said it would be ok and that it would be looked after and given back to me. I didn't believe them.

The hat was given back to me and I have learned to believe Mum and Dad and not to worry and that they looked after my hat.

Asking for help

Last weekend we were invited to a friend's house for a braai.  I didn't really want to go because I had my cousin to sleep over.  But I went anyway and tried to play cricket with the other children.  One of the boys was not very nice to me.  He wouldn't let me come into the TV room where everyone was playing and he laughed at me, and shone a torch in my eye.  When I told him he was being nasty to me he said he didn't care.  I felt very, very cross and frustrated but I went and asked my Mum for help and I didn't explode.  The boy's mum spoke to him and he still didn't stop so I told him he was not very nice.  After a while he stopped and was nicer to me, and then I felt like I wanted to say sorry for my unkind words.  Today I have learnt not to explode when I am cross and rather ask Mum for help.

Flexible in winter!

Today it was very, very cold and I had to wear a tracksuit and shoes and socks to school and I was very flexible because I didn't want to wear either of them.  Today I have learnt to be flexible about wearing different things that maybe sometimes are uncomfortable.  I learnt that they weren't actually that uncomfortable after all!  I would still prefer to wear my sandals and shorts to school but I know that when it's cold outside I'll be able to wear my tracksuit anyway!
