A note from jameela
I am Jameela Hena .
I am a big girl , but my family don’t think that . I will say you one story about it .
“ Jameela , brush your hair “
My father said .
“ No I won’t “, I replied .
“ C’mon brush you hair “ my father said again .
“ I am a big girl “
I Screamed back .
“ Well your friends will laugh at you in school “ .
Of course she was the laughing stock in school that day .
After school my mother questioned ,
“ What did you learn in school , my darling ? “ .
“ Just some biography “ I sighed.
“ I think you have some homework , Jameela “, my mother exclaimed .
“ But big girls don’t do homework “ I corrected her .
At dinner ,
“ It’s Dinner Time “, My sister announced proudly ,
“Lettuce , cucumber is on the menu ,next for… “
“ Big girls don’t eat vegetables “ I interupted .
The next day at diaper changingtime my baby smiled ,
“ Can you change my diaper ? “
I stared crossly and grinned back ,
“ Big girls don’t change diapers for babies “ .
My family was really tired of this . On a Saturday , My cousin said “ Let’s eat something “
“ What is it ? “ I asked curiously.
“ It is marshmallows and sour candies “,
she said with a smug .
“ Big girls don’t…um..i meanbig girl do eat candies “ I said .
My knees felt all wobbly like jelly !
“ Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ! “ my family roared in laughter.
