Hi guys, Amya here. So, it’s Christmas time, one of my favorite times of year! It’s all about family, friends, and of course of presents! One thing I like most is all the fun activities I get to do.

I’ve been telling my mommy I wanted to be in the Nutcracker and she kept saying I had to practice. I used to go to ballet class but I wanted a break. My mommy tried to take me again but I didn’t want to go. I still wanted to be in the Nutcracker. She said that if I wanted to participate I had to do the work like everyone else. But I didn’t. I didn’t want to do that. I just wanted to go and perform. Guess what? It didn’t happen. I did not get to be in the Nutcracker! I was so sad. I really wanted to do it but I didn’t want to do the work.

My mommy took me on a mommy-daughter date to watch the Nutcracker performance. It was AMAZING! I couldn’t believe I missed out, but you know what? It won’t happen again. I’ll be in the Nutcracker next year. I’m going to do the work. Ok, bye.
