Goal

Let’s start the lesson with some reading. You can read it on your own or play the audio and follow along.

Once you have finished, you can go to the next step.


The Diary of a Girl

Matthew: Look how beautiful she is, isn’t she just adorable. Absolutely gorgeous and I am so proud!  Look at the way she is smiling at us.

Jane: I think this is her first true smile Matt, she’s beginning to  recognise someone really special. She looks just like you when you smile. I can’t stop looking at those dimples, It must run in the family. 

Matthew: Let me take her in my arms and cuddle her. Oh,Jane it looks like she is about to start crying.. what have I done. She has such an insatiable appetite, do you think she is hungry?

Jane: She can’t be hungry because I fed her less than an hour ago. Here, let me take her. She might need to burp. Let me rub her back gently and see if that helps.

Matthew: Um, I think I can smell something other than ‘air bubbles’ Jane – and it’s not a pleasant smell.

Jane: Yes, I think I know what you mean. She can’t be very happy about having a dirty nappy, so I must change her now. Matthew can you help me please?

Matthew: This is not the best part of being a dad, but I will try to make it a magical moment for our little one. 

Jane: You could softly sing our nursery rhyme, ‘The wheels on the bus’ song.

Matthew: Let me give it a try. “The wheels on the bus go round and round. Round and round. Round and round…” It’s working, Jane. Look at how she is kicking her little legs and staring at you with those soft blue eyes. She’s closing them now…

Jane: She must be a little sleepy. It might be time for her nap. Matthew, I think your phone’s ringing.

Matthew: Yes, it might be from work. We are busy with a big contract and they said that they would call me later today.

Jane: Ok, thanks for your help honey. By the way, I think I might have opened the last package of nappies. Could you stop on your way back home and buy some more please?
