“Time to get up,” Baby Jaimie’s mother sang as she came in the room and opened the curtains.
Baby Jaimie was hiding under the covers as she usually did, but this morning she was excited to get to school, so she threw the covers off right away. As quickly as she’d done that she pulled them right back up again. It was cold.
“Come on,” her mother prompted. “Did you forget what day it was? Derek is coming to your classroom today.”
Baby Jaimie stuck her head out from under the covers, “No, I didn't forget, but it's too cold to get up. Do you think Mrs. Smith will let Derek come to my classroom on a day when it's warmer?”
Baby Jaimie's mother giggled as she replied, “It won't be warm again for another few months. It's almost winter. Come on, let's get dressed quickly, so you'll feel warmer.”
After Baby Jaimie got dressed she and her mother went into the kitchen where her sister, Kelly and father were already having breakfast.
“Don't you look nice this morning,” her father said as Baby Jaimie pulled up to the table.
“That's because her boyfriend is going to be in her classroom today,” Kelly remarked.
“Her boyfriend? Just who is this boy?” Baby Jaimie's father teased.
“I do not have a boyfriend!” Baby Jaimie exclaimed. “Derek is just my friend.”
“Sure he is,” Kelly taunted.
“That's enough, Kelly. Eat your breakfast it's getting late,” her mother said firmly.
