When Kelly got up in the morning, she knew she had to have a shower and put on her school uniform before she went downstairs to have breakfast. After breakfast, she needed to brush her teeth and then she could watch cartoons until it was time for her to put her shoes on and go to school.
Kelly ate her breakfast and then put the TV on.
‘Kelly,’ her mum said. ‘Have you brushed your teeth?’
Kelly sighed ‘No, mum. Can I just watch this first?’
‘No, Kelly, go and brush your teeth.’
Kelly went upstairs and went into the bathroom. Her brother had left his wet towel right in the middle of the floor. Kelly stepped on it and her sock got all wet.
‘Ewwww! Stephen! You’ve left your towel on the floor again and my sock is all wet! Why don’t you ever pick up your towel?’
‘Sorry, Kelly.’ He said.
‘Don’t do it again!’
Kelly brushed her teeth and then went back downstairs to watch TV.
The next morning, Kelly got up and had her shower. She put on her school uniform, went downstairs and turned the TV on.
‘Kelly’ her mum said ‘Have you had your breakfast?’
‘No mum,’ Kelly sighed. ‘Can I watch TV while I eat?’
‘No Kelly. You watch TV after you’ve brushed your teeth.’
Kelly turned off the TV, got her breakfast and then went upstairs to brush her teeth. She stepped on Stephen’s wet towel and her sock got all wet.
‘Ewww! Stephen!’ She shouted. Kelly was super mad now because her sock was all wet again. ‘Stephen why don’t you ever do what you are meant to do! I am going to throw your towel out of the window!’
‘Don’t do that! I’m sorry, I just forget’
Kelly brushed her teeth and went downstairs to watch TV.
The next morning, Kelly got up and had her shower. She put on her school uniform, went downstairs and got her breakfast. While she was waiting for her toast to cook, she turned the TV on.
‘Kelly, your toast is going to burn! What are you doing?’
‘Sorry mum!’ Kelly said, running into the kitchen to rescue her toast.
‘Were you watching TV?’
‘Yes, I’m sorry.’
‘Don’t do it again, Kelly.’ Her mum said.
Kelly ate her breakfast and then went upstairs to brush her teeth. She looked at the floor and saw that Stephen’s towel was on the floor. She picked it up and stood on the side of the bath, she opened the window and then threw the towel out of the window.
Kelly brushed her teeth and then went downstairs to watch TV.
‘Where’s my towel? Mum, have you seen my towel?’ Stephen shouted from upstairs.
‘Where did you leave it?’
‘I think I left it in the bathroom, I was just going to put it away.’
‘You should have put it away before,’ shouted Kelly.
Stephen ran downstairs.
‘What have you done to my towel?’
‘I put it outside to dry.’
Kelly laughed as Stephen ran outside to get his towel.
‘That wasn’t very kind, Kelly.’
‘He should do what he is meant to do. It’s annoying me that I have to tell him every day.’
‘Kelly, when are you meant to watch TV?’
‘After I brush my teeth’
‘How often do I have to tell you to brush your teeth or to eat your breakfast while you’re watching TV?’
Kelly didn’t answer.
‘Should I stop you watching TV in the morning?’
‘No, I promise I’ll do better.’
‘You need to try to forgive your brother more. Like I forgive you.’
