Haley's Grouchy Birthday Party
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Haley walked into the living room with her head down and her shoulders drooping. "Hi, Mom. Hi, Ashley," she said as she headed for the hallway to her bedroom.
2 Her older sister, Ashley, called out to stop her. "Haley, what's wrong?"
3 Haley stopped and turned around. "Nothing. Why?"
4 Ashley glanced at Mom curiously. Then she turned to Haley. "Because your shoulders are nearly touching the floor!"
5 "Yeah," said Haley, and she turned to walk away again.
6 This time, Mom stopped Haley. "Haley, come here."
7 Haley turned and walked slowly to her mom. "Yes," she said sadly.
8 Mom put a finger under Haley's chin and lifted the young girl's face to hers. "Are you going to tell us what's wrong?"
9 "I don't want to," said Haley as a tear rolled down her cheek.
