Last minute troubles

Here comes trouble. Just as they were about to sleep, Kristine blurted out to Mommy that she needs to tell a story in front of the class tomorrow. Which is fine, IF she had told us before the School Holiday started. Now, minutes to bedtime, it is a disaster....

She was trying to remember the story word for word and forgot a lot of things, such as the plot of the story and also, the voice changing. So, I helped her approach in another way, which is to make her understand the story and then let her tell it in her own way. I just hope she remembers all this in the morning. Sigh.

And so, Mommy made Kristine read and
then remember the story while I tried to
help her make the presentation or in this
case, delivery, much livelier.
