My name is Amos.
Today has been a busy day.
We opened presents and went to the beach and went swimming.
I even took a nap.
Tonight we went to the playground.
In case anyone is wondering, I adore the playground.
I practiced going across the drawbridge over and over again.
I had trouble, but I never gave up.
Amos is not a quitter, my mom said.
She made my brothers and sisters stop trying to help me.
He's a big boy now, she reminded them.
She's awfully proud of me.
Hooray, she said, when I did it.
I'm proud of me, too.
Now, if only I would wear my glasses, she said with a big sigh.
It's been a good Christmas.
