Amos & The Hospital

My name is Amos. My mom shouldn't have complained about being tired. I woke up with croup last night. It was really scary. I couldn't breathe and threw up. My mom took me to the hospital. The doctor was so nice even though he gave me a shot. I had three things of apple juice. We got home at 2 in the morning. My dad was so happy to see me. He said, "I missed you, boy." I slept in their bed. My mom woke up this morning and said a prayer  ..

Amos & The Christmas Program

My name is Amos. I was in a program at my school on Friday. My class was singing Jingle Bells. I have been practicing for weeks. I can't sing but I have been humming it a lot lately and my mom loves to hear me and then she sings it. My mom came to my program. She picked up my sister and two brothers early so they could come too. They sat on the front row. They sang and waved and clapped. My teacher held me in her arms so they could see me. I didn ..

Amos & The Haircut

My name is Amos. I hate getting my haircut. I mean, really hate it. My mom says it makes her very tired. She took me for one today at Shear Pleasure (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Shear-Pleasure-Hair-Styling-Salon/165214840171225). I wore my pajamas and she took off her coat because she said she gets sweaty while trying to hold me still. Well, guess what? I sat by myself today in the booster seat. My mom was so excited. I wasn't exactly good, but  ..

Amos & The Nativity

My name is Amos. This is my mother. Her name is Adrian. She says she is exhausted. I don't know why. All she did was fun stuff last week. She says she'll never get clothes put away again and what about the Christmas cards? I don't care if she does that stuff or not. Neither does daddy. I just want to go outside on the playground. She just wants to lie down beside the camel and Mary and a king. They are very tired too. My mom is crazy ..

Amos and The Talker

My name is Amos. I am a little bit of a dictator. My brother Russell says I'm smarter every day. Yesterday, I got out of my push bike when we were walking downtown and pushed my mom back to the coffee shop. I love their donuts. Today, I gave my mom the remote control and said, Help! She changed the channel and I said NO until she found Curious George. I said Ooh Ooh Ahh Ahh to tell her yes. I used my talker to tell my mom, "You go outside playground I  ..

Amos & The Big Bad Wolf

Dear Blue Cross Blue Shield, My name is Amos and I am three years old. I live in Edenton, North Carolina. Do you know where that is? Do you know who I am? I am thinking you remember my mom. She is the one that called you all summer. I had to watch tv with my brothers and sister while we waited for her to talk to you. Sometimes she would cry. I've never seen her get that mad. She said that she is trying to be a good mama bear. I just wanted ..
