I am Chloe
I am
Crazy as a little girl 
Helpful around the classroom
Loved like a new born baby 
Organised and ready for anything really fast
An Entertainer of little kids

My sister Jacinta
She likes 
Jumping on jumping castles
Being Active by running and going on bike rides 
She’s Clever as a 40 year old
Inventive as a really good scientist 
Naughty because she sneaks stuff at home 
Tall as an umbrella 
And Awesome like a singer

My Mum, Liz
She’s 
Loving as a mother should 
Incredible because she teaches me craft 
Like a Zebra because she is so fast at running 

My Dad, Steve 
He’s
Stinky because he farts 
Thunderous as thunder
More Entertaining than a comedian 
Very full of 
Energy like a little 4 year old

My puppy, Lexie 
She’s 
Little like a tiny mouse 
Excited like a mother seeing her baby for the first time 
Xerothermic 
Impressive because she does a lot of tricks
And Exciting to little people

My sister’s dog, Rosie
She’s
Ready as a race horse
One hundred percent at running fast 
Skilled as a flexible monkey 
Instant as a tiger pouncing on its prey
And Excellent like a movie star
