Looking after a baby
Hello, I’m Pauline’s baby-sitter. Pauline is one year old and today is my first day with her, that’s why I’m very nervous. Her parents left home about one hour ago. They are having lunch with some friends of theirs. Before leaving they told me to give the baby her bottle every four hours. They also asked me to change her nappies when necessary and not to forget the baby lotion and the baby powder. They told me not to answer the phone, not to open the door to unknown people and to tidy up the baby’s rattles, bibs and toys. Besides, they told me not to let her cry and they asked me to give her, her dummy if she started crying when waking up. Her parents left me a telephone number in case something wrong happened.

Maybe they know my boyfriend lives in Canada.

Setting off for Camp
Here I am, in the summer camp! Every year in August I come to this summer camp in Italy. This is my fifth year. It’s only a fifteen days’ camp, but I enjoy it a lot. Today is my first day and I’m adjusting my tent’s elastic strainer. Some of my friends are inflating the air mattresses and others are arranging the camping equipment according to its use. For instance, Peter is tidying up the cooking set: coffeepots, frying pans, plates, etc. John is checking the lanterns and camp stoves. And Betty is placing the shovels and other tools in the wagon tent. But, where is Betty? Is she putting everything in order or not? No, she is not placing the tools. And, where is Patty? Isn’t she setting our backpacks and sleeping bags in order? No, she isn’t. Patty and Betty are resting together. They’re talking about their things. We are working a lot, but we are enjoying ourselves, too. And our monitors are helping us in everything.
