My brother Jimmy loves balls!

I have a younger brother. He is 4 years old. He loves to play with balls. My mum bought two new balls for us.

-” I want that ball.” Said Jimmy.

-” Which one?”

-” The white and black one?” I asked.

-” No, the blue and yellow one. That’s the one I want.” Said Jimmy.

-” Ok, you can have it.” I said.

He has some balls in a basket next to his bed. They are in a different sizes and different colors.

-” I don’t have any pink balls.” Said Jimmy. “You have a big pink ball in your room. I want your ball” Said Jimmy.

-” But that ball is mine. You cannot have it.” I said.

Jimmy started crying and ran to mom.

-” Mommy, Mommy!” Said Jimmy.

-” Yes Jimmy? What’s wrong?” Said mom.

-” I want that big pink ball and my brother won’t give it to me!” Said Jimmy.

Mom sat both Jimmy and I down and said:

-” You two are brothers. You should help one another! You should share your toys with each other.”

so I got up and brought my pink ball and handed it to Jimmy! But Jimmy decided to play with me. So we went to the yard and started playing together!
