Little Michael

Hello future readers,

On Saturday, Sunny and I were out playing in front of my house with her Barbie Camper. I was Barbie and she was Ken. I don't have any groovy accessories for my Barbies like campers and houses and things, so I really like it when my friends share theirs with me.



I looked up and saw Danny on his skateboard and another little boy I had never seen before riding on a tricycle.



So Danny said hi to us and introduced us to his 5-year-old cousin Michael who was visiting from San Diego.



Aww...I thought Michael was a cute little guy. He has this birthmark on his face that kinda made him look like he had a runny nose. Except for his reddish-brown hair, I thought he looked just like Danny.



We stood up, shook Michael's hand and introduced ourselves. I told him that I really liked his tricycle. It looked like the same trike I had when I was little. He just giggled and said thank you.



He asked me if I wanted to ride his tricycle. *giggle* I told him I was too big, but I could stand on the back and hang on. Michael clapped his hands and jumped on his tricycle, telling me that he drank all of his milk this morning, so he was strong enough to give me a ride! Haha!


Well, he wasn't as strong as he thought, so I gave him a little help. Sunny showed Danny her camper. Danny thought it looked a lot like the camper he has for his action guys.



Anyway, Danny asked us if we wanted to ride to the playground, but we told him it was too hot. I wondered where Kyle and Jason were. Danny said that Jason was on a camping trip with his dad, and that Kyle was at the community center taking a Karate class. Poor Danny. I knew he had Michael visiting, but I guess he wanted someone his own age to play with, and he was kinda missing Kyle and Jason. Then he asked if we wanted to come to his house and see his new Hot Wheels set. Sunny and I knew that Danny had gotten used to having guys around and felt bad that his buddies weren't there. So even though we're not really into Hot Wheels, we agreed to go look at them.

He had them set up downstairs in his basement rec room. I think if I were a boy, I would like this set-up. It had a Loop-Da-Loop and a finish line with flags.  He also had a neat carrying case shaped like a wheel.


Danny even had a cool Superman car. Michael held up an Oscar Meyer Wienermobile and said proudly "This is my car, Julie." Danny reminded him that it was his car and he was just letting Michael use it. Then Michael started singing the words to the Oscar Meyer Wiener commercial. Sunny and I thought it was cute, but I could see Danny rolling his eyes.









Just then, Danny's mom came downstairs with a plate of Oreo cookies. She set the plate down next to Michael. He said, "Oh boy, COOKIES!", and grabbed one. Mrs. Campbell reminded him that he had to share with all of us. So he asked me and Sunny if we'd like a cookie. Awww!







So then Danny asks, "Hey, what about me? Aren't you gonna ask if I want a cookie?" Michael told him, "I don't have to ask you, silly! You live here!" We all busted out laughing!



We had a good time, eating cookies, telling jokes and playing with Danny's cars. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a little brother or sister? Would I think they were cute, like Michael? Or would I think they were a pain when they got into my stuff, and tattled on me to my mom? A little of both, I guess. I'll probably never know. But I was glad Michael came to visit. I hope he'll be a Springfield for a while.



Until next time, future readers,
Your friend,
Julie Newman

  1. Aww! Michael is such a cute little kid! I hope he stays around in Springfield for a while. :)
    You and Sunny are such good friends, going to Danny's house and checking out his Hot Wheels stuff, even though you aren't really into it.
    People still enjoy Oreo cookies nowadays, too, but in 2015, they come in lots of different flavors, not just chocolate. They have vanilla, mint, and even a s'mores kind!

  2. Yeah, Michael is a cutie, but I don't think Danny thinks so. I think he's kinda annoyed that he's gonna have to play with Michael and look after him while he's visiting.

    They have flavored Oreos in the future? Wow!

  3. Michael is such a cutie, even if Danny doesn't think so! Love that he knew the words to the Oscar Meyer song too, one of my nephews was like that when he was little, I think he knew the song to every commercial. I love Danny's Hot Wheels, I had one like that when I was little.

    1. Hehe! I used to do that, too. When I was 3, I would stand in the supermarket, and sing the commercials of the stuff I saw on the shelves! I'd never do that now, though. I'd be too embarrassed!

  4. Michael is s cute. Looks like you and Sunny had a lot of fun playing with him.

    So cool that you play with Barbies. My sisters and I love playing Barbies together.

    Thanks for telling us about your day.

    2. Fun. My friend, Samantha, told me about your time capsule. She had commented a few times before.

      What do you like doing in the summer? My sister and I are in A Midsummer Night's Dream, a play by Shakespeare. We have camp all week. It is a lot of fun. Do you go to any camps?

    3. Oh I see. I love summer, b/c as long as I keep my room clean and eat all my veggies, and take care of my dog, I can do almost whatever I want; ride my bike, play outside, go to the record store or to Sam's Snack Shack. If anyone has a pool or sprinklers or a Slip 'n Slide, that's groovy too! I also love going to the drive-in and sleeping over at my friends' houses.

      And yes, we go to camp. The girls go to Camp Echo Hill and the boys go to Camp Wilderness. It usually starts the second week of August.

    4. Wow. Your camp starts really late. I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and our schools usually start around then. I home-school, so I can start whenever.

      It sounds like your summer is a lot of fun. My family and I (I have four sister that are all younger), go to the local pool when it gets really hot. What are your favorite summer treats? Mine are popsicles, smoothies and ice cream sundaes.

    5. You start school in August? But that's still summer! We don;t start school until the 3rd week in September.

      Hmmm...I thought smoothies were like heath food. I like milkshakes better, as well as ice-cream, popsicles, ice-cream bars, sno-cones, ice-cream sodas and frozen bananas!

    6. We do end in the middle of May, which could be the reason we start early.
      Smoothies must have been a health food for you, but for me they are a summer snack. My mom makes them using frozen berries, Apple juice, and sometimes a little ice cream.
      I love milkshakes, too. And sno-cones. I guess some delicious summer treats never change.

  7. I know the Oscar Meyer song too! I can also sing the Gumby & Pokey title song which cracks my kids up! Michael is SO cute, and I love that he wanted to share his trike with you. A very sweet boy. : )
