Even though Christmas is over, today we’re going to share a little Christmas Joy with an interview with a sweet little girl named Joy.
Interviewer: Hi, Joy. Did you have a good Christmas this year?
Joy: Joy nods. Christmas is also my birthday. So I get lots and lots of presents.
Interviewer: That’s cool. Do you like having your birthday on Christmas?
Joy: Most of the time. This year I didn’t get the bike I was wishing for.
Interviewer: Why is that?
Joy: My mom says our apartment is too small, and we don’t have any other place to store the bike. She says it would be better to wait until we live in a house.
Interviewer: She’s probably right. Do you think that will happen any time soon.
Joy: Maybe. We haven’t lived in the apartment very long. We moved to Hallburg because my mom lost her job, and she was looking for a new one. We have relatives here that she said would help. That’s why we’re living in her cousin’s old apartment. She also got to be in her cousin’s wedding. That was fun. I had never been to a wedding before. We got to eat good food and dance to music.
Interviewer: That does sound like fun. Have you made new friends in Hallburg? Do you like your new town?
Joy: I like it here. Mom’s cousin’s new husband has two kids, Maddie and Owen. I hang out with them sometimes. They’re older than me, but that’s okay. They have other friends I have met, too. I got to have a sleepover with the big girls. That was fun!
Interviewer: What did you do at the sleepover?
Joy: We laughed and talked a lot. We had popcorn and watched at movie. I also got to play with Maddie’s dog, Charlie. I want a dog someday, too. My mom keeps trying to convince me to get Mr. Tony’s dog, Pippa.
Interviewer: Who is Mr. Tony?
Joy: He’s a friend of my mom’s. He’s really nice and helps me with my homework. I want my mom and Mr. Tony to fall in love, so I have a plan.
Interviewer: What is your plan?
Joy: I can’t tell. It’s my secret.
Interviewer: I wish you the best with your plan.
Joy: If my plan works, I get a dad and a dog. That would be the best!
Interviewer: It would. Thanks for talking with me, Joy.
Joy: You’re welcome.
