Pay it Forward

We watched a movie called "pay it forward" at school, its about a person making someones life.
And we were asked to do the same thing in the holidays. So here's what I did.

I decided to help one of our family friends and my mom. One of our family friends were close to where we live, their 2 houses away, so I decided to help them. I asked my mom if I could babysit her daughter named pheobe, [fee-bee] and she said I could! So in December 22-29 , I was babysitting pheobe. She goes to Sargent too, and her little cousins.

At 10:00 am, my mom told me that her cousin is coming here, so I will be babysitting 2 kids, then my mom told me to do the dishes for her. [so I was kinda like a maid~] . About 10:35, pheobe's cousin was here, and her name is Jasmine.

Jasmine is a shy person, and Pheobe is a loud person. And my mom was sleeping upstairs [Pheobe, Jasmine and I were downstairs, by the way] . After about 15 minutes, Pheobe told me that she was bored, and Jasmine said nothing ... So I told Pheobe what she wants to do, and she said to watch "Saw 5" on the computer! "Ummm... I think that's too scary for you..." I said. "No, " Pheobe said. "Why don't you watch that treehouse or something ?" I said. "I don't wanna watch that anymore cause that's too corny!" Pheobe said.

I didn't wanted her to watch Saw 5, because she was only ... 3 or 4 years old, so I told her that she too young to watch Saw 5, then she said "okay".
So I decided to let them play on my piano and my guitar, play somthing on the computer that is two players, or take pictures.

Then at 8:00 pm, her dad was here to pick her up. Jasmine was still quiet, and Pheobe started to cry, because she still wanted to stay and play and stuff. I felt sorry for Pheobe so I told my mom if I could give them my old, small clothes that I've never wore, and my mom said yes. So I gave Pheobe my old, small clothes then she stopped crying, and started getting ready to head home.
After all that babysitting, I felt tired but happy :) .
Question: Can a person make a difference ?
Answer: of course , because when you help other people, you can make them happy!

Great job Elmane! Although, I think you explained your babysitting a little too much, but it was very detailed (: I also liked your pictures. Good job, again!
