The Noisy Boy

“Timmy, it’s time to get ready for school,” his mum called.

“I don’t want to go today. I want to go to the zoo.” Timmy shouted and threw his books on the ground. He cried and kicked his feet.

“Timmy, stop all that noise and stop arguing with me. You have no choice. You have to go to school.” Mum put her hands to her ears and mumbled. “There’s too much noise around here.”

“Mum, I want to go to the zoo. I want to see the lions.” Timmy roared. “I want to see the elephants.” Timmy blared like a wild animal. “I want to see bears and tigers and gorillas.” He jumped up and ran around the house making all sorts of animal noises.

“I’m sorry, Timmy, but you are going to school, right now. Pick up your books and get in the car.” Mum sighed. Timmy still wouldn’t cooperate. Mum grabbed his arm and pulled him all the way to the car. “You’re going to school.”

Timmy screeched the entire way. He whined, complained and sobbed. Mum put her hands to her ears. “Timmy, stop making all that noise.” Finally they arrived at the school. Mum had to drag Timmy in and give him to the teacher.

She walked out to the car and drove to the park. After she climbed out, she smiled. All she could hear were birds chirping and squirrels running about and a gentle breeze. It was quiet and peaceful and she wanted to stay there all day. She sat on a bench and saw a baby bird in a nest, so she walked over to it. “Hello little bird. I hope you’re quiet for your mummy and don’t make too much noise.”

When the mummy bird flew back with a few big juicy worms, the baby bird chirped and made all sorts of noises. Mum laughed. “I guess little ones are all the same.”
