I woke up early today,
But I felt so tired.
I tried to move my hands.
But they felt so heavy!
I could not move my hands.
I tried to sit up in my bed.
But I could not move!
My back hurt and my waist hurt, too.
I tried to move my legs, slowly, very slowly.
I moved one leg first, then the other.
But I could barely move them!
I tried to put my feet on the floor.
One foot first, then the other.
I said, “Naughty feet! You have to move!”
But they would not listen.
I tried to move my head in circles.
I tried to stretch my neck.
But my neck and my head stayed still. Agh!
My eyes were wide open.
Well, I thought, at least, I can move my eyes.
I opened my mouth, slowly, very slowly.
Then I shouted, “Mom!”
She put her hands on my forehead
And said I had a fever.
I was sick! I had to stay in bed.
So I picked up a book.
It was a book about children.
They did many different things!
I would run, sing, jump, and play
With them for a while.
