i just had one of the best days ever. Here is my story:
Today I went to church and sang in the choir like I always do. After church Mom & I went to the zoo. I kind of like the zoo. I would like it better if I wasn’t so afraid of peacocks. At our zoo, peacocks just wander around. I get very anxious at the zoo because I never know when a peacock will show up. They make a loud noise too. I think they scare me because I use a wheelchair and they just seem to be coming at me. One time I went into the zoo cafe and my mom said that peacocks don’t go in there. Of course a peacock came up to me when I was eating. So Mom was wrong.
To help me get over my fear of peacocks I have to start practicing going to the zoo and looking at them. Today was my first day. I was nervous but I kept calmer than usual. I got within 10-12 feet of the peacock. When the peacock started coming towards me I ran, but really I did fine so before we left Mom said since I did a great job I could get a stuffed animal. I got a manatee. I am trying to decide on a name.
Do you have any fears?
