Re: Alone and Together
Hello, Everybodee! This is your furry pal Grover speaking. I am here to talk to you today about Alone and Together.
Alone is when you are all by yourself. You see, here I am, alone. All by myself. Alone.
Together is when you are with someone. You see, here I am, together with my friend Elmo. We are so happy together in our superhero outfits.
Got it? Very good. You are very smart.
Now, let's talk about some times that it is good to be alone. I'll bet your Mommy could tell you some of those.
It is good to be alone when you are on the potty. It is true. (Are you laughing? That is okay.)
It is good to be alone when you are on the telephone.
It is good to be alone in the middle of the night in your very own big-kid bed, when you are sleeping so nicely and not waking anyone else up.
It is good to be alone when you are in the shower because you cannot hear the questions anyone asks you when the water and shampoo are in your ears. Also, you cannot fix any problems because you are all wet!
It is good to be alone when you are reading a book to yourself very quietly and just want to think about the words in your own head.
Now, can you think of some times when it is good to be together? I'll bet your Mommy knows the answer to this one too!
It is good to be together when you are out shopping with a grown-up who does not want to lose you.
It is good to be together when you are having dinner with your family and talking about your day.
It is good to be together when you are reading stories out loud and laughing at the funny bits.
Okay, so, do you understand alone and together now? You do? Very good. Can you tell me all about alone? Wait...where are you going? To be with your Mommy? Isn't she on the phone right now? That would be together...not alone...wait...come back...I thought you were going to tell me about alone...
And now, here I am. Grover. All alone.
Perhaps I should also teach you about near and far.
