How Many Hail Marys?

At dinner last night we were talking about confirmation sponsors and how they should do things together. Mum said that Charlotte should ask Callum, who is her sponsor, to say more prayers for her.

I said, "I'd like ten bottles of Hail Marys please."

"How many Hail Marys fit in a bottle?" Sophie asked.

"How big is the bottle?" someone asked.

"Are Hail Marys liquids, solids, or gases," someone else asked.

"I hope they're not gases," Mum said. "Or you won't fit many in a bottle."

What do you think? How many Hail Marys fit on a bottle? And are they a liquid, a solid, of a gas?

Tiny Teeth

A week and a half ago I lost one of my top front teeth. Today I got another one out. It is my other top front tooth. Now I have a big gap

Mum was reading me a story and I twisted my tooth round. Crack! It became really loose. Then we had lunch. It was hard to eat my lunch. I broke bits of food of with my hands and chewed with my back teeth.
Suddenly my tooth popped out. It was tiny. I gave it straight to Mum in exchange for two dollars. Then I went to the bathroom to look at my gap. It looked like someone had punched me in the mouth, except no one would punch me.

Cooking On My Own

Mum had a new cookbook: The Aldi Cookbook. She said, "Girls, go and choose a few recipes to cook."
So we looked in the cookbook. Imogen read out the dinner names. We all chose two recipes. I chose "Cream of Chicken Drumstick" and "Spaghetti with Ham and Mushrooms."
Mum, Charlotte and I went to Aldi to get all the ingredients we needed for our new dinners.

The next day it was my turn to cook. I was going to cook "Spaghetti with Ham and Mushrooms."
Imogen supervised, and read out the instructions.
I cut the ham up with a sharp knife. Then I cut up the mushrooms. I mixed some things together. Then I cut up the onion. It made my eyes water a little bit. I cooked the ham and the mushrooms and the onion on the stove. Charlotte cooked the spaghetti of me.
When the spaghetti was cooked Charlotte drained it. Then we added cream, cheese, eggs, the ham, mushrooms, and onion. Imogen stirred it together for me.

Then we had dinner. Imogen put the food on plates and I carried it to the table. Everyone loved it. We decided we had to have it again.
I really enjoyed cooking by myself because I got to do everything myself. I want to cook more on my own.
