A little boy—a baby! He’s lovely. He’s so sweet. He hasn’t picked up his rubbish, because boys don’t pick up rubbish! He’s enjoying himself—beautiful!
It’s taking place in the country. They put the baby alone with the toys. The baby is trying to catch them. He is sitting in a box. It’s keeping him in one place—nice and clean!
The baby’s name is Jack. There’s a bag on the ground in front of him. He is mischievous. Jack is a year old. He’s only a baby. Jack is smiling and grinning his head off. Maybe his parents are taking a photo. Jack has a pillow behind him.
Bill tells us that: “boy or girl, the baby looks happy and that’s the most wonderful thing for children to be happy”.
Jack is sitting in a bushy scene, but there’s a step in front of him and he could be in a backyard. There are no adults around him. He’s grown up a little bit, but you can’t leave him alone.
You can hear birds chirping. It might be summer because he’s wearing light clothes. Jack is probably the first child, and the grandparents and friends come and say: “Have you taken more photos?”
Hopefully, Mum and Dad will turn up with food. It’s not the best weather, so they’ll probably take Jack inside to eat. As babies get older they’re going to learn more things. How children are brought up affects how they develop, so we don’t know what the future holds. We don’t know the parents, but Jack looks happy and clean.
The box on the ground looks like it holds chocolate. Jack is grinning his head off, looking down the hill. He’s got a bottle and he can see his dad has just arrived back, so Jack is as happy as Larry!
Jack has contentment and that’s a wonderful thing for kids. Children can have a great life—it’s up to them. They have the potential to have a wonderful life!
