Grow up? A Dragon's Dilemma “You're acting like a baby dragon. You're big now.

” Mommy and Daddy always say. In the morning, I do take time getting dressed. Mommy rushes me, “Why aren't you ready like your big sister?” After school, I forget my hat. “Let's go. Big dragons keep their stuff together,” Daddy reminds . At dinner time... “Sit up like a big dragon!” says everyone. But, when we drive to school, we pass the bus stop. Big dragons blow out their flames, cough, blow out more. Mommy says, “Don't do like those grown-up dragons!” On the playground, the bigger dragons blow steam in my and my friends' faces. When I tell Daddy what happens, he says, “Walk away from the big, bully dragons.” At home, my big sister is on the phone until bedtime. My parents roll their eyes. “Augh, teen dragons! What are we going to do?” But, when Mommy and Daddy come into my room to say good night, I already have my pajamas on. I have already brushed my teeth. My homework is done. I give them a big hug. They smile. “You're a sweet, little dragon.
