Sixth birthday; first tooth lost

Robin

Robin marked his sixth birthday by losing his first tooth. It fell out in the day, letting him avoid having to negotiate his birthday pizza with a very wobbly tooth. His party was in the leisure centre and involved games of football and play on a bouncy castle.

Gabe

Gabe can seem mature for his age: chatting to dads at Robin’s football about City and United. And he can seem naive: not really up to speed with his friends in the car on the way to football practice, as they talk about asking girls out, wrestling and taunting each other.

Eliza

Eliza didn’t make it into the school choir. But she always has a song on the go, which gets sung repeatedly. Right now, we hear the first three lines of Ain’t no mountain high enough over and over again.
