The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home for me is when I get home, I help my family make a nice dinner and hear my little brother screaming with his dad.

I sit on the couch while waiting for dinner and my Step Dad helps me with my homework. Then we eat dinner we hear my Step Dad talking about work and me and my mom go crazy. I know that I’m safe in my house.

After dinner my mom cleans up the kitchen and then we watch a family movie and eat snacks. It is really hard to watch a movie with my little brother. He is almost 3 so he is really crazy.

After we watch a family movie, we go to lay down in our comfy beds. I think the most important meaning of home is spending time with your family.
