Reader's Story: Janae Tatem

Updated: Apr 30, 2021

My name is Janae Tatem. I am 5 years old, and this is what self-care means to me.


I like to eat lots of fruit, broccoli, and soup to make my body healthy. They give me vitamins and make me strong.

I always play outside with my friends because that makes me happy, especially in the summer when I can swim in the pool.



When I go for a walk with my mommy and daddy, I like to see all the dogs because I love dogs. When I get to pet the dogs, it makes me happy and makes my heart happy.

At night, my daddy pretends he is a turtle. He carries me up the stairs on his back so I can brush my teeth and keep them healthy. Then I get into bed because sleeping is good. When I sleep, my mommy says I grow.



Drawing also makes me happy and calm. I love to draw pictures especially of people and animals.


Because of COVID-19, we have to stay home and sometimes that makes me sad because I don't get to go to different places but I can stay home and bake zucchini bread with my mommy.


Being happy and making your body healthy means self-care.
