Model Answer:

Thank you for this nice cue card topic. I love children because of their innocent ways of thinking even though they can be a handful sometimes. But, the child, I am going to talk about, is never a handful. Rather, I have always found her to be one of the sweetest children around.

Talking about a 5-year-old child here and this child also happens to be the only little daughter of my elder brother. She is such a sweet and lovely kid that it would be almost impossible to ignore her even on your worst days. There is no doubt that her parents love her with their lives, but sometimes, I feel like the little 5-year-old princess loves me more than her own parents, probably because she doesn’t see them that much. And she doesn’t get to see them that much or spend enough time with them because they both work outside of their home. Of course, it looks like this absence of her parents doesn’t really bother her too much since her grandmother (my mother) provides her with all kinds of love and comfort in the absence of her rather busy parents. Then, of course, she also has me, her only uncle, to support and accompany her.

Anyway, this little niece of mine is a very happy kid, and she has almost no complaints except when her pink dress looks dirty. She also likes to feed fried chicken to her little pet cat. By the way, I have to visit the room of this little princess of our family at least once a day, otherwise she feels that I don’t love her enough. So, yes, she does know how to get her fair share of love from her only uncle.

Anyway, I have a very strong bond with this little girl as I always treat her like my own daughter. I also feel that she brings a lot of happiness and joys to our family with her bubbly presence.
