Excerpt from Tania gets lost

An Interesting Discovery
“Tania, don’t you want to take a nap?” Mama called out.
“No Mama. I’m not sleepy. You know, I don’t usually sleep in the
afternoon.” Tania replied.
“Yes, but I thought this morning’s trek would have worn you out. See,
Sonia is fast asleep.” Mama said pointing to baby Sonia on her bed.
“Tanisha and I are not at all sleepy Mama. This place is so exciting. We
want to do some exploring. Can we do that now, Mama?”
“I have no idea how you have so much energy, but if you feel up to it, I
don’t see why not. Have fun. Papa and I are off to bed. I’m sure
Tanisha’s parents will want some rest too.” Mama yawned and headed
for her bedroom.
Tania went to find Tanisha. Their families were vacationing together in
a cottage in Gethia, a small town near Nainital. Their parents had
rented out a quaint, three-bedroom, hill top cottage with a yard for a
week in the middle of May.
Tania’s parents occupied the bedroom on the top floor of the cottage
and baby Sonia slept with them. The room opened out to a large
terrace, where Sonia enjoyed running around and playing with her cars
and blocks. Tanisha’s parents had the bedroom on the floor below to
themselves. The balcony there had a gorgeous view of the lush green
Tanisha’s sister Trisha had not joined them on the holiday, because she
was busy studying for an entrance exam. So, Tania and Tanisha got to
share the third bedroom on the lowest floor. It was connected to a small
game room with cupboards full of toys, boardgames and books. The
game room had a door that opened out directly to the backyard. The
girls were thrilled with the arrangement.
