Small Talk #49


I so want to be grown up Ike Granny and Baba. I know I'm only 18 months and still quite little, but I've been practising how to be really grown up.

Every time I do something the Ancients think a bit strenuous, I go "humph!" It seems to be what you do when you're grown up. Every step I go down, it's "humph!". I don't know why they laugh at me... they do it!

"He's copying us! I hear myself going humph!" said Granny.

"Wait until he gets sciatica then!" said Baba grumpily, as he stepped down with a "humph!"

    He is so! He's the funniest, luckiest boy around. My daughter, who is rather disabled, is a wonderful mother to him and now lives in the next village to us, so we feature quite significantly in his life - lucky us! 😀

    He sounds pretty lucky too, surrounded by all that love. And kudos to your daughter for being such a great mother despite her challenges.
