Gatekeeper

This morning, both The Dad and I happened to be in the bathroom at the same time.  A little fist knocked on the door and a voice said, “Mummy!  Mummy!”

I laughed and knocked back – I was about to go out in any case.  She knocked, I knocked, and I tapped out a rhythm.  I heard giggles on the other side of the door.

“Can we come out?” I asked.

“No!” a stern voice replied.  The Dad burst out laughing.  I opened the door to a fierce face but twinkling eyes, and scooped little Miss Bossy up for a hug.
