Not tired, no really I’m not

Fainjin had a friend come over to play today.  While they discussed dinosaurs and Lego and fire-engines, we sat in the kitchen with his friend’s Mum and enjoyed a leisurely chat over a cuppa.

Babess appeared – in her pink fairy dress, of course – and climbed up into my lap.  She snuggled right in, and started sucking her thumb.

“Are you a bit tired?” I asked, and she murmured “Mmmmm” before realising it was a trick question and shaking her head.

“Are you sure?  You might need a nap…”  This suggestion was met with a more vigorous head-shake, and she snuggled harder against me, pulling her arm into her sleeve (something she always does when tired).

I let her snuggle, and kept chatting.  Within five minutes The Dad raised his eyebrows at me and nodded towards Babess.  She was fast asleep.
