Babess and I went for a walk this afternoon. She held my hand and bounced along beside me, chattering away.
At one point she said, “Mum! Do you know who’s my friend?”
“No,” I confessed.
“You!” she giggled. “Ha ha, I tricked you, didn’t I?!”
I had to agree she had. She got me again later, too. We arrived home, and at the bottom of the steps up to the house she said, “Mum, you stop here. Wait at the bottom.”
Indulgently curious to see what she was up to, I waited and watched her go up the steps by herself. At the top she turned around and laughed.
“I winned you!”
