To catch you when you fall

Babess tripped on our concrete steps this morning, and came in scraped and howling.  I held her on my knee and washed her scrapes with a cold facecloth while she calmed down.  She had barked one shin, grazed both knees, and even scored a tiny – but doubtless painful – scrape on her pinky finger.

“Mum…”

“Yes?”

“I wish we could just be invisible when we fall over.” She hiccoughed and sobbed again.

“Become invisible?! Then how would I give you cuddles?”

“No, we would just become invisible when we fall over and then we would become real again.”

I think she had in mind some kind of magic force-field which would save us all from stumbles.  Not a bad idea…

    Awww! Precious girl. I think that’s an excellent idea. And it would look super cool too. 🙂

    I am in favor of her magic force field. It would solve a lot of problems over here.
