One of the many joys of having the grandchildren to stay overnight is when they wake up in the morning and drift into our bedroom for a chat. They’ve learnt to check that it’s not too early but that still means any time from 7am onwards.
At 7 o’clock on Boxing Day morning, 3-year-old Iris climbed into our bed and asked if we still had that square thing you put on your feet. Seeing our perplexity she added that it’s got numbers on, which had us even more baffled.
She then jumped out of the bed, said she knew where it was, and reaching under the wardrobe she pulled out the bathroom scales proclaiming ‘here it is’!
What an angel.
“When are you going to do shapes and not just scribbles”, I asked Iris, age 3¼.
“I can, grandad”, she said. She then produced a drawing – of me! Wonderful.
