The grandfather and the child

'Creep with me,' she said - Little Miss Tippi-toe,
Her tender features yearning for the game to be played.
The little mouth dipped as she saw your shoulders hesitate.
'Please,' little blue eyes asked, and how could you now say no?
And crawl you did, beginning a simple game,
' I'm a cat - meow,' her face lighting up with joy.
It's a memory I would not give up for the world.


  1. This makes me laugh. Grandfather would not do this for any other person that is for certain. Wish you had this on film.

  2. Weronika thanks so much for commenting.I really appreciate it.

    Mon - it was Grandpa D not M :). That ought to give you a laugh, because he really did crawl.

    For those of you who don't know 'Grandpa D', it's my fatehr in law, who very obviously groaned at being asked to crawl on the floor for a game. He just didn't realise that she was serious, and the she never contemplated that he would say no. She looked so disappointed that he did 'creep with her', just as she asked.
