Granma, come here'





Why do you want me to come over there?



I want my blanket.

It was next to her on the floor, within reach.

Did your arms fall off?


Walking away I hear, Granma, I want you...

Little Miss 3 is fighting return of the disgusting cough, with associated fever.

She took 17 and a half years off my life while she was sleeping this afternoon, eyes open, mumbling things. I had to think about whether this was a wee special of hers because she is special or consider the fact she was delirious.

Cool face cloth and stripping her down to her sleeping diapers did wonders and now she's found my motherly achilles heel ... nothing is too much for the sick one.

Earlier she called me over with the words, 'Granma, I need a hug'.

I'm glad her mum is coming back tonight. I've been here and done this, it's a slippery slope for me, I can't over-ride the mothering thing that lurks in my body.

Well, I don't think she was delerious, she's a serious sleeper but it was disturbing knowing she was also quite warm at the time.

She smiled over the get well soon :)
