- lull a child that i didnt give birth to, to sleep.
i hardly know this 2 year old. just a hello — you are so cute kinda one-way street.
but this time as i lifted her she looked indifferent to the world at large and me in particular.
i patted patted patted. just like the mmmim used to do for our boys. even when they werent sleepy.
and slowly her head curved onto my shoulder.
and when her mum came for her she was fast asleep.
naturally, i am now upping the 1.general warmth and 2.universal likeability quotient on my personal report card.
because adorable 2 year olds dont fall asleep on just anyone
- have a toad sit on my arm.
BUT. after the
1. g. warmth and
2. u. likeability quotient

and this toad from our backyard, chose ME, and my left arm to leap onto — and wouldnt leave for 4.8 seconds, despite my shrieking and quivering
p.s. if you are from the animal kingdom.kindly scroll down to the part in my new report card that has the fine print which reads ‘conditions apply’
