Smallone: "Now, do you understand, why we will have to do it?"
Grandpa: "Of course sweetie."
We were swinging a lot. We always do while being at the grandparent´s place. We swing till we are sick. But it is the swing´s magic - you are never so sick not to be able to swing again after few minutes.
Maybe you´ve noticed my sister´s hair. Oh yes, she has had a hair cut. She wasn´t so radical as I suggested (well, she is sane), but in spite of it she has shedded about 20 centimetres of her hair. It suits her. And makes her a bit older, I think.
(She´s glad about the getting-older thing. Because when she goes for a walk with Smallone, some people usually stop her saying: "What a lovely girl you have. Is it your small sister, girl? Or are you babysitting for someone?" Oh yes, this really happened. We all laughed about it a lot. Even my sister did:-))
We went shopping after lunch. Smallone should have been asleep. We told her. She knew it. Or she pretended to know it. But she didn´t care about it at all. She was in her walking and running mood.
After the long run Smallone´s legs got hurt a bit ("Sweetie, what about sitting in a pram?" "Nooo, no."), so she rested her legs while we were waiting at the bus stop for our Mum, Smallone´s grandmother.
It was quite fun. People, who were walking along, were watching with astonishment, one small child wanted to join Smallone ("Mum, could I also lie there?" "No, you could´t! It´s freezing, you will get a cold. Come on, keep going!"), but Smallone didn´t care at all. She found the best position for herself and relaxed.
And then our mum arrived and we continued walking home.
Smallone: "Mum, I´ve found a new pair of boots for you. You should buy them!"
Smallone: "I will hold it! I will help you!"
"What is it? I´ve noticed something really interesting over there! I should explore it."
"An old pump! What a thing! I shall try if it still works..."
Note: We got home safely, no wet shoes or any other part of clothes.
