MAIDEN SOLO PRAM VOYAGE WITH ROSA
I had an interesting afternoon with my granddaughter, Rosa and her mama, my daughter, Selina.
It followed an interesting morning gardening at The Rectory, where I work one half day a week with my good friends Sue and Fran.
When I arrived at my daughter's house little Rosa was playing in her baby rocker, situated in the kitchen, while mummy baked some cakes for daddy's birthday tomorrow.
Little Rosa was in fine form and voice ~ we were singing nursery rhymes and she was laughing and screeching joining in ~ I have never seen her so chirpy. She sat on my knee and we played for an age and a little later her mummy fed her and then said she wanted to do some more work in the kitchen, so I said I would take her out for a walk in her pram. She loved it and obviously felt totally at ease with me because she was laughing and gurgling like there was no tomorrow. I was out with her for an hour and whilst walking I stopped and took a photo.
Then she really started laughing. It was almost as though she was imagining her saying, "Grandpa! please make me a pram which goes as fast as the one in the video!" lol
Then she fell asleep and I kept walking.
When we returned home she awoke and I handed her to her daddy who had just returned home from work.
It was time to say goodbye since I had some shopping to do, and I was quite amazed that when I said goodbye to her she extended her little arms all by herself for me to pick her up and give her a little cuddle.
