obscured viewpoint for some reason maybe its because imaging out of the Young mothers group there Are never any Small children around the House anymore nobody i know has Small children and no one under school age Ever comes through the House a Friend of mine who was visiting relative who ill though mentioned to me earlier in the Day that her laughter and grandson were visiting her Well Why dont you leave the Little boy with me i said while both of you go and visit she seemed appreciative but u Little sceptical Hes just three she said and he really has a lot of Energy that was Fine with me with two boys inthe family Energy is nothing new so when she called at six thursday night to Tell me that maybe shed better wait till another one Over the let me keep him i told her no that it would really boost my morale to play mama to a three Earold for a while so with a ring of the Doorbell came Matt three years old he walked in the House a perfect stranger waved goodbye to his Mother and grandmother without a qualm and me a big hug although it was the first time Heb Ever seen me he want one to mess around with formalities he handed me a Book and said Here you can read me this later when he had appeared at the door a Little boy with Beautiful Blond hair and dressed in Brown Corduroy overalls and Matching shirt i had said of How cute Hes at a stage where Hes learning new words and when i took him into my living room he said sincerely of How cute about that time my youngest son and the girl next door came in he looked at them both and said in a syrupy voice of How cute pretty soon we were feeling like he was one of the family he had already eaten but he sat Down at the table with us and ate St me cookies he was also drinking Coke and when he finished he flew Over to the counter with his cup his answer to my question where Are you going came simultaneously with my seeing the Coffee pot sitting near the Edge of the counter where he was putting my cup i made some kind of record run to grab him but he simply put the cup beside the Coffee pot and looked at me As if i were a crazy lady it dawned on me after my heart stopped pounding that you forget How it is to childproof a House when the children Are past the age of pulling off Coffee pots v with supper Over he had the Choice of three forms of entertainment watching television listening to one son play the guitar or around by Faye Marks playing records and games with the other one it was no hard Choice for did them All he watched television Long enough to say when a prize was Given on one of the game shows of How cuu Ute then he was strapping on my sons old guitar and playing along and he was playing he Deando seek and he was listening to records he was playing Golf and Reading to us and exploring in my sons closet and talking while about How everything was so cute i gave him another cookie and after he ate it he went flying Down the hallway where Are you going i asked to Wash my hands he hollered Over his shoulder then he slowed Down came Back and looked in the doorway and said in an incredulous voice dont you Wash your hands when you eat cookies it was not Long before his Mother and grandmother came Back and it was to Tell the truth too soon for me i was getting used to Little feet running around Are you going to Wash the dishes before you go i asked him jokingly he pondered this for a minute As if torn Between Whit was the right thing to do and what he wanted to do i has to go to my grandmothers now he said with that he kissed everybody in the family including an unwilling sixth when he tried to Ward it off got the kiss right in the stomach he skipped out the door and said to me Fank you i had a Nice time then i made the mistake of saying of How because As he passed our
