After about half an hour of waiting Mummy finished her shaker. It was crap. Mummy wouldn't put it down. She wanted me to join in the shake dance with the Red Lady but I thought it was stupid so she had to do it by herself. I don't think Mummy minds making a fool of herself. I pretended I was related to some Indian Nana who was very nice and had some watermelon and sat still and wasn't dancing with a Coca Cola bottle filled with rice.
Well I finished all the watermelon and wandered off to the sand pit which I particularly like and Mummy came to find me. She sat down with me and began to sieve sand nicely when she let go of her shaker. In a blink, a small person appeared and grabbed hold of it. I have to say Mummy has got some spring loaded reactions. She snatched it back sharpish. But the boy was quicker. He grabbed it back and Mummy and he were having a bit of a tug of war. Mummy won but not before the boy pulled a leg off her horse sticker and made off with it (the leg - not the shaker disappointingly). Mummy was fuming. I don't know why she just didn't give it to him. She couldn't say anything thank goodness because the other Mummies were watching.
She still has the hump about her shaker and the horse with three legs.
|I wouldn't be seen dead holding it|
Mummy it's a Coca Cola bottle filled with rice with a bit of insulation tape round the cap. We can make you another if you like.
