Post 585 Young but Old

’09 Jan 08 Yesterday afternoon I babysat my 14 month old granddaughter while my daughter went to get a blood test and do some errands. I was sitting on the couch and she was standing beside me playing with her toys when she lost her balance. She managed to sit down but then fell forward and hit her head on my left leg before I could reach her. I reached down to help her sit up and saw her lower lip begin to drop. I said, “Ouch” and she looked and pointed at my leg. I reached down to rub my leg and as I was going to touch her head, she reached over and grabbed her blanket, stood up and then began to drape it over my knees and legs. She then hugged my legs for a few seconds before she looked up at me. She then held her outstretched arms toward me and as I leaned forward and picked her up, she gave me a hug and a cuddle as if to make it all better. She then looked at me to see if I was all right. I smiled at her and she smiled back. She then climbed down from my lap and carried on playing with her blanket and toys.
