“He’s good looking,” says Maria!
Gorgeous! Very handsome!
“Yes, I like this one,” says Roberta.
The boy’s name is Mimi and he’s a very sweet boy. Pam thinks his name could be John. He’s three years old.
Bill thinks that if it’s taking place in a house, then the boy’s name is Bubba or Bubby! But Ellen thinks the boy is outside.
Our John thinks the boy is over three years. Mimi tried to play with the grandparents and the toys. That’s the grandparent right there.
It looks like it’s taking place in a park, not at a house, because there are so many trees. Bill thinks that the first taller thing was already there and the boy just came up and put his arms around it.
Eileen thinks Mimi is happy and he’s waiting for someone to talk to him. He’s got someone with him. Maybe his dad.
In the distance, Mimi has seen this, or he’s seen it before, and he thinks: “Ahhhh, I want to go over there”, before his dad sees him! Isobel says that’s why you send Dads, so they can keep up! Well … not really!
Mimi is hugging something that goes into the ground to help keep the area after the storm, so the children can come in and play again. It’s quite a relief for the parents.
If they’re your grandchildren, you are doubly lucky. If the parents aren’t very well or are at work, who takes the children? It’s wonderful!
Mimi is nice and the park is very nice.
Bill thinks the taller one is stuck in the backyard and the little one comes out and puts his arms around it and sometimes says “Mumma” or “Dadda”. That Bubby has been called inside, but he says “No” and he wants to stay out there!
That’s why you need to carry something in your pocket, so you can wave it around and “woosh”, over they come!
