I have the extraordinary good fortune to be caring for my lovely goddaughter Sophie over the next few days. She is a delight, Rose and I are thrilled. ‘Ta’ she says this morning, giving me her bunny to cuddle. Ta is also how she asks for it back after a moment so she can chew on the ribbon around Bunny’s neck. We play peekaboo through the bars of her cot. She pushes the blanket off the side and tries to pull it back through the bars. We have a two minute argument about whether she’s going to pour her bottle of milk onto my jumper. It’s a precious glimpse into a world Rose and I are longing for.
