For those who may have missed the antics going on, on my other blog, involving Peggy Sue and her desire to go with Henry to the Sasha Festival I have reposted the posts here...
Peggy Sue was overheard having a discussion with Henry today...
What do you mean I can't go to the Sash Festival because I'm not a Sasha?
That hardly seems fair...I can wear Sasha dresses...as this was bought at the Sasha Festival last year.
Is there a problem with my hair? It isn't falling....
Well I am going to ask Mum then!
So if Mum sees how good I am with the babies, maybe THEN she will let me go to the Sasha Festival...after all technically speaking Henry isn't a Sasha he is a Gregor! (Thanks Aunty Jenni for letting me know that fact!) Plus there is a special baby night, so she will NEED me won't she?
Would you like me to push you Amelia?
There you go, isn't that fun. Now which of you little munchkins are going to the Festival?
WHAT'S that Alfie?! Both of you...
Oh I don't think so!
I think Mum is still trying to decide which of you to take.
Henry finds Peggy Sue out in the garden with all the babies...
What are you doing? Henry asks Peggy Sue
Practising. Peggy Sue answers Henry.
Practising what? Asks Henry.
Why, baby sitting of course. Peggy Sue tells him as if he should automatically know.
But why? A very puzzled Henry asks.
Well because I need to show that I am really
profishent...good at it. She tells him.
But anyone can babysit! Just look they will do exactly what I say... Henry says with ever such a slight scoffing sound to his voice.
Ginger George has other things more interesting on his mind..
Well it doesn't look like they are ALL doing EXACTLY as you say! Peggy Sue informs him.
Just look Ginger George is completely distracted. Watch me...
Georgie...pay attention, would you like me to tell you all a story and then play with you?
All heads turn and look at Peggy Sue
But that is cheating! Henry tells Peggy Sue.
No it is not. It is called focussing their attention...I heard Mum say something about how important it was to make sure the focus was on you before you try and get something done. Or at least I think that is what she said. Peggy Sue explains.
Hi there Georgie, there's a good boy. Do you want me to lift you up? Peggy Sue asks.
Henry talks to Amelia and Isaac... It's just because he has red hair like Rory...
Shall I help you? Peggy Sue gives some attention to Ginger George who seems rather taken by her.
A little while later...
You really are determined aren't you Peggy Sue? Henry asks.
Yes, and why shouldn't I be? You can't have ALL the fun you know. Says Peggy Sue.
I want to see the world as well.
Henry looks intently at Peggy Sue, not quite sure what to think of this very determined little girl.
Peggy Sue and Henry continue their discussion while the babies play.
Sometime later, after Peggy Sue has taken the babies back inside, her and Henry are seen to be still deep in discussion.
So what do you think? How possible do you think it will be? Peggy Sue asks Henry
I really don't know Peggy Sue. It is a after all a 'Sasha Festival' Henry tries to explain.
Yes but as Auntie Jenni pointed out technically you aren't a Sasha either, you are a Gregor! Peggy Sue exclaims.
Yes, but we are made from the same mold, it is just some of us became boys and some girls... Henry starts to broach dangerous ground with this comment.
But how? The all inquisitive Peggy Sue asks.
Well, I don't know...I think you had better ask Mum about things like that! Henry mutters...
Oh I see... Peggy Sue says, although she doesn't really understand...
Anyway, she also said um, that you were a lot heavier than us! Henry comes up with what he thinks is a trump reply! Even more dangerous ground Henry!
Yeah, but I am not! Besides, it is not polite to talk about a girls weight like that. Retorts Peggy Sue.
Henry looks a little confused.
I won't take up much room...I'll only need about this much space on the plane...
See, just about as wide as my body, so I can sit down..
We could sit together Henry, what do you think? After all we are a very similar height and size.
There, it is settled then... Peggy Sue states.
Henry looks a bit bewildered by it all...he is still smiling though, as he is convinced she won't be allowed to go....
