I heard a creak behind me, afraid to turn around.
Oh oh, it’s that kid Mellie, she’s making baby sounds.
She laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed some more
I just wanted to make it back through the stores front door.

Finally Granny Green came and picked that little kid up.

Absolutely grand, wonderful, marvelous~~~any and every adjective of praise you could come up with wouldn't do this one justice. It's a keeper and is coming with me in a few days to Chicago, to be read to the wee ones. Thanks for this one. I simply love it. ~~~~~~marci.xo~~~
