Every time I walk up the stairs, Sophie has to runrunrunrunrun ahead of me, then flop onto her back on the landing:
"You cannot resist the power of KITTEH BELLEH!"
And I can't, either. Every time I've got to kneel down and snorgle her rotten for ages. Then when I get up, she rolls over on her side and stares at me plaintively, or, worse, stares into space dejectedly.
"Why you gots to leave?"
Is she kidding me with this stuff? It really is a miracle I manage to get anything done. Because, let's face it, Matilda and Olivia aren't exactly slouches in the Cute Department themselves.
