Nikki Dee is not only a lovable kid but also very loving. When she encountered this boy at the playground, she gave him a hug. Poor boy didn’t quite know what to make of that, but later he was happy to play in the sand with Little Mother. (Sorry about the hair, but when Buppa is on call in the morning, it shows.)
It was soon time to transfer her mothering instincts to an even younger child, who didn’t seem at all perturbed by the helping hand.
At other times, she is quite happy to relinquish her mothering duties in order to assume the rightful role of a carefree child.
