role reversal

Elsie runs over, carefully shielding one cupped hand with the other. She reaches me on the blanket and picks out an almost whole raspeberry from her collection.
'For me?" I feign surprise and give her a grin. I open my mouth as wide as I can and she pops it in. 'Mmmm!' I say, and before I can take a breath, she fixes her gaze on me and says 'what you say?'
I stifle a giggle. 'Thank you Elsie.'
'You're welcome Mummy!' and smiling sweetly, she stuffs the remaining raspberries in her mouth.
