sugar cube

Sugar and spice and everything nice,
That's what little girls are make of.

I never really stopped to think about it before but that may actually be right.
My granddaughter is as wary of water as if she were a little sugar cube.
Now I don't mean she doesn't like baths or 'washing up.' She is a very motivated little hand washer.
I'm talking about the stray sort of water that summer is often rife with; rogue lawn sprinklers, a hazardous hose, or even, gasp, damp hands smoothing back her hair.
My dear dainty dissolvable darling.
