Aliza meet Grubby.
Grubby meet Aliza.
The first time Aliza saw Grubby on my bed she started saying, "He's scary, he's scary." Then I started to sing "He's not scary, he's just misunderstood." Those two phrases have become a musical moment between us whenever Aliza comes into my room. It is quite beautiful.
So far, she still thinks he's a scary monster, but the fact that she's singing those words tells me that she is warming up to him.
And he's just waiting for the day.
