is for the little step stool that belonged to my grandaunt Helen Killeen Parker.
The saying always amuses me:
This little stool is mine
I use it all the time
To reach the things I couldn’t
And lots of things I shouldn’t
Obviously the humorous poem suggests it was intended for use by a child. In fact, that is how I use it. It is in the guest bathroom so that the grandbaboos can reach the sink when they come to visit.
However, Helen had no children, so I wonder if she purchased it for the nieces and nephews who might have visited her. Poem aside, it would still be a handy device in the kitchen for an adult to reach whatever rests on the top shelf of the cabinet.
