Thursday, July 21, 2011So the 6-year-old little sister of one of The Kid's teammates has decided to adopt me because
During the last game, while the little girl is bemoaning the lack of good games on my iPod, her 2-year-old little brother comes over and starts begging to have his picture taken - of course I oblige because the child is gorgeous -
then he starts going through my purse, picking through my wallet, trying on all the bracelets and sampling all the lip balms*.
As he starts to put a furry cough drop in his mouth, then reach for my Swiss Army Knife, I make the clicking noise I make when one of my pets is misbehaving and tell him "Leave it!" and I realize 2 things:
1) My purse is not especially toddler-safe
2) I no longer** have any idea how to interact with children.
** I know that this implies that I did, at one time, have some idea of how to interact with children, but honestly, I can't say for sure
