So, I'm in NJ, visiting my brother for his 40th birthday and enjoying time with my fairy goddaughter.
I've never been a babysitter. Most of my west coast friends don't have kids. So I haven't spent a whole lot of time with little ones. But I'm really enjoying my niece.
I've found that my habit of constantly making up weird songs and singing comes in very handy. My latest hits, "Buddy the Penguin is Your Friend" and "The Dance in Your Pants" can instantly stifle a cry and sprout a smile.
I'm also thinking that I might be able to skip working out my arms this week, since walking around the house while singing and bouncing the little one seems to be tightening everything up just fine.
I've fed her food, warmed bottles and played with lots of toys. All in all, I'm thinking Auntie Suzie is doing pretty well.
How about you? Are you a kid person? What have your experiences with kids been like?
