I love kids for the most part. I always have. Sure there are days where I want to trap myself in a quiet room, but I think we all have those days.

There was one time where I felt really bad:

On a bus in Atlanta a kid kept staring at me. Now usually after I smile, they smile too. They won't come to me, but they'll smile at me. Then if I make a face, they'll laugh. Well the kid on the bus many moons ago didn't laugh. They flat out started to scream cry like someone hit them. I wanted to hide, but instead confessed that I was just trying to be friendly to the kid, and scared them. I didn't dare tell the mom that I was making silly faces at their child. I 

The Mom huffed, and puffed and blew the bus down. Ok not really.

I felt like she gave me the death stare. You'd think after apologizing that she'd be ok. Nope! I hope she didn't think I was a creeper that was trying to win over her kid, and kidnap him. No, No, No!

There were a lot of times where I didn't feel bad at all:

My cousin's kids are the types that won't come to me at first. They kind of giggle, and run away.

I crawl over to them and say, "BOO!" They giggle some more.

Then we exchange silly faces.

After that we're the best of friends. I even let them use my camera.

I like kids in small doses. I love my nieces and nephews, but usually feel really relieved when they leave. They suck the energy right out of me lol

I never really spent much time around children other than my own. I did see a lot of children in foreign countries that had it pretty rough. After a while I just got used to it. There were always kids hanging around the camps hoping to do odd jobs. The military police were supposed to run them off but never did. Americans are soft hearted about kids, especially if there were American women in the camps. They would have taken all those urchins with us if they could have smuggled them aboard the ships.

Huge kid person here too. I like the kids to play at my house, then I don't have to worry if my kiddos are safe. :)

Love kids... just as long as I don't have a bunch here. Ha ha.. I hate to say it, but I don't like being responsible for more than just mine. There are so many sue happy people out there these days, I don't want to risk it.

Savannah was being a good girl at lunch the other day, the table beside us smiled at her and she started screaming bloody murder. We laughed, they realized we were okay with it and they laughed too. A few minutes later, she was fine too.. but she didn't want to look at those people. haaaaaaaaa
