I just got back from my Disney trip with my boyfriend and his family—his brother, his brother’s wife, and his 7-year-old niece, AB. I must admit I was a little nervous about spending so much time around a kid, because although I act like a kid and work around kidstuff all day, the actual amount of contact I have with actual children is very low.
We all got along great, though, and had a great time. I had been told how shy AB was, but she warmed up to me quickly. I attribute this to the fact I played Rock, Paper, Scissors with her for about seven hours straight, “secret” hand motions included, went down the slide with her at the Polynesian about 20 times, and allowed her to play with my iPhone.
