I now have a niece. I can’t meet her for a while, but that’s not a problem because I don’t find small babies that interesting. They don’t do anything. (Human) just aren’t cute.
Not being able to hold her is a bonus – I met my nephew when he was two weeks old and there is photographic proof of me holding him and neither of us looking comfortable. They’re much more interesting when they can do something.
I’m more looking forward to being able to go over there to play with my nephew’s Lego. He particularly likes directing other people to build things, and I’m all for that.
