Death1 - Coffee

(no subject)

What is children's fascination with me?
Today my mum's best friend and husband brought their 3 year old granddaughter to visit us. I hadn't seen her since just after she was born. She instantly latched onto me and spent the day following me round and demanding attention, entertainment and everything else from me.

This happens every time a relative brings a child over.

I may like children, but I am not terribly maternal. I am not very good with small children as a rule. I have no idea what a 3 year old likes to do for fun. Half the time I don't understand a word they say to be honest. Yet still they hang off me.

It's confusing, as well as quite tiring.
