Sunday Morning Bric-a-Brac  
The picnic was fun, if odd. I'm not used to being around people with children. I have no relatives and hardly any friends with kids. This event? A million rugrats! Nin and I were the only adults there unmarried and/or without children. Nin's boss has eight of them! But they were all very nice and welcoming. Nin said it was exactly like a southern bbq except without beer. I also did baby holding duty and acted as bunny bodyguard -- Nin will have more on that.

Came home and decided to watch Return of the King. It's nearly 2am and we're just to Sam rescuing Frodo from the tower. Have been twittering muchly, and plotting out next part of Yuma fic. God bless me, but I think there may be actual sex scenes. Currently, I'm resiting that outcome.

I know--or once knew--the feeling of being around kids when you really have little experience with them. Being the younger in my family, and not having nieces or nephews from my brother, all of my learning has come through the nieces and nephews on Wayne's side. Yeah, and I work with kids! But I knew that I could learn, and I did. Still, I know your plight.

So....you were a bunny bodyguard. That's a great first step. That, and holding babies! ♥

Actually, I was a nanny for quite a few years when I was much younger. It was mostly the amount of them and not really having a lot of day in day out contact with kids. That and feeling out of place with all those happy families :)

At least no one asked when you were having kids of your own (at least I hope not). I hate that. My cousin just had a kid and I've been hearing it a lot.

I love all 3 LotR movies. You can always rewatch them, well I can anyways.
