How to get a small child to like you

Play jump rope with himGive him a balloon

Let her wrestle with you

Yell "kilot, kilot!" ("undies, undies") at him when he comes in scantily clad

Tickle!

Keep something handy for chewing

Help him when he gets stuck in the spare crib

Snuggle with her when she's just waking up

Give her a bottle of bubbles

Always, always, taste her food if she offers it to you

Let him sit in a big boy chair

Mangos!

Beverly is home in the states now. I have broken the always, always taste her food first. She plays with it first, dips it in juice, mixes it in all kind of creative ways... but the worst, she tastes it and gets it all soggy before offering it to you. I have told her that I have a rule about already chewed food, but I don't know how to say it in Creole. Too funny ~
