You take one look at this adorable face and you can’t help but want to hold this little girl and kiss those cheeks. I was so excited last week when I got to to travel with one of my good friends and her precious daughter. Two days hanging out with them gave me quite a window into the reality of life for expat families with small children.
All this stopping, touching, grabbing, nagging and picture taking wears on my friend’s nerves. After only two days of watching all this 24/7 attention I wanted to yell, “STOP IT, all of you… she is not an animal at the zoo or a circus freak… she is a little girl. Leave her alone”.
