When my niece and nephew came over to visit, they were pretty shy.
It was understandable because we hadn’t visited in a long time.
My brother wanted to go out with his wife on a little trip for a few days, and we offered to look after their little ones. I kept asking them what they wanted to do, but they would just shrug. I asked them if they wanted to color in coloring books and they said “sure.” I had them coloring and they were having a blast just doing that. I noticed that they always would relax at the dining room table while just enjoying those books. I prepared them their meals regularly and made sure they were happy. It was strange though, even when I asked if they wanted to watch a movie, they just wanted to remain at the table and color. When I asked them why they wanted to stay in the dining room all the time, they admitted it was because of the cooling air coming from the HVAC vent above. They were right, that was one of the most comfortable locations. Then I told them there was another HVAC vent above the couch in the living room. When they went to check it out, they found their new favorite spot to relax! They watched all kinds of children’s movies like Moana and Shrek, and they actually had a wonderful time. We were able to bond a little too when I took them to the park, but they wanted to get back shortly because they missed being comfortable with the air conditioning.
