More powerful than the NHMFL magnet and it works on people!
I had to pick up the Wee One from daycare yesterday because she was running a slight temperature and "generally irritable" (apparently our daycare only deals with happy kids). On the way back to my office I walked through the business office of our college with the Wee One in my arms and before I knew it every office was empty and I was surrounded. The Dean's making funny faces at her, the CFO of the college is tickling her - it was like the whole place momentarily lost their minds. It's nice that there is generally a pro-family vibe here, but now I know that if I have to run the gauntlet of the business hallway with the Wee One again, I will do it at a full sprint or risk being there for 30 minutes and becoming "generally irritable" myself.
Grumpy kids love to be prodded by strangers.
