Nico and his dads

I love the transformation children go through when meeting someone for the first time. At first their quiet, sort of checking you out, not letting you into their playground to frolic. People always ask me “What do you do” ” How do you get kids to relax and open up”? Well, you just have to be yourself, easy-going, playful, and allow your kid side to come out – and that’s easy for me. Nico was shy at first. But after we played a few rounds of tag on the beach he was ready to go. I also know that Grandma was making bunny ears behind my back and of course, my assistant playing the accordion works every time!
