When babies and toddlers come onto my radar, I go crazy with joy.  Sure I admire them.  Sometimes I advise the parents to write down every word of their eloquent speeches, as we did with our offsprings.

A guy resprayed my wife's car.  For 5 minutes his daughters (2 + 5) at the window waved at us - total strangers.  Thereafter every month I brought them treats.

Now I am fine-tuning a PC with Windows 7 and Windows 10.  Then I will fill it with kiddy movies and animations, plus civilized music. Then I will deliver it to the kids with a monitor, keyboard, mouse and cables.  I built it from spare parts.  My wife reckons 5 PCs are too many for our house.

My daughter used her bike only 3 or 4 times so she wants me to sell it.  Its been hanging in the garage ceiling for 3 years. Its in mint condition.  I might give it to the said kiddies free.

And the "total stranger" who painted your wife's car doesn't find this creepy?

The bible says "ask and you will receive".   Well for decades, I prayed for offsprings to help me relax.   Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

To answer your question: - no,  I am hardly a daily pest.  Even a blind guy would know his offsprings are adorable - made in God's image.   My conscience tells me to help kids from my tribe, partly due to their scarcity value.  Its no longer safe for civilized kids to play on the street so most are confined indoors.  Therefore, they may wish to watch animations or become PC literate.  There are 3 who can use it. One is still a baby and the others are about 3 and 6.  If it makes the little ones happy, I am between Cloud 9 and 7th Heaven.  I have 3 slabs of chocolate in my pocket to deliver today but the PC is not yet ready.

Their father's brother-in-law lives across the street and knows us well.   His own kids, got hosed down by our son (@ toddler age) when passing our fence. 

When I was a kid, i did not have fancy stuff.  The first time I saw a hair-dryer, I assumed it was a sci-fi gun.

Our culture has an endearing tradition whereby kids address adult friends of the family as "auntie" and "uncle" despite not being related.  It makes us feel like a million dollars, especially while you have no kids of your own.

It's the same with Aboriginal culture.
