The Adventures of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie Has A Crush
When asked about the model for Baby Jaimie I've always replied by saying she is me when I was a child. Baby Jaimie replied to that response recently by saying, "Nuh-uh!" At first I thought she was just saying that to be abstinent, but after talking with her for a while I learned Baby Jaimie and I may look a like, but the similarities basically end there.
We both love sports, but she is more of a hands on type of a person. I prefer playing too, but I am perfectly content to watch a baseball game on television or in person. Baby Jaimie can't sit still long enough to watch one inning. She also has difficulty sitting through movies and forget about NASCAR. Baby Jaimie can't understand why anyone would watch for hours as cars go in circles. I, on the other hand, can't get enough of NASCAR. Go Kasey Kahne!
I have loved books for as long as I can remember. Before I could read by myself story time where I was read to was my favorite time of day. My favorite was the Amelia Bedelia series. There were a lot of funny pictures, as were the stories. The thing I liked most about them? I could get a whole story read to me in one sitting.
Baby Jaimie's favorite book series is Diary of a Wimpy Kid. To understand her fascination I read her favorite book in the series, School Daze. It was a great book, but far different from the books I was reading at her age, which is six. And it's not just the illustrations that are different, this book is two hundred and seventeen pages long. It's a fast read, but still, I'd never chosen a thick book by choice at that age.
Even our tastes in baked goods are different. Anyone who knows me know I love cookies. Baby Jaimie will sneak them if that's all she can get her hands on, but she prefers cake.
After my talk with Baby Jaimie I realized from now on I'm going to have to change my answer when I'm asked how I came up with the character of Baby Jaimie. The original concept was to model her after myself, but somewhere along the way she developed into her own person. Now I'm like the rest of you, I can't wait to see where she goes and what she does next. Guess we will find out together when The Adventures of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie Loses a Tooth comes out later this month.
From the minute she met him everyone thought Baby Jaimie's first crush was
Derek. Derek even thought so. That's why he asked her first grade teacher,
Mrs. Smith if he could come visit her. The day of the visit didn't go as
planned. While Derek was introducing himself a new student, Jack, entered
the room and stole everyone's attention. Especially Baby Jaimie's. For
that reason Derek took an instant disliking to the new kid. Baby Jaimie is
forced to choose between Derek and Jack and she doesn't know what to do.
Is there a way to combine old friends with new friends? Can't they all
just get along? Find out in The Adventures of Baby Jaimie: Baby Jaimie Has
