Babysitting is not my calling


I am currently babysitting my two year old niece.

My sister is about to produce her next child. Any day now, a little nephew will join us. So, sis is running around, finishing up stuff that needs to get done prior to his birthday and I'm on babysitting duty.

Honestly, I'm not good at it, but she's still in one piece and so am I. So far.

We went outside to play a little while ago and I couldn't really stop her from having a great time, splashing around in the bit of water that was left in her kiddie pool. And then putting a bucket kinda dripping wet onto her head.

I mean, she's pretty convincing with her adorable language that only she understands, you know? And after playing at the park for awhile, I was a tad bit tired. Now, she's watching Barney (thank goodness for purple dinos) and tearing apart a package for a stuffed animal that she dropped in the dog's water bowl earlier.

That's okay, right?

What's important is she's discovering hat fashion early.

At least she's not a baby. Babies are friggin' weird.

If after a day with you she doesn't end up bleeding then I'd say you did a pretty good job.

RASSLES. Babies aren't freaking weird. Get ahold of yourself. But you know what ARE weird? Cats.

Cats are WEIRD.

Man, keeping them from killing themselves is all you can do at that age. I consider my day as a parent successful if I can get the boy to bed in one piece. So, yeah, well done.
