A Babysitting Adventure

Jane, Clara and I packed in a whirlwind of activity for a last minute babysitting adventure for my nephew Jonas.  We headed down the driveway as I double checked that we had all the important stuff.

Two kids? Check (Ivy and John had to stay home and go to school and work.)

The blankets? Check

Wallet? Check

Necessities accounted for, I turned to the back seat and my babysitting assistants…

Me:”Ok girls, are you ready for an adventure!?”

Clara: “Yeah it’s going to be excellent!”

Me: “Oh yeah? How come?”

Clara: “Because Ivy’s not coming so she can’t hit me and Jane is too far away so she can’t hit me either!!!”

And she was right, it was pretty excellent.


Jonas, being the ridiculously smiley, happy, and quiet baby that he is, was a pretty easy going customer even if he did make my two girls seem like crazy, loud hooligans in comparison.

I can’t wait for him to start talking and running, I suspect that there is a whole lot of noise and trouble just waiting to come out.

And if not, well, we can always babysit again and my girls can teach him how it’s done!

    Very adorable pictures 🙂 babysitting is always fun when the baby in question is easy going and non-fussy :p

      Indeed! Otherwise that whole 2 year old plus a baby thing would have been a bit overwhelming. I wouldn’t say it was easy but I remember it being worse.

    Children give the best reason for things being excellent. 🙂
