I love the kids…..I lied I don’t love the kids. I am going to be real babies scare me. I know I have 2 but my baby days are long behind me. I don’t change dirty diapers, I don’t have to babyproof my home, I don’t have to cut food up, and I don’t have to bath or change anyone’s poop. I also don’t have to feed anyone…so a friend of mine asked me to babysit a few weeks ago. This is the first time in over 2 years I have kept someone under 2, of course she had some questions and so did I….
Friend: Hey Kita, I am in a bind can you babysit my precious for me this Friday.
Me: *panics and tries to come up with an excuse*
Friend: I’ll pay you…..
Me: How much? That will depend on if I’m busy or not.
Friend: How does $60 sound for the day?
Me: That’s not enough but since I like you that’s fine.
Friend: Ok I have some questions because of course I know you haven’t had to deal with kids in a while
Me: Oh goody I have some for you also. You go first
Friend: Well we feed the baby organic things so I will send you with that stuff. Is your house kind of child proof because I can bring plugs and stuff to put in the walls? We also would like to know do you have child appropriate toys?
Me: Great yes send the organic stuff (we ate chick fil A…that’s kind of organic right), No I don’t have any plugs and no need to bring any. No I don’t do toys….I would suggest you don’t bring the ones you have because I will take the batteries out
Me: *now it’s my turn to ask questions* Do you have a jail pen, I mean play pen for the baby? Also, ask yourself if you truly want someone like me keeping your baby because I don’t normally follow any rules. When is the babies nap time because I like to nap also and I need to coordinate our napping schedule?
Friend: Yes I have the play pen why do you need it?
Me: Cause….I don’t do kids wandering all over my house. I got thangs to do. I don’t have time to be worrying about where the baby is at.
Friend: Ok I will bring that and she usually takes naps around noon
Me: Usually……this throws my nap way off…..
I ended up keeping the baby and we did nap. She went back alive and well!
Fall weather and Picnics…..I don’t know if I can do it unless I can bring a heater
