I Survived!

Today I…. Babysat.

I actually babysat all through high school (… and middle school) with no issues but umm… kids aren’t my forte.

And babysitting a family member? That’s a whole different ball game.

True story, the first time I ever picked up my (two and a half year old!) nephew was… last week.

A little scary no?

But I survived.

… oh, and he survived.

Success?!

I think so!

While I was down at the brother’s house babysitting finally the critters stopped arguing among themselves…. and assumed their favorite positions.

Black cat headed to her closet. Fat cat is too old/lazy/fat to jump up there anymore and Fritz isn’t brave enough so she hides here for quiet.

The fat cat retreated to her favorite spot… my parents bed.

… and Fritz… Oh Fritz

Excuse me mom… did you want something? I was sprawling here!!

Oh… the life of a cat. How I wish I was a cat.

Do you find babysitting family is different than strangers kids?

    Babysitting! Awesome 🙂 I am sure you were great!

    Yes…when you babysit for strangers, you babysit and forget. When you babysit for family, the child is still there! However, family is great!

    haha i love the cats they crack me up!

  5. Kids aren’t my forte either. It’s a miracle I’m managing to raise two of my own.
