So I’m the world’s greatest babysitter/godmother….
Wanna know what you missed this weekend?
You may have gone to a swanky dinner, or had a romantic weekend with a cute boy ( or girl if that’s how you roll ) but I bet I had a better time.
My best friend and her hubby had a romantic night planned and asked me to sit for them and watch their kids Saturday – deal! A. cause I adore these kids, and really don’t spend enough time with them … and 4. their parents are staunch republicans, and I take every chance I can to speak to them of their dark ways, and try to bring them to the light J
So anyway, I’m on kid duty Saturday thru Sunday morning…..
So here’s what we did, as soon as we got rid of the parents …
1. pulled open the sofa bed fired up the dvd player and watched “Madagascar” and (god help us ) Spy Kids 3-d. the older kid fired up the microwave and made popcorn and we snuggled in for movies ( now to our credit – it was cold and rainy, so there was no choice to play outside )
2. had a little snackage for dinner, the kids wanted to bathe ( ?? I KNOW) so it was a bath for the wee one, and a shower for the older one …
then onto beauty night…. (which we know i love)
3. Mani’s and pedicures…. Complete with glitter ( of course )
4. Then we did the braiding thing so the girls would have wavy hair the next day…some high quality lounging and then playing, I of course let the girls stay up until they could not hold their faces open, the 5 year old crawled on my lap and we sat there for the longest time ( I knew she was sleepy, but I was loving the cuddle so I kept her there ) finally I said “ are you sleepy” and she just nodded, so I asked “are you ready to go to bed” she said “yesh” all sleepy like so we got up and she took my hand and took me to her room –she crawled right up in that bunkbed and kee-rashed.
So the older one and I hung out – watched some trading spaces, then she was making the sleepy face too– and BAM to bed …
( if only I could have gotten mike to calm down like that, I wanted to KILL that pacing dog )
so Sunday morning, I wake up about 20 minutes before the kids…which is good, cause as y’all know – momma don’t wake up so fast ….
So we’re hangin out for a while, I shower up and get cute ( cause, hey, I’m still me ) then we do the ‘reveal’ of the girls waves …. Was fantastic I must say…
Then I ask, what do you want for breakfast, the smaller one says ‘waffles’ – me I’m thinking, great – eggos I can do that easy peasy – but no, it’s not that easy – she wanted full on alphabet shaped waffles …. Which I of course can do ( what CAN’T I do ) and cause I rock like that – I ask ( foolishly ) would you like CHOCOLATE CHIP WAFFLES?!!? ( answer. Doi )
So I make kick ass waffles ….. and coffee ( coffee for me, and necessary – DID I MENTION THE DOG DIDN’T STOP PACING?)
And as soon as breakfast was done and cleaned up ….. garage door goes up –and parents come home.
Top that people…..Good times.
