Happy New Year everyone! Obviously the world did not end and everything is peachy.
My brother convinced me to go with him to a friends house yesterday where we were surprised with our hostess babysitting three children between the ages of 8 months to 6 years old. I'm not really good with kids myself. So needless to say, when the oldest girl decided I was her new best friend all I could do was stand there and stare at my brother like "Help me there's a child latched onto me! What do I do?!" I also discovered that I'm really not good at lowering my explanations to the comprehension level of a six-year-old. At All. The funny thing is, she decided that I was going to be the princess when we were playing and I kept it to myself that I would rather be a knight or something. Lol. (I never really wanted to be a princess when I was a kid either.)
And then they made me hold the baby, who like all babies, was fascinated with my hair until he finally fell asleep. That actually wasn't too bad though, at least he wasn't crying. Last time I had to babysit a baby I couldn't get him to stop crying no matter what I did and little baby tears are like the saddest thing ever.
