I'm babysitting today. I picked up my niece last nightand am trying to be a good uncle and take care of her.
I can barely type this post cause she's trying to crawl over the keyboard now.
I don't know how you parents do it.
It's not that's complicated. It's just that it's constant. The baby needs attention like the whole time it's awake. Now everything I do has the extra effort of taking stuff out of the babies hand or mouth.
If you turn your head for like two seconds she'll make a beeline for the nearest sharpest object.
When you hear about kids hurting themselves at home while the parents are there and think wow those people must be messed up. I feel their pain now. It's impossible to watch the baby 24 hours a day and have any kind of life.
And I thought my dog was needy.
Okay... time out. She's screaming now.
(wait five minutes)
Okay she's going to sleep. My house is quiet again. I almost forgot how silent it usually is around here. Ahhh. Peace and quiet... at least until it wakes up again. Take care.
How about some pictures.
