Apostrophy Designs: Adventures in [Over Night] Babysitting

Adventures in [Over Night] Babysitting


I babysat for my sister, Tami, this weekend while her husband rode in LoToJa.

I was really excited to babysits because I thought that this would be a good chance to really hone in on some mothering skills...

Step 1- Let them drink Root Beer.
Step 2- Don't let them nap, ever.
Step 3- Let them run like Wild Indians and get really dirty, so you can watch a baseball game.
Step 4- More Root Beer + Chicken Nuggets.
Step 5- Have a Splashin' Bath Time [ Sorry Bri ]

What did all these steps accomplish? A 9:00pm bed time and they slept until 8:00am...now these are my kind of kids!

Did I mention I am missing the sweet Mini Van I got to drive for a day??

Think it would be terribly weird of me to buy a Mini Van instead of the Mazda we've been eyein'?

If I knew where you lived I would seriously bring by some Root Beer. Which kind do you prefer? A&W, Mug, or Barq's? I enjoy my Root Beer with a little milk in it. It makes it taste like a Root Beer freeze.

You are too funny with the root beer! I love it!

AND, I totally think you should get a van. It would be so cool! Haha!

Those are some cute kiddos! It sounds to me like you've got this whole motherhood thing down. I can never get my nieces and nephews to go to bed after giving them sugar soda. You must be a natural.
