Baby-sitting is not my strong suit....

Which is an understatement.

The other day, I watched my friend's little 3-yr-old for a couple hours. Three hours to be exact. That's all. I've spent more time with her just hanging out, but things were different when it was just me and Emily alone.

It started off alright. We watched some "Gilmore Girls", read a book, went for a walk. Then...things got weird.

Emily started repeating my name over and over and over and over and over...., then started yelling to watch some show that I had no idea what it was or where to find it. The child had gone crazy it seemed.

No, no. It was all me. I had no idea how to entertain a little girl for more than an hour and 1/2. I tried "Wow Wow Wubbzy" and "Blue's Blues", but it didn't work. She was climbing all over me and I was done. DONE!

How sad is that? That I couldn't watch my little Mexidorian baby for more than 2 hours without wanting to never have kids?

Wow! The new birth control.... BABYSITTING! =) Sure is workin' for me....

haha, this is funny. Have you seen that show baby borrowing or something like that. It's used as birth control for young couples. You should check it out....well, I guess you already have so. Yeah, congrats on the full proof birth control! :)

he was talking about his package. about how there was something extra as opposed to not. i guess it was his way of saying, "oh, i see it's stuff. it's a boy."
