babysitting

One morning before Halloween, Mrs. PolkaDotsandPuppies needed a sitter.  I volunteered.  I don't know. Everyone needs to have a morning with four kids under four at some point in their life, right?  So I maybe was a little fearful that she would come back to find me sitting at my kitchen table totally defeated drinking a vodka and sprite at 11am while the kids ran around me in circles.  I decided that the best way to prevent that lovely little scene would be to plan some serious activities and keep the kids busy.

We started by making muffins.  Nothing fancy.  Just a mix with some added blueberries.  Then we carved some pumpkins.  I was way nervous about the pumpkin carving being crazy messy.  It actually wasn't bad.  None of the kids were totally into the gobbity goop.  jack wanted a mean face on his. I had no idea how to carve a mean face.  Last we made mini pizzas.

I think the kids had fun.  They all behaved really well.  I didn't get a chance to change out of my pj's or change my kids out of their pj's so I'm not entirely sure how I would survive with four kids on a daily basis.  I'm not always sure how I survive with two on a daily basis.










































P.S. Just so you know, the tv was on the toddler music channel. We weren't watching Spongebob the whole time.
