Adventures of the babysitter continue...

Nathan and I are all done babysitting 
overall it was pretty fun 
and crazy at the same time 
would we do it again yes 
for more than 4 days no
We find that since being home I am still singing 
Hurry, hurry drive the firetruck, ding ding ding ding ding 
and Nathan still thinks he hears the baby crying or one of the kids
lessons we have learned:
1. Travel as much as you can before having kids 
2. Sleep as much as you can before having kids 
3. If you don;t like cleaning wait till you have are constantly cleaning 
4. It takes forever to get ready in the morning with kids 
5. Why are strollers so complicated

Welcome to parenthood

We are almost done with babysitting. The parents come back tomorrow night. Here are a few more lessons in parenthood that we have learned.

#1: the baby is very opinionated. First he wants eggs for breakfast. Then it's top rammen.

#2: even on Saturday the baby will wake up at 6:30am (no sleep for parents)

#3: parents don't eat hot food. You are always getting something for someone.

#4: don't plan on going to the pool if it isn't heated, the kids won't want to stay long.

#5: Don't break the baby's breadstick in half, he wants a whole one and will throw a tantrum throwing the breadstick with sauce on the wall.

Lesson 1: don't sweep the floor right before everyone gets is just gonna get dirty... especially after dinner

Lesson 2: child locks are amazing...especially on the fridge

Lesson 3: food and a ball can solve any problem.

Lesson 4: the baby will throw his salad with dressing at his brothers

Lesson 5: parents don't sleep in
