I have talked earlier about
being a nanny. And it is pretty
much the best forms of money
for a college student.
(Besides being a stripper...)
The past week I played mama
to my four year old cherub I have been
sitting for since he was a teeny tiny
toddler. How exhausting!
It was like no other experience.
I have been with him for a weekend...
but Friday to Sunday is
a whole lot different than Saturday
to Friday. Golllly.
Not only does the child not want
to sleep...ever...but his energy
level is way above the norm.
Not to mention his social life is
much more extensive than mine at
the ripe age of 23.
From skating to swimming
with a little pre-school in between...
I was on the go, go, go more than
any go-go dancer has ever been.
When I finally got some
"me" time while he was learning
at school...I just wanted to go back
to his house and sleep. My motivation
of doing anything had plummeted
Taking him to dinner with a friend of
mine seemed like a much better idea
in my head, than it turned out to be.
The waitresses and people around
us all loved him...however, my friend and
I smiled back to hide our clenched teeth
and laughed at the situation as well.
Friday morning came rather quickly
believe it or not. I couldn't have been more
I love him to death...but I couldn't wait to
hand him back to his parents and
Four year olds are selfish...wake up
way too early, and demand attention.
Good thing he is cute as hell.
Mommy for a week was
extremely entertaining and
It made my boyfriend happy
to hear that the children I constantly talk
about wanting to have, have been
pushed far back into the future.
Screw the pill. As far as I'm concerned...
babysitting is the best form of birth control.
