Day 10 of 20: Yeah, more babysitting

23 Feb

And you thought this trip would be party party party.

For some reason on this “vacation” I’ve been doing a lot of “babysitting”. For example, today I was responsible for the tending and feeding of several (two) small children. Lately I’ve been very popular with this particular line of work and I have no idea why this is.

Case in point: on Saturday I was confronted by the parents of my previous ward who were not very happy with my services from this past Thursday. Their “nanny-cam” captured this image of me (right when I was blinking, of course) and they claimed I was sleeping on the job.

First of all – that’s ridiculous. Nanny-cam? Do I look like a nanny? I certainly don’t feel like one. And second – did you not check my references? No? That’s because I have none (well actually I do now – it’s you guys).

Anyway, this afternoon all I had to do was go to the grocery store and purchase ingredients for the supper for the two children I mentioned in the second paragraph of this post. My thinking was: when I was a child I never got to choose the meals (even on my birthday) so I thought it would be nice if I let the children do the shopping this time.

After my experience on Thursday I decided to protect myself and photo-document the whole thing.

After my experience on Saturday I decided to protect myself and photo-document the whole thing.

You can clearly see the kids are choosing these items under their own free will.

And everything worked out great. Kids are happy. So am I. And isn’t that what really matters?
