A clash of schedules this evening found me babysitting for a half hour! My brother and sister-in-law landed breathlessly with my nephew with about five minutes notice to me. I joked, “Are you sure you trust me with your boy?” and sis-in-law replied sarcastically, “I’m so worried!” It’s nice to be trusted.
Youngest Nephew is about five months old and a very happy baby with bright blue eyes. We had a fun time playing with his toys and watching the squirrels play on the front lawn. He was a little overdue for a nap, so when he started fussing I took him for a walk about the house and he just settled happily into my arms.
There is nothing like a happy, cooing baby. And the smell! What is it about that baby smell, huh?
No, I have no interest in having my own. Being an aunt is awesome: you get to have fun, but can hand the baby back when you’ve had your fill.Share on Facebook
