I don't think it's a secret that I love babies! In fact, we've talked about it many times before. Well, I'm not the only one around here that loves babies. Does that surprise you? This is the look I get from Teach and Princess (and Crafty) every time we have a baby around here.
So last week my friend needed a sitter and Baby Doll and I were just spending the day at home so we offered to watch her two boys, one is 3 and the other is about 6 months. They were good boys and didn't give us any trouble. In six or seven hours the baby didn't cry even once!
But something bothered me. It was the first time I really understood that Baby Doll knows almost nothing about real babies. I know, I know, SOMEBODY has to be the youngest... Things I took for granted, like changing diapers, burping, feeding, she was extremely interested in everything and totally clueless.
I thought about it all day. Then I sent my friend a text and offered to watch her boys one day a week. It was a little scary confessing to my sweetie that I had just complicated my life, but after today, I'm thinking maybe I actually simplified my life. It was so nice to remember the things that are important, like teaching my children family values...
...and I sure loved snuggling a little one again, even if he isn't really mine.
