Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Wiggles

I'm not naturally a kid person. I was never one of those girls who babysat a lot as a teen (didn't at all, in fact), and though an older sister, my younger brother is only 3 years younger. I'm pretty sure I won't wind up with any of my own. Despite all of this, I have somehow found myself babysitting 4 wee ones a week from today.

You read correctly. Next Tuesday, I'll be babysitting two babies (somewhere around 8 months old) and two toddlers (approximately 3 years old). Thankfully I will have help and will not be facing this squadron of screams alone. While the little one took a liking to me at our last meeting (I personally think he just thought he could get some milk out of these boobs), his older sister did not take to kindly to my trying to get her to dance to Sexyback.

The highlight of the only other time I babysat was realizing all of the cool words I could teach a two year old to say and how she was totally into getting my Diet Coke for me ; )

There's a chance it will just be two (instead of four), but somehow I still don't think that's going to get me out of having to watch the Wiggles.


  1. Serena, it's going to be SO MUCH FUN!
    I'll play with them until they're so tired they fall asleep right on the spot!

    I really cannot wait!!

  2. Please take pictures.

  3. Oh, you can count on it!

  4. "squadron of screams" - nice!

    i love babysitting because you can lay on the floor and play "twister" and "guess who".

  5. Well, if it makes you feel any better, the Wiggles usually come on pretty darn early in the morning. We usually miss them altogether. So maybe you'll get lucky that way. :)

  6. You will learn SO much. Trust me.
