Adventures in Babysitting

I spent this past weekend with not one but two hot boys. My sister Sarah and her beau Jason had some errr business to do in Las Vegas so my mother, cousin Rebecca and I took on the challenge of babysitting Dax and Morris.  Parenting. Whew. Tough gig. Being responsible for the livelihood of a six and a 20 month old sounded daunting but it turned out to be the best weekend I’ve had in a very long time. As soon as I was able to remove myself from my daily routine and completely focus on the boys the world lit up; partly because my hair was on fire but mostly because of their sweet spirits. These little heroes hit the ground running every morning (even with a shitty diaper, which I thought was quite impressive), they remain engulfed in the present moment, are quick to forgive, and are eager to learn. We may have been in charge, but these lil’ dudes lead the way. I can't wait to have some of my own...when I'm 40.  

 'What's this thing back there? A molar?' 

 'Banana eating contest. GO!'

'I win!!!'  
Me: Please don't choke.

'Now give me your Jambox so I can try and shove that down the hatch too.'

'Just kidding!'

'I'll eat more bananas.'

Mo was trying to figure out why his onesie was on backwards while also channeling his inner Chris Farley.

Later on that day...

Officer: Sir, I'll need you to pull over...

Dax: Say what?

Dax: Screw you officer.

Officer: Sir, you've been charged with drinking and driving. Sir, I'll need you to remain in the vehicle!

Dax: Officer, do you know who I am? ...

I am a young Picasso...

I get chauffeured around with hot chicks...

My GRANDMA is hotter than your wife!

I follow the million second rule and I never get sick...

Here, let me spell it out for you...

Aww yeah baby.

~The End~
