Incidents & Accidents

Wednesday, December 30, 2009


Today I had the great pleasure of spending most of the day with one of my favorite smallest humans, the Peanut. I have a great fondness for the little munchkin, so when her parents called last night to ask if I were free today and could watch her, I was absolutely delighted to accept.

I'm also irrationally proud of myself that although it's been something like 15 years since I changed diapers with any regularity (I did a lot of babysitting as a kid, which now seems like a lifetime ago), Hathor complimented me on my mastery of V's cloth ones. In addition, I got ridiculously lucky and the Peanut went down for both a morning and an afternoon nap--the latter following nearly an hour of playing quietly in her crib.

When I related these things to David tonight, he said, "Somebody's full of herself!" He's just glad I don't want one of my own.

I did take a few pictures on the camera phone, which the Peanut likes better than me (it's red and shiny!). I don't have any way to upload them, though, having left my card reader at home, so this one's from Thanksgiving.

Tomorrow, we head across the mountains for Second Christmas.

I'm just glad you survived the Peanut-sitting. Thanks again for saving the day. The Peanut loves you and your shiny phone.

Ted said...

And just in case we didn't say thank you enough, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Ellen said...

I've never changed a diaper...I'd like to keep it that way.

Is Second Christmas like Second Breakfast?

CëRïSë said...

Adrianna, you totally read my mind! Second Breakfast all the way.

Ellen, apparently it's like riding a bike... but generally less entertaining.

And Teed and Hathor, you are so much more than welcome--I really did have a great time!

I have no idea how to do a cloth diaper. With those giant, scary pins?

I think I've seen it done on my baby sister, but I doubt I could replicate it.

Well done!

Leah, I remember seeing those big, scary pins used on my baby brother, but the new cloth diapers use these awesome grippy-things that completely eliminate the possibility of pokings (thank goodness!). The one I used looked like these ones.

I'm just learning of T&H's needs for babysitters and am so glad you were able to help them out. Wish I were close enough to spend more time with V.
