Thoughts on kids

I'm babysitting right now. I've been here for almost a week and I've got another week to go. A fortnight is a long time to be in charge. Luckily these boys are pretty easy going and like to go do some fun stuff. So far this week we've accomplished a movie, bowling, going to an indoor swimming pool, watching Transformers 1 & 2 and many hours spent on something that looks like a gameboy but is apparently much more advanced. Tonight we decided to stay in. I asked the boys what they wanted to do and they wrote this list:

#4 was accomplised easily ;). Now we are sitting here watching Alvin & the Chipmunks.

Watching kids is hard work. My hat is off to all you mom's who do it 24/7.

I look forward to having kids of my own in the way distant future, but after a long day of cooking, cleaning & entertaining, I'll gladly keep my independence for just a little bit longer.

It's a *little* easier when you have a spouse to share the duties with. I repeat, only a *little* easier!

SO funny! You will have to show that to their Mom and Dad, especially #4. :) It's also makes it easier when they are yours and you know you are stuck together forever, you tend to have a different perspective. :)
