Babysitting Boy Style
I spent several hours today shopping and running errands in the 'city' and left one of my boys in charge. And I have to say that ever since I have had children old enough to tend the younger ones that my boys take the cake in the creative ways they've come up with in order to see that the littler ones are in 'safe keeping' and out of harms way. This is how my boy today tended to one of his little sisters while I was away. He and the other's were busy raking up leaves while at the same time making sure she was 'safe!' At least that's what they told me when I asked them why she was in the trailer! "We didn't want her to run off or get lost!"
They piled leaves and toys into the trailer that sits a bit too high off the ground for a young one to climb out of and yet smart enough to not want to jump from it!
She seemed perfectly content as far as I could tell but at the same time she was thrilled to be set free again by her mama!
She bolted the second her feet hit the ground!
A few more pictures of the creativity of my boys and their babysitting woes, I mean ways!
How about you moms. Do your older children find creative and not so creative ways when tending to younger siblings?
