I'm in charge of the kiddos this afternoon. My sister's kiddos, that is. When I first arrived here, all four of them were gone to friends' houses. Friends' houses with pools. I was told that they would probably be there all afternoon, and I most likely wouldn't see them...because who could tear a kid away from a friend's house with a POOL?
Guess what. Two of the youngest kiddos came home within minutes of their mom leaving me here all alone by myself to supervise...and brought a friend. Did I mention I'm here all alone and left to supervise? I'm keeping an eye on them playing in the backyard now.
First they were working on creating a water slide out of their swing set slide by hosing it down. That didn't seem like such a good idea to me, so I nixed that one. Then their game turned to throwing a bubble maker toy up and down the slide about 100 times. They laughed every single time, which puzzles me. What is so funny about that? I was concerned for moments that they were going to stand on a Frisbee and slide down the slide, but I guess I jumped the gun on that one. They were just going to slide the Frisbee down the slide. Can you spell P-A-N-I-C?
Looks like maybe they're going to run through the Blue's Clues sprinkler now. Nope. Guess not. I just saw the hose disappear. Hmmm. Wonder what they're up to?
Say a prayer for me. Having the friend here is stressing me out.
