I’ve finally done it.
I’m getting a babysitter.
Albeit, it’s only for two days. But, I’ve never had anyone else look after my Boo-Boo. Needless to say I’m a little anxious.
When I decided to go back to work, we figured that we wouldn’t put our son through daycare. I dropped down to part time and coordinated my schedule around my hubby’s. Whoever wasn’t working was on child patrol. Thankfully my workplace was understanding and flexible.
Well, scheduling blunders were bound to happen. Somehow (totally my hubby’s fault) we ended up working on the same days. Hence, the need for someone else to look after our son.
So, I enlisted the help of my mother and cousin. Although I’m sure that they’re both more than capable, I couldn’t help but write out explicit instructions regarding my son’s care.
Is saying, “Microwave for 22 seconds and stir to eliminate hot spots”, too anal?
I am not a “Helicopter Mother”. I just have standards.
Anyways, I’m sure that everything will be fine. Luckily, my son isn’t fussy. I don’t even care if he watches TV (the Treehouse channel of course!) the whole time.
I just don’t understand why my mother got all in huff when I said that her place wasn’t childproof. Hello? You haven’t had little kids running around in over twenty years! Don’t blame me if Boo-Boo knocks over a vase or eats a plant.
Are orchids poisonous?
