Why Four Year Olds Aren't Your Best Choice for Babysitting

It's inevitable, sometimes Little Lamb needs to be left in the living room by herself while I attend to one of her sisters in another room. Little Lamb's going through a massive "If you leave me alone, I'm going to scream until you come back" phase, so when I had to attend to Rabbit in another room, I asked Bluebird if she'd sit next to Little Lamb and talk to her so she wouldn't be lonely. Bluebird agreed and I walked out of the room to the conversation of "Do you want to be my best friend?"

I was finishing up with Rabbit when Little Lamb started squealing in a happy, yet slightly scared manner. I made my way out to the living room and found the spot that I had left the two of them deserted. A quick glance around and I found Bluebird sitting next to her princess desk, with Little Lamb sticking out from underneath it! I asked Bluebird , in an incredulous tone, "Did you pick her up and carry her over here?!?!"

And Bluebird looked up at me as though I were crazy, scoffed, and then said, "No, I used her as a wheelbarrow."

  1. Too funny! That would have been something to see. Well, at least Emmy stayrd with Rachel; Bekka just follows me around when I ask her to stay with Alexander. (He does the crying thing too when we leave the room.)

  2. Ok, that is so funny! Zane did that stuff when Lily was a baby too. Now that she's a little older...he is ALWAYS picking her up and carrying her around. The other day, I looked over, and saw him lift her up, then throw her up in the air and drop her on her bum! lovely!

  3. LOL, that reminds me of when I heard clunk, clunk, clunk, clunk, while doing the dishes (the boys were playing in the front room). I ran over there and the 2 year old was dragging the baby down the stairs by his hair because he "wanted to play downstairs"
