The important job

23 Jul

Today, I am looking after a baby.

“Make sure she has her nap,” the mom told me.

“Ok, I’ll make sure.  What time does she nap?” I asked.

“She’ll tell you when she’s tired.  And when you have a snack, give Leah one too.”


“If she runs out of her food, just make her some more and put it in this bowl.  Make sure you use this spoon.” She told me as she pointed to the baby’s own bowl and spoon.

“You need to close the blinds when she has her nap, she doesn’t like it too bright at nap time.”


“If she gets sick, just put her to bed for  half an hour, and then she will feel better.  You might have to give her some medicine.  If she tells you she’s cold, please put her coat on.”

“Ok, in bed if she’s sick, coat if she’s cold.  Got it. Anything else?”

“Make sure you give her her favourite toy to play with,” she said as she gave me one of those plastic rings with other rings, attached.

“And she likes her dummy.  Don’t lose her dummy.”

“Ok, anything else?”

“I put her high chair and all the things you’ll need next to your desk.  Her cradle and her stroller, and her high chair, and all of her other things are there.  And don’t forget to get some new batteries so that she talks and tells you what she wants.  You’ll look after her really well, won’t you Mommy?”

“Yes Hannah, of course I will.  I will take good care of her while you’re at preschool.”

    Did you make sure Leah was in a different place when Hannah got home than she was when she left so that she would see that you had paid some attention to her doll?

      I did. I even put her in different places and took photos to show Hannah. She had the biggest smile on her face when I showed her the photos, and it only took about 1 minute of my time 🙂

    I was thinking… Wow, this mother has quite a list of instructions. I don’t think I’d want to babysit for her more than once. haha

    Leah is very loved!
