Babysitting Tales

A while ago, I mentioned that I was planning on starting a new blog for my babysitting stories. Well.... I've decided against that. Mostly, because of the logistics of starting a new blog, getting new readers and well, updating twice as much! So, I'm just going to post those stories here!

I need your help to come up with a title for this feature, though! Comment with your thoughts and enjoy the first installment below!

**Obviously, I reserve the option to change names and slight details!**

Bath Time Ruminations

Bath time is always the time for stimulating conversation with Jack and Beau. We’ve had very important conversations in there, about topics ranging from daily recaps to their future aspirations. Daily recaps tend to go like this:

Me: “What did you guys do today?”

Jack: “Beau, scoot back! I’m in front!”

Beau: “Jack, stop pushing me, owww!”

Stern Katie voice: “Boys.”

Jack: “We went to Ollie’s birthday party.”

Beau: “Were you there?”

Me: “No, I was busy earlier today, I couldn’t make it.”

Jack: “Do you know Ollie?”

Me: “I know OF him, because you tell me stories, but I’ve never met him.”

Jack: “Well, you should meet him, he has yellow hair and his sister is Katelyn.”

Beau: “Yeah and he knows all about Superman, and he has a light saber, too!”

Me: “He sounds awesome, guys. Shampoo time!”

Talking about their future aspirations is pretty fun, too.

Me: “If you could be anything, what would you be?”

Jack: “Lightning McQueen.”

Me: “You mean you’d be a race car driver?”

Jack: “No, Lightning McQueen.”

Me: “He’s a car.”

Jack: “Yes.”

Me: “Beau, what about you?”

Beau: “A saduba diver!”

Me: “A scuba diver, that sounds exciting, why?”

Beau: “I want to swim with fish and stingrays, but they wouldn’t sting me because we’d be friends and there’d be no sharks. I don’t like sharks.” He looks around the bathtub.

Me: “Well, there are no sharks in there, buddy, and wow, that sounds like a lot of fun.”

Jack: “I changed my mind! I don’t want to be Lightning McQueen.”

Me: “What do you want to be?”

Jack: “I want to be like Daddy and make conference calls all day!”

Me: “Is that what you think Daddy does?”

Jack: looking at me like I’m a bit slow, “That IS what he does.”

I hope you enjoyed reading about these guys as much as I like hanging out with them! More to come. :) Don't forget to leave your ideas for a feature title!
