I may not have any children of my own but that hasn’t stopped me from making quite a career of borrowing other people’s children. Saturday night, the mother of one of my favorite borrowees called to say that she and her boyfriend were headed out to a really fancy dinner with his family and her childcare had fallen through. Could I baby-sit? But, of course!
That is how my friend Meret ended up spending the evening!
As is the Auntie’s prerogative, I bought the child an ice cream cone.
Which seemed like a good idea,
not so much.
Not to worry, Meret settled down, we read Russell the Sheep and then she had a nice nap on the couch until mommy got back. All’s well that ends well!
I have at least four more UFO’s to report. I found them all when I was reorganizing the scrap yarn area. I’ll have pictures soon.
