Surprise Baby-sitting

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,


then



maybe

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.

oh my god!!! She's huge! holy crap! I think i'm headed towards all of you this weekend- will anyone be around? Would we like to trek to sushi, maybe sat. after shop closes? I would kill for fugakyu, but if y'all are craving something closer to home, let me know. I just need to see the friends!

Isn't she? She ate that whole ice cream without dripping a bit and she'd eaten over half of it before I thought to pick up my camera!

I would absolutely like to go get sushi with you. I'll go to Fugakyu if you're driving but would rather stay here if we're on the T. Shop closes as 6pm.
