I received a call at 6:30am this morning that my SIL's babysitter was in the hospital last night and she needed someone to care for my little niece.....YEAH! I was so excited that JJ and I got to play today with his cousin.
Then the terror set in: I still had to get to work at 3pm. Would I be able to get dressed, eat breakfast, Pee with TWO babies?
I jumped in the shower, got dressed and put make up on while I had just one baby (JUST one....HA!). My niece arrived with big smiles ready to play. JJ smiled and laughed at the craziness yet to come.
My SIL then goes thru the instructions for my niece which include: feed her cereal (WHAT? OMG!), go ahead and just strip her down because the cereal goes everywhere," I just set her on my knee and feed her" she says (Again, WHAT?).....
Well, after all the instructions of bottles and diapers and naptime etc...she left for work and I stared at the two babies in my house.....trying to look brave so that they would not see my panic!
We settled into the bouncy seat and swing in my kitchen and I "put my big girl panties on" and started to mix rice cereal....I did however leave the little one in her bouncy seat with a bib on (no naked knee sitting in my house today, thank you very much). I start to feed her (she is really funny and LOVES her cereal, tries to grab the spoon but really just spits all the cereal out on herself) then JJ starts to fuss, so I pretend to give him a bite (the last time I did this he GAGGED in a big way so I figured the pretend bite would satisfy him) and go back to feeding my little niece. Then JJ starts to scream (me too, me too)....so I give him a real bite and he LOVES it. So now I had to mix him up his own bowl of cereal and feed one blue spoon bite and then one pink spoon bite.....it was so cute. My niece spit most of hers on her bib but really enjoyed it very much. JJ made faces like I was feeding him something rotten but cried for more. I didn't even use a bib because he just ate it up (and I am not so good with remembering bibs). I think we were both surprised!
I can't wait to try cereal again tonight with Daddy!
Now both babies are sleeping (after a very dramatic crying spell). Each cuddled up in their own bed. And I got to eat a bowl of cereal myself!
what a day! and it's only 11am.
Next will be "tummy time".....
