Little Bits: Adventures in Babysitting6:00 PM
I mentioned the other day that I had been asked to babysit my friends Maria & Cix's little girl Serenity, here is some proof that I am okay around small children...sometimes. Many of you know that Louie (the big furry bastard on the right) is my BABY. I love this guy to bits, but he has issues around small children, bikes, cars, mopeds, skateboards, etc. He is scared of everything. He lets you know by barking his big fat head off at whatever it is he feels threatened by. He not only barked at Serenity, he hid behind me for almost an hour, terrified of someone 1/8th of his size.
Serenity is the best kid to babysit, hands-down. She is very chill, she never cried (until it was time to go home), didn't freak out when her mom left, understood when I said "no", and didn't even balk when Louie barked at her. Eventually, she found a stash of animal crackers, and proceeded to feed them to Louie, and he then thawed. As you can see in these pictures, is still a little: "Mom, what is this? Am I being replaced?", however, they teamed up against me and proceeded to terrorize my living room. It was fun.
