Today, I helped my cousin-in-law watch her children and the children of two of her sisters.
I. loved. it.
I really, really, really enjoy playing with and taking care of kids. I’ve really been missing it, too. hanging out with kiddos has been a huge part of my life, but after you’re in college people just don’t ask you to babysit anymore….unless you are a nanny [which I was].
I was talking to the husband after I got home and said something about how I wasn’t sick of kids yet because I’m not a mother.
and he said, “I don’t think you’ll ever get sick of them…” (sweet, right?) “…..it takes a certain lack of maturity to enjoy a lack of years.”
then he started giggling maniacally and gave me a big fat hug and kiss.
he sure is a tease. I love him a lot : )
PS – I asked him what that statement says about him, trying to tease him back (he’s six years my senior)…he just laughed and said “That you’re AWESOME.”
I can’t win.
Love — Rach
