So my cousin's wife is in town and she had car trouble. She had to spend the night along with her two kids - a girl who's two and a boy who's three. While I'm pretty much a kid myself, I'm not really into kids. I can deal with them for an hour or two and then I can't take it anymore.
I didn't understand what they were saying and basically needed a translator to talk to them, they want to touch everything and the only thing that entertains them is cartoons. I've never seen so many cartoons since I was a kid myself!
And what's up with the crying? Crying while they are going to sleep, crying when they wake up? All the time crying! How hard is life when you're two?!?!
I made sure the little girl knew there was only room for one drama queen in this house!
Last night, I covered them with stickers and sprayed the little girl with Serendipitous
and this morning I taught had her to layer Starlights
with Demeter's Hot Toddy.
I tried to serve them healthy snacks like popcorn and applesauce but they really weren't interested until I pulled out the container of Nutella. I got the kids hooked on Nutella and crackers.
I was very good and didn't eat any myself - thank you very much.
I certainly hope I haven't opened the pathway to childhood obesity for them!
Safe to say I don't want kids anytime soon. Can I count running after them as my workout for today? I'm seriously exhausted!
