Hey, you don’t have kids, do you want to babysit our children?
You have become the childless babysitter. You are asked to look after your friend’s kids, your brother’s kids, your neighbor’s kids because heck, you’re not busy! It’s like they think they are doing you a favor by asking you to mind their child. “Naomi and husband don’t have kids. Let’s do them a favor and let them enjoy ours for a few hours. They are probably doing nothing anyways.”
But truthfully as hard as it is, you do love looking after their babies. You and your partner have a great time, playing with the kids (even if you think about stealing them. Which you won’t). But you have the most kid un-friendly house! What are these kiddies going to play with anyways? Your expensive glass table? Perhaps they would like to play with your awesome set of special knives or they could have fun with your super fun dishwasher! There is absolutely nothing to play with in your house. Maybe they can build a nice castle of dirt in your backyard or you can give them a fun axe to play with.
Sure, we would love to babysit your children but just know that:
- We will think about stealing them (but we won’t).
- We will pretend that they are our children.
- We will have an emotional breakdown after you leave. “Why aren’t WE pregnant yet!!” Sob.
If you want to leave your children with an infertile, just know the consquences.
