Tree Buds

Hello people! Since the prompt for Texture Tuesday is wise words I was contemplating being really sarcastic and saying things like "When using a hammer, don't hammer the nail through you're hand" and stuff like that and I actually still really want to so that is what I am doing. If you don't like it...well then go use that hammer (I'M KIDDING, jeez.).

Something you should not do when babysitting a toddler is leave her alone for more then 10 seconds. If your toddler is anything like the one I am babysitting as soon as you leave she will tear stuff apart. But I personally find it so cute when she shrieks with glee over throwing things everywhere that I just let her do it and then clean it up.

Something you should do when you realize you don't have pictures for todays post is to have your sister take them for you because the lady you are babysitting for is waiting outside in the driveway so you don't have time to take them (I actually did try taking the pictures myself but my sisters camera doesn't like me and didn't work so I had her do it and then email me the pictures.).

Another thing you should do when babysitting is take them to the park in almost 80 degree weather (or not) so she can play play play and then come home and take a nap because she is so tired.

I hope you enjoyed my wise words! Or not!

Baby-sitting tips to live by. We're both about the buds it would seem. Nice photos.

I really love the glow of the green in that second photo. Your sister did a good job! and I can't wait for some green!
Oh, the stories I could tell you about my twin boys (who are 15 now) when they were toddlers.. the mischief when I turned my back!
Egg mischief. Brownie mischief. They kept me on my toes, those two.
I used to babysit a lot growing up. Kids are fun! (and sometimes tiring) ;)
