Babysitting Conversations

Victor and I are playing mommy and daddy this weekend! We're babysitting two pretty cute kids from our branch/neighborhood, and it sure is a wake up call to see how different our lives will be with kids, but I would say that luckily it's not turning me off to the whole mommy thing. Maybe it was because of this sweet moment that happened at bedtime prayer tonight:
Yeah. It made me swoon a little.

And in true "kid's say the darndest things" fashion, here are some of my favorite quotes that have come from the four and a half year old in the last 24 hours.

"Have you ever had a baby?"
Me: "Nope, not yet."
"Well, it breaks your stomach when you have a baby. Just so you know."

"Does your husband work at the hospital or at a different clinic?" (her dad's a dentist, so she must assume that every guy is a dentist)
Me: "He doesn't work at the hospital. He does stuff with computers."
"I don't think that's a real job."

Scene: at dinner and witnessing Victor's hearty appetite.
"How much food can you fit in your mouth???"
Victor: "A lot."
Ha ha ha ha.

There's still a few days to go. Stay tuned for more gems.


  1. Haha! This is awesome. I'm glad you aren't turned off to parenting. Sounds like you guys will enjoy the adventure!

  2. That little girl is right, having a baby does break your stomach, but I won't go into details for you. :-)
