Baby-Sitting My Ladybug

Today I baby-sat my 16-month-old-niece. It has been a while since there was a baby in the house, but I was ready........

                I recorded two episodes of Sesame Street

                I also recorded two episodes of Barney

                I brought up J and D's old toys and I was ready to spend a great day with my little Ladybug.

                We played.

                We danced.

                 She ate her lunch and wanted me to have some too.

                 She followed my dog Max everywhere and...

                                                      when she had crackers in her hand...

                                                                                            Max followed her everywhere.

                  We colored.
                  I remembered vaguely what it was like to do everything with one hand and carry a baby with the other.

                 Yes it was a great day and I am pooped,

                 and even the toys had a great time, because...

                 They all got together for this group photo to give to the ladybug baby.
 On the back they wrote...

                                                We loved playing with you!
                                               Hope to see you again soon! Love, the toys
                             I added.....Ditto.  Love,  Aunt Joanne
