How To Get Out of Babysitting: 101

Actual conversation with my sister (Han and Evil’s mom) via text message. Of course I could’ve just posted the screenshot, but then anonymity for both my sister and Han would be lost. Plus, I MUST fix some of the text shorthand, because I’m a nerd and it drives me nuts how people don’t spell out actual words in text.

I know, I know: emojis and shorthand are their own languages now…isn’t it interesting how the modern equivalent of Egyptian Hieroglyphs are coming back as a real language through texting?

Um. Anyway…conversation as follows (edited only for privacy and incomplete words. I left the punctuation, because it makes me chuckle to imagine the over-enthusiasm).

S: Han’s Actual Name Han asked me at dinner how the babies are going to get out of my belly…….

Me: You didn’t show him Alien, did you?

Me: I’m no expert, but showing a 4 year old to explain birth might be bad parenting. Just sayin.

Me: Go with Aliens instead. Better movie all around. 

S: Heehee…I said we’d go to the hospital and the doc would help get them out. Then I changed the subject and said ‘guess what!!! Grandpa is going to stay with you while we’re at the hospital!!!!!’

S: oh good lord Jess, maybe you shouldn’t babysit…*

Yeah. I babysit the kids a lot. They’re my favorite. I’m pretty sure when the twins come I won’t be allowed to touch them at all if Han and Evil are around.

Also, four kids under 5 all in one suburban house?

If you were wondering when the apocalypse starts, I’m pretty sure she’s due sometime in March.

*As it turns out, not actually a deterrent from babysitting. Neither is giving the kiddos cherry popsicles so they look like little vampires.
