little sabotagers

So, we are hiring the first babysitter who isn't family. Kinda exciting and scary. The babysitter came very recommended from a friend who uses her and she is the oldest of 5 children. She was very nice and i am excited about it.

The kids were very excited to meet her. We of coarse talked before the sitter arrived to meet them. We use our best manners. Topics to avoid talking about (as in fart, poop, pee, private parts). To be on their best behavior to impress so the girl would come watch them on sunday.

the door bell rings and the kids are so excited to meet her.

the kids manners must have gotten stuck outside or something because they became these wild kids. These kids who were jumping on my couch and cushions. Being loud. they got whistles and blew them loud in the living room. They just went crazy. Ethan walks over to me and says "Mommy your a jerk!" Wow, was i embaressed. I wanted to act like a jerk to him after he said that, but having company i held my cool and let him know that was not a nice word and then asked him apoloigize to me.

The kids led the babysitter to the play room, and when she got out of there alive, she looked like she had no idea what she was getting herself into. She agreed to come for a few hours sunday while i go to book club. Lets see what happens the next time i call.

Beware of these kids.....they are WILD!
