Adventures in Babysitting

Well, tonight Mike, me and the husband babysat Ben and Reed (or as we like to call them, the "hatchlings") while Ted and Suz went to a wedding. It was a pretty funny night, which mostly consisted of running after Reed and playing video games with Ben.

Reed is HILARIOUS. That boy cannot sit still for more than one second. It took a minute for him to warm up to us, and once that happened- he was all smiles. And we've seen those two boys go at it: Reed tries to play with Ben, Ben gets annoyed, Ben does something to make Reed cry. So our plan of attack? KEEP THEM SEPARATED AT ALL TIMES UNTIL THE PARENTS GET HOME! And yes, we were successful...


Here's Ben trying to bug Reed with a bucket full of water...
Ben thinks it's funny...
Reed planning his retaliation...
He spots a weapon...
He goes for it, while Ben is kept distracted by a blow up toy...
His first attempt doesn't make it too far as he throws the red bucket towards Ben:
Mission accomplished!

Mike, making sure Reed doesn't run out into the streets:

All in all, babysitting was pretty entertaining for a Saturday night. The kids were fun and adorable, but I think we're still good on being kid-less parents for a few years!

I can't believe you got those pictures! I'm sure a psychiatrist would have a hay day with those. Thanks for watching the kiddos, Ben can't stop talking about you guys.

I love Reed's face in the very last picture. That's so funny.
