The Kid is amazingly in tune with the world on so many levels, handling the universal tv remote, instant streaming Pingu on Netflix by herself, and painting her fingernails with permanent markers. OK, not so much that last one.
But yesterday, after having a babysitter, she made the following confession:
Mommy, I’m nice to all the babysitters (they DO say that about her). I’m nice because when I’m nice the babysitter has to pay you, but if I’m not nice, you have to pay the babysitter.
Now I’m wondering what fun, 6 year-old hostess thing she does for them to make their time more enjoyable
and also, how can I convince her the same theory holds true for moms.
Can I bring you another Pop Tart, Brittany?
Wanna use my mom’s iphone?
Regardless of the bribery issue, wouldn’t that be a great system??
Come on, babysitters of America! Who’s with me?!
