The Babysitter

The Babysitter

I am blessed to have a school-aged person home this summer (I say this through clenched teeth). The ennui, the apathy, the utter lassitude is almost unbearable—and the kid is pretty cranky too. This all led me to wonder what I did all summer when I was his age. I know I wasn’t in camp all summer—I was a chicken about overnights and it was too expensive. My parents both worked, so what was I doing all summer? Oh yeah, I remember—the babysitter!

The summer I was my son’s age, I was smoking my first cigarette, shoplifting candy bars, and drinking gallons of sugared Kool-aid—all under the watchful and encouraging eye of my babysitter, Susie, a sixth grader from down the block. My parents knew nothing about it until she and I set a fire in the basement. Yep. (And put it out before they came home.. the mark on the basement floor is what gave it away.)

The Babysitter

My babysitter here is a more innocent sort (I hope). With a cute little flowered top from Monica Outlander (that I have modified quite a bit—changed the color on the underlayer and buried some prims on the sleeves) and a shorty short skirt from suppe Koba, this sweet girl (with Red Cross certification, darn it) can do no wrong. Knee socks from Anessa Stine and little sneakers from Pixieplumb Flanagan prove she is ideally suited to watching your lovely children (or Kittycats or Meeroos or whatever needs sitting).

The Babysitter

Short little braids from MissAllSunday Lemon with long straight bangs suit our babysitter just fine. One of Diarmuid Miklos’ newest skins with a little lip gloss from Mocksoup Graves (watermelon-flavored, don’tcha know) over a shape from Sophia Rossen makes our babysitter just right.

Let it be noted: my child has only once had a babysitter under the age of 28. *cough*
