My sweetie and I jostle in the kitchen. A little coffee slooshes. A drop lands on my sock. "Good thing my socks are black," I note. "Yeah," he says, ever the optimist. "If that's the worst liquid you get on you today, you'll be doing well." ~~~~~~~~~~~~ © 2006, Mary P

Second nannying job: baby spews entire twelve-ounce bottle all over my sweater. I take the sweater off so I can calm baby down.

Dad comes back in...

The fun of children!

Chelsea, Kristen: (Hello, Chelsea! Have you been here before? If not, welcome!) Yes, he definitely gets the job. He was home a lot when he was a student, and participated routinely in the daycare; he also has a bunch of kids of his own. He knows.

Kittenpie: In stride. And was I about to stride back upstairs for a fresh pair of socks, for one invisible coffee spot? I think not. Stride on!

Susan, McSwain: :-)

Supermom: This one does. The last one would only have been mad because I made him sloosh his coffee... (You're welcome.)

Kari: "No survivors", LOL. White is definitely not a good colour for the job!

Beckajo: ...and the dad was thinking, "The fun of nannies!" LOL (Oh, and what a good nanny, to sacrifice the sweater and tend to the child first!)
