David and Carolyn, my son and his wife, had an interview for a position with the Boys' Town house in Washington DC. They needed a baby sitter.
Yo! SuperNana! Pop pop is happy to stay with the baby.
As she was heading out the door, I asked Carolyn if this was the firs ttime since Colin was born that she'd been out without him for an extended time.
"Dad, it's the first time I have been out with out him."
Poor dear. "Go, run. Have a nice lunch with your husband. Enjoy the day."
From 8AM to 2:30PM it was just me and Colin.
I forgot how boring babies can be.
Eat, sleep, poop, eat some more.
But it was fun. And the Kids got to spend a nice day together in DC and have lunch.
I was happy to do it.
Tomorrow, She(WMBO) asked if she could come over after work to visit the Baby. "Sure, Mom. Would you like to babysit while we go out to dinner?"
I think, I hope, I helped them discover that they have a ready and willing resource so they can have a semblance of a life.
