Adventures in Babysitting...

Cade is probably thinking "What's up with this shirt, MiMi?"
This past Saturday night I had the pleasure of babysitting sweet baby Cade for over five hours while his parents went on an outing with some other couples.

When Cade arrived, his mama told me that he needed a nap. He looked sleepy, but I could tell that there was no way that he was going to sleep without playing a bit first! After about 30 minutes, I decided to see if he would go to sleep if I rocked him and sang to him. It worked like a charm...

I sat there in my big comfy rocking chair humming and rocking him for over an hour. Just enjoying the experience of it--knowing that these times are quickly disappearing!

Cade woke up and I was still holding him, when I felt something warm on my lap. I didn't realize it for a moment, but Cade had "wet" both of our pants! What an ending to such a perfect hour!

Unfortunately, I didn't have another outfit to change Cade into. My daughter went next-door to her house and brought one of Madison's old shirts over. Thank goodness for helpful daughters and neighbors!

The rest of the evening went off without incident. Cade and Madison played together and had a wonderful time...and so did MiMi.
