    The Moral Of This Toy Story

    | QLD, Australia | Children, Nephews & Nieces, Theme Of The Month

    (I’m babysitting my six year old nephew and he’s smashing his toys together.)

    Me: “Don’t be rough with your toys or they’ll be rough with you.”

    Nephew: “Toys can’t be rough with you.”

    Me: “Yes, they can. You’ve seen Toy Story. You know how it works!”

    Nephew: “No, they can’t! They’re just toys!”

    (Just then he lost grip of his toy and it smashed him in the head.)

    A Scientific Process To Mayoral Selection

    | Bellevue, NE, USA | Nephews & Nieces

    (I was snuggling my five year old niece on the couch when she made a random comment.)

    Niece: “I wish I was mayor.”

    Me: “What would you do if you were mayor?”

    Niece: “I’d make all the boys and girls be scientists. And all the rest be mothers, except for the ones that want to be firemen or firegirls.”

    Scandalous Pillow Talk

    | Portland, OR, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Children, Nephews & Nieces

    (I am rather flat chested. The women on my husband’s side of the family are quite the opposite. His Aunt T. is visiting, and my three-year-old daughter is sitting on her lap.)

    Daughter: *patting Aunt T’s chest* “Mama! Aunt T’s got PILLOWS!”

    Not Quite Hooked On To The Roleplay

    | BC, Canada | Children, Nephews & Nieces

    (I am babysitting my three-year-old niece. We are playing pirates.)

    Me: “Am I Captain Hook?!”

    Niece: “No!! You’re Auntie [My Name]!”

    Going Through That Transformative Age

    | SC, USA | Children, Nephews & Nieces, Theme Of The Month

    (I am babysitting my baby niece, so that her parents can go on a much-needed date. The poor baby is getting three teeth all at once while recovering from her immunization shots. Suffice to say she is very unhappy. I put on some cartoons to distract her, and she quiets down after three episodes of the 80s Transformers. Then suddenly, she bursts into adorable baby giggles.)

    Me: “I’ve been trying to make you smile for half an hour, and you wait to laugh until the Decepticons show up?! [Niece], you can’t cheer for Decepticons. They’re the bad guys!”

    (She gives me a dirty look.)
