On Saturday we were asked to babysit while our son and daughter-in-law went out to help a friend celebrate a milestone birthday. Of course we said ‘yes’. We arrived to find the grandchildren already in bed and asleep, so although we had taken Thing 1 and Thing 2 with us, ’now’ was not the time for introductions.
We had expected a quiet evening. Things, however, had other intentions. I didn’t get a moment’s rest as you will see from the following pictures.
First, they found a pair of birthday shoes
They argued over who should wear them, but in the end they opted for one each.
Thing 2 soon found another distraction, though and went off on a harem scarem ride.
Of course, all that just made them hungry, they were found in the fruit bowl as you can see.
Sadly that was only a short distance away from this. They didn’t seem to mind the sharp points, but I was really worried that they would hurt themselves, so I took them away to watch TV. Now all was peaceful.
Then I realised that all was just a little too peaceful! I WAS HORRIFIED AT WHAT I SAW
I thought this was bad enough, but…..
…. noise from the other side of the kitchen did not prepare me for what I found. The bottle was empty, and I think that every picture tells a suitable story!
They were housebound yesterday, sleeping it off. I have no idea who has set them such a bad example, but I hope they can contain their urges a little better over the coming days.
