babysitting

Today we got the pleasure of watching Benjamin for a little bit while my friend Tricia recovered a little bit from a bout with the stomach flu. As awful as it was for her to have the stomach flu, we were sure happy to goo and gaa at him today. The kids ate it up! Elizabeth of course was a little mommy and wanted to help with everything and to my surprise, AJ was VERY interested in the baby. He wanted to hold him, feed him and help me change his diaper. The biggest shock for me was when AJ went and got his most prized possessions, his "nee's" (blankets- for those of you that don't know that is the name he calls them) and asked to give them to Benjamin. Jacob was a little jealous but got over that pretty quick but still didn't like the idea that Benjamin used the same pacifiers he did. I mean who am I to give his pacifiers to a new baby (or as far as he was concerned that is what I was doing).? Over all it wasn't that bad to have four kids but I must say with 100% certainty that I am done having children. I am ready to move on to the next phase of childrearing.
