Tonight, D & I look after our nieces and nephew for an entire evening. Doesn't sound so hard, but this is the situation:
- 1 six year old girl (going on 16) who is grounded for various reasons and who only wants to wear her headphones and listen to Justin Beiber, making sure we know it's up to *her* when she wants to go to bed
- 1 five year old girl who riles up her brother to the point where he's unstoppable and who talks like she's the last person on earth
- 1 three year old boy who is riled up and does not come down, no matter how much you run him out... he's like the energizer bunny with a gruff old-man voice
- 1 six-month-old niece, who is a total mama's girl, who cries when she leaves her mom's arms. Awesome.
I love these kids, but this'll be a good test!
