Step on soapbox.
Something bugs me, and it’s when someone tells me something like this… “Wife is out of town. Looks like I’m babysitting this weekend.” I always think to myself, really? You getting paid tonight for having to spend time with your kids?
The way I see it, people don’t babysit their own children. Leave that task to the high school kid in need of extra cash. Instead be a parent. Build a fort. Play catch. Hold your infant close and watch them breathe, smile and slowly drift off to sleep.
Step off soapbox.
