We discovered that our 13-year-old babysitter is absolutely worth her weight in gold and we need to abduct her and start medical experiments to distill her essence for sale on the open market!
It seems that girl.imp wanted to watch t.v. and was rebuked in her attempt then threw a minor fit and was subsequently banished to her room. While none of this is, in and of itself, real news, it is what g.imp did next that really elevates our babysitter to iconic status.
g.imp snuck both of our house phones into her room and dialed wife.imp at work (and was forced to leave the following message):
g.imp: mom? MOM? When you get home tonight you need to fire (babysitter.imp). She was mean to me today and you really, really need to fire her.
Isn't she precious? What I really find impressive is that g.imp thought far enough ahead to take BOTH phones into her bedroom, just in case wife.imp returned the call!
Boy.imp also indulged in his own minor meltdown. He DOES NOT want daddy to give him a bath. Daddy actually insists on getting clean while in the tub. Not to slight wife.imp, but when daddy is in charge there is less splashing and more soap bubbles flying through the air.
So on the way to the tub b.imp indicated the need to use the potty and 20 minutes later he was still there but in a much better mood. I was getting a little freaked out though. I do understand that young imps will discover and explore their bodies, but I was not enjoying the images of what b.imp would look like in 10-15 years while watching him calmly discuss how he fell down outside and bruised his knee as he was pinching and twisting his nipples.
