I haven't babysat in a long time. But last night I babysat a cute little baby. He was so sweet. He was only a few weeks old. He took forever to eat his bottle, and then he wouldn't fall asleep unless I was holding him. I had planned on getting a few things done while he was sleeping, but instead I ended up watching a movie while holding him. While I work in a nursery at a local hospital, I don't get time to just "hold babies" So, it was actually quite peaceful and nice to hold him all night.
I was a little nervous when I had to change his diaper just because I am so accustomed to wearing gloves when I do that. Thankfully, this baby's diapers are still so small, (which I am used to that), and he had only peed so it was easier to do that without gloves. You might all think that is strange that I wanted gloves, but it made me feel better when I was talking to a fellow coworker and she was telling me how when she first had to change her grand baby's diaper without gloves she was so grossed out. I always wonder if I will be able to change my baby's diapers without gloves or not. I suppose so, but we'll see.
And in a few weeks I will be helping my sister with her new baby and toddler, so I will get many more opportunities to change diapers without gloves. Yikes. It will be fun though, I am looking forward to it. I always love playing and messing around with my nieces and nephews.
