No personal offense intended; I really dislike that middle cartoon, sick, sick, sick, particularly when people actually have put their baby in the microwave.

None taken.

Some things should be taken seriously.

Like when someone says, "I'm as serious as a Myocardial Infarction!"

This doesn't exactly have to do with babysitting, per se; the cartoons just reminded me of one of my all-time favorite cartoons. A mother has her son on a child harness/leash and he is floating around about six feet over her head; she remarks to a puzzled passerby: "I don't know what to do with him; he thinks he can fly."

When I was a toddler, my mom was given a toddler harness to use outside when I got rowdy. She used it a couple of times before I settled down.

My cousin, who is three years younger than I am, stayed with us when

his sister was born. He was an absolute heathen and the harness came

out again. Every time he wore it, he'd get down on all fours and bark!

One of our older babysitters used to bring her daughter over when she sat with us. The girl was around the same age as my younger brother, and she wore lace-up Buster Brown's with steel braces from toe to knee. She used to kick (and bite!) my brother if she could get anywhere near him. I believe he's hated her for that for nearly all his life! All you could do was yell at her or tell her mother on her; if you tried to intercede, you'd become the target!

When little 4 y.o. Helen was through eating, she was THROUGH! She would not swallow that last mouthful of food. Spent 15-20 minutes PROMISING her that if she would just swallow that bite of food she did NOT have to eat any more and she could be excused from the table, and could go out and play. WEIRD!
