Baba wanted a snack this afternoon and volunteered to watch his sister while I fixed his 87th snack of the day. I said okay, but to let me know if she started on the steps. He agreed.
I fixed his snack and came around the corner. "Where's your sister?" I asked.
"On the 'teps!" Baba yelled.
I said, "I thought you were watching her."
He said, "I was. But I needed a break."
He had been "watching" her for about 30 seconds.
I rescued Rudy from the steps and they happily went back to playing with the cat toy (which I got on clearance at Target for 29 cents. Next year, Santa is bringing boxes, cat toys, and more boxes).
