BABYSITTING  


Saturday night, My brother-in-law took my sis out for dinner (Her birthday is today) and they asked me if I'd watch the kids. LOL...she said when they woke up Saturday morning, they asked if they could go over to Uncle Mark's yet!
I was happy to watch the kids and so, I prepared well! I bought them the kiddie dinners they like to eat, some brownie mix, ice cream, sticker books, drawing tablets, crayons and Mulan II.
LOL...I knew when they arrived because Griffin almost pounded my door down, screaming "Open up in there or I'll have to blow it down!" (~snicker~)...when I opened the door, Griffin attacked me and Gwen scooted by wearing a dress, that I could tell she had something under. After subduing my monster nephew, my neice says, "Watch this!" and proceeds to remove her outer dress to reveal a Snow White dress underneath...then pretends to fly around the living room! Bet you guys didn't know that Snow White was a superheroine, did ya? Came as a surprise to me too!
As I was fixing us all dinner (Chicken Nuggets and Mac for Gween and Pizza Rolls and Mac for Griff), Teen Titans came on...both kids (and me) love Teen Titans and Gwen stands up on a chair and starts dancing and singing the theme song...Griffin yells at her to "Pipe Down!" and, after I give him some noogies, decides to sing along (Uncle Mark accompanied, but I only know the part where they sing "TEEN Ti-TANS"...LOL). So, we ate and watched the Titans and then I put on "Mulan II" which they loved (I enjoyed it too)...they were sitting on either side of me so close that they each had a leg hooked over mine...LOL...Mom was across the room in a chair drinking her coffee. While that was running, I jumped up and put the brownies in and when the brownies were done, we had brownies and ice cream (LOL...they loved THAT!!).
After that, it was time for sticker books and drawing tablets...Griff drew and Gwen did both.
They are so funny...on one side of me, Griffin was rapid firing questions about sharks and Batman and on the other side, Gweni was explaining to me that she got her hair cut 'but not alot...just to her shoulders and it will grow again and she'll get it cut again and it will grow again and she'll get it cut and it'll grow'...LOL...I love it!
Oh...and I forgot...the little scammers...I bought a whole carton of juice boxes for them and when I opened the fridge and they saw cokes, they each asked for a coke...what was I to do? Of course they could have a coke! LOL!
Well...When I heard a knock at the door, I couldn't believe it...time had flown by and they were there to pick up the kids. Both said that they wanted to stay...and sis told them it was late and they had to go...so I packed up all their things.
LOL...I told sis they ate their dinners and I fixed them brownies and icecream...and they had cokes...she said, "Brownies, Ice cream and coke...it's gonna be a long night!".
Anyhoo...I guess that was a long post about babysitting, but...I enjoyed it and I haven't updated much lately!

Teen Titans ROCKS. So much fun silliness.

You gave small children cokes? You're terrible. Destroying their kidneys and their teeth!
Mark: Archangelboywondermark on February 7th, 2005 05:33 pm (UTC)
LOL! OMG, Dan...I don't think I destroyed them with one twelve ounce can! Hahahaha...sis doesn't give them coke, so I think they are safe!
I love Teen Titans myself!
BTW, very cute pic of you in the icon!

The advantage of being an uncle is you can feed them brownies and ice cream and coke and then hand them off to Mom and Dad to deal with. heee!

And that you go ahead and do that makes you a fun uncle.

Loved this post :)

Mark: Archangelboywondermark on February 7th, 2005 08:33 pm (UTC)
I haven't read it for quite awhile...and Teen Titan's has always been one of my favorites!
Have yupou seen anything about the new book...Young Avengers? That also looks like something I think I'll like!
Michaelmikey89 on February 7th, 2005 07:07 pm (UTC)
LOL.. That was fun to read.. almost felt like I was there..

Typical Uncle Mark.. Load the kids up with sugar and then return them to the Parents.. lol

"Honey why are the kids bouncing off the walls?"
"I don't know Dear." LOL
Mark: elfboiboywondermark on February 7th, 2005 08:34 pm (UTC)
LOL...Oh...THEY KNOW! My sis sais she was gonna kill me (she was laughing so I think it was okay!).

Now I have the Teen Titans song in my head! =d Then again..I'm off to watch the end of the show. It sounds like you had a lot of fun with them. =)
Mark: Archangelboywondermark on February 8th, 2005 05:29 pm (UTC)
I did, Deb! I always enjoy the kids...they're just great! Enjoy the show, hon!
WONDER CHICOwonder_chico on February 8th, 2005 03:42 am (UTC)
So much fun!!!! I wished I had nephews and nieces so I can do that also. For now I have to do it by myself. My saturdays mornings (and my weekdays afternoons also!) consist of a cartoon marathon of Spongebob, Jimy Neutron, Fairly Odd-Parents, My life as a teenage robot and the ocassional That's so Raven and Phil of the Future. (I know, I know, I am such a nut case!) OH! And I forgot Dexter's Laboratory! I love Dexter. I am a grown up kid!
Next time let me know, I might consider coming to you and help you with the munchkins! ;o)
Mark: abercrombieboywondermark on February 8th, 2005 05:31 pm (UTC)
LOL! I'm a big kid too, Jorge! That's why I have so much fun with them! Sometimes when we go shopping, me and the kids are actually Power Rangers on a secret spy mission! LOL!

YAY for Teen Titans! Great post Marky!

Since everyone else is already asking you to adopt them, I won't even bother to ask ;)

You've been "missing" way to long, ya know!
Mark: thinkingboywondermark on February 8th, 2005 05:40 pm (UTC)
C'mon, Rex...I'll adopt you too! :)
I know...I feel so bad when I fall out of contact...but I get in these blue moods and get lazy with my LJ and email.

Thanks for the sweet words, cutie!

I freaking love Kim Possible & The Teen Titans!

I want to see Mulan 2, as well. Is it good?
Mark: elfboiboywondermark on February 9th, 2005 01:58 pm (UTC)
YES! I really enjoyed Mulan II! Kim Possible and Teen Titans are my favorites, Andy! (Ron and Rufus...who could ask for more?)
Vanessalockenessie on February 11th, 2005 04:49 am (UTC)
Glad to see your family is doing so well. I think the first post of yours I ever responded to was about your sis and Gwen and Griff at the park. Gosh, that was probably close to two years ago...time flies when you are having fun...and when you have kids in your life...and on LJ apparently. LOL

Peace,
V
Mark: abercrombieboywondermark on February 11th, 2005 05:19 pm (UTC)
Sigh...and they grow so fast! I'm gonna have to push sis to have more children in a few years!
