My  Babysitting  Experience

My Babysitting Experience

One day, my parents had to go off for some hours to visit a sick relative. So I was left in charge of my baby sister. She is four years old and very mischievous.

When lunch time came, I seated her at the dining table. She spilt the food all over her and refused my offer to feed her. I had to clear up the mess and clean her up. The latter proved to be quite a difficult task as she was reluctant to have her dress changed, crying all the time.

Next, she wanted to sleep. So I put her in her cot but she was restless and wanted a drink. When she finished her drink, I thought my task was over and I could have some peace. But, no, she wanted a story told and I had to oblige her until she finally dropped off to sleep. I then seized the opportunity to watch TV programme. Unfortunately, the noise woke her up and she let out a yell and cried. So I switched off the TV and carried her. Then she announced she wanted to go out to the garden. But, as she was running, she slipped and fell. I quickly picked her up and soothed her.

Soon, it was time for her bath. She played in the water and splashed it all over me. Then the soap got into her eyes and she cried so much that I could not handle her. Finally, I picked her up and wrapped a towel around her. By then, she had stopped crying. I powdered her and dressed her in her favorite frock. It was 3.00 p.m. so I put her to sleep while I lay on the sofa with a story book and dozed off after a while. It was at that very moment that my baby sister woke up and came down the stairs. She lost her balance, tumbled down, yelled and screamed.

I rushed to her, picked her up and checked for any injuries. Just then, my parents returned, much to my relief. I hope I shall not have to baby-sit again as it is a tiresome and difficult job.
