I'm babysitting my two year-old granddaughter this week, WHICH HAS BEEN AWESOME. It's funny how little has changed in the decades since I took care of my own kids . . . and how much things have changed, too.
For example, I never worried much about putting sunscreen on my kids. I'm sure it was invented by then. And probably other parents of my generation slathered up their babies, but I never did, probably out of sheer laziness. But I have been v. good about taking care of my granddaughter on this front, although whenever I pull out the aerosol sunblock, I feel like I'm spray painting a baby.
We call that Grandma Vandalism.
