Baby Sitting for my Daughter Inlaw.

My wife and I are yet to have any grandchildren. I am 56 years old and me and the little lady are getting a bit anxious to have a grand baby, but the boys do not seem to be in any kind of hurry. One aspect of grand parenting I look forward to, is serving as occasional baby sitter. But I sensed a little reservation on behalf of my daughter in law about me serving as a baby sitter in the future.

So, I thought to help build her confidence, I would volunteer to babysit her little Pomeranian Puppy as a means of gaining some trust. I figure if I can prove to be a good dog sitter, then that should build some confidence in my ability to be a good baby sitter. You see, she makes a few trips each year out to Southern California (work related), and is always in need of a puppy sitter. I volunteered my services. She was reluctant, but eventually caved in for one of her trips. I think she simply ran out of options.

So it would be me and the puppy (Maximus) alone for 10 hours a day for three days. What to do with all that spare time. Well he is a darling little pooch and you cannot help but loving him, but I do enjoy having a bit of fun. I could tell my daughter in law was a little concerned as she left her puppy with us, but I assured her I would take good care of him....

Now the best way to tell the story of those three days is to show the "video evidence" that I have submitted to YouTube. I will have to explain, that my life on a daily basis is lesson in multitasking. Watching the news, talking on the phone, taking care of my customers on-line, watching some videos, and one can become distracted. This to the peril of the little puppy Maximus.
