Berry's Babysitter

We put out an ad the other day for a babysitter for Berry. This afternoon, our first candidate arrived for her interview.

Everything looked good on paper. She majored in psychology at Columbia University, and is currently taking time off before taking her graduate degree on developmental psychology at Yale. When asked why she wanted to babysit Berry, she said she studied too much while at school, she just wanted something that wasn't academic at this point, yet at the same time, would expose her to childcare and development. Simply put, she was burnt out and wanted to feel young and see the world with wide-eyed amazement and wonder, just like a child seeing things for the first time.

Thing is, while we were talking, she asked if she could change the channel since she didn't want to watch "Make Me A Supermodel", only one of my favorite shows!

Before I could say, no, she went ahead and grabbed the remote control! Minus 1 point!

Then she said, "Do you mind if I wear my sunglasses indoors? I stayed up late last night and I kind of lack sleep. The glare from outside is too much for me..." Uhmmm, ohhh-kay....

And when she spotted the bunch of bananas on our dining table, she asked if she could get one for her daily dose of potassium...

But when she saw the cupcakes from Billy's Bakery, she wanted one instead!

Then she went ahead and laid down on a dish of chocolates and declared dramatically, "Now this is what I call 'Death by chocolate!'"

I asked her point blank if she had a sweet tooth, because I didn't want her to indulge Berry with sugary snacks. She raised her hands up and told Dear Hubby and I matter-of-factly, "I do! Is it a crime? If so, then sue me!"

Guess the hunt is still on for a nanny for Berry!


Thanks Tita Sarj and Tito Toni for my Uglydoll! Mom and Dad had fun playing with her!

Hahaah this was hell funny! I mean the story + pictures!

But then again if she had a sweet tooth, then nothing sweet would have been left for the kid :).

Weird lady but I guess there are some more strange people out there..
