Last Saturday night I had a concert. Poor Spencer gets dragged to all my concerts and lets face it. He isn't Mr. Musical (Love you anyhow babe!) so instead my dear sister Jani came. Only thing is Jani is a package deal. She comes with 3 kids under 5. (and usually a husband but he was at work)
What were we going to do with all 3 babies during the concert in the chamber hall. (Concert=No Kids Allowed)????
Spencer to the rescue! Spencer stayed home and watched all three kids! In order to fully appreciate this you have to understand that Spencer has very limited babysitting experience. He only has one (full) brother who is 4 years younger. He didn't grow up with constant coming siblings like I did. Until last Saturday night He had only changed 1 diaper in his whole life and that was 10 years ago.
So how did he survive? Well when we walked in the door after the concert at a mere 9:30 p.m. we were SURE the little ones would be fast asleep. but NO! Their they were all lined up on the couch chowing on the popcorn and watching Sleeping Beauty (he checked it out from Blockbuster but I think we need to add it to our library) And he survived changing little Eden's diaper. What a guy!
On the drive home Little Mariah said to her mom:
"I think Uncle Spencer looks like Prince Philip!"
Considering the importance Sleeping Beauty ranks in her life I don't think she could have paid him a higher compliment.
Flash forward to yesterday. Jani told me that Mariah just loves her friend Patrick (he is 5) who comes over to play sometimes. I told Spencer about Patrick and he got all sad and said, "She found another prince." in such a sad voice!
Yes she did my love. But I never will.
