Babysitting Our Nephew

We had the pleasure of babysitting our beautiful nephew! He is such an easy kid and does so well while mom and dad are away.

My mom suggested that we turn a laundry basket up-side-down so that he could push it and walk all over our upstairs. It was a hit!

We also taught him to climb up and down the stairs going backwards. He would glance at us to make sure that he was doing it correctly. He could have gone up and down for hours.

Uncle Oliver got a little tired of sitting on the stairs so he took him back to the living room and Kyle enjoyed playing with all the beeping buttons of Catch Phrase.

He started to catch on that he was being distracted and kept pointing to the stairs so that he could go back and climb! What a smart little guy...

In the end tumbling in and out of the laundry basket was just as fun as the stairs!

We learned that it doesn't matter if you don't have any toys - kids don't care and they just aren't that picky. Just don't take away Kyle's pink monkey and blanket and he is happy to play with whatever you've got.

Can't wait to watch you again little guy!

Oh they play with everything that isn't a toy--FOR SURE. What a cutie. Can you give Will climbing lessons?
