DBF's best friend is a general contractor. He's over at our house today, working with DBF to replace our water heater with a tankless and relocate our boiler (long story summarized: we haven't had central heat for about 5 weeks due to problems with our boiler). B/C DBF's friend watches his 7 month old daughter on weekends while his wife works, today I'm taking care of their little girl. thank goodness for their 10 year old son! I feel so useless!! I'm in my 30s, used to babysit all the time, and want a child of my own. But their daughter is in that "stranger anxiety" stage. Her brother looks at her and she's fine. I look at her and she freaks. It's hard and frustrating. Speaking of frustrating, think I'll go see if she wants to eat something.
