The Nanny

The friend and I arranged to have a long-procrastinated lunch with a girlfriend.

She brought her 18-month-old son along. Much to our delight!

I was seated across him at lunch, so I could only "play" with him through words and funny faces.

The friend however, thoroughly surprised me. Not only did she sacrifice her glass of water for him to dunk his dirty spoon in (together with a couple of Cheerios), she was responsive to his gurgles and expressions throughout lunch, and even took it upon herself to pick up his shoes when they fell off more than once, gently putting them back on for him.

After lunch, the boy got fidgety, so she took him out of his high-chair, and meticulously followed him around in a half-bent posture, holding on to him to ensure that he didn't bump into anything or fall down steps. The boy obviously knew he was in good hands because he started to plunge down steps with his little legs, knowing that his new grown-up friend would keep him from falling.

This is the friend who has often declared that she would help me babysit in the future, when I have my own babies. I have always been a leetle skeptical about that, having never seen her with kids, but always with perfectly curled hair, manicured nails, and toting one of her many Chanel bags...heh heh. Now I know better!

Alas, this is also the same friend who has declared more than once that she doesn't want to have kids of her own.

At least now I now I have a part-time Nanny secured! ;)
