I babysat my brand new nephew for two weeks and boy did I learn A LOT.
It’s not lost on me that I’ve only dipped my toe into what is the most life-changing, overwhelming experience a person can have.
But there are moral dilemmas when you have a baby that I feel like no one talks about. Until now.
My beautiful sister had baby Henry three weeks ago, her hubby has gone back to work so I went to live with her as a spare pair of hands.
Henry and I went on many adventures just him and I and looking back, I’m sure I’ve broken some sort of baby handling law. I came across social hurdles and tried to jump them… and I’m still not sure in some circumstances whether I did the right thing.
First, let’s talk about going to a public toilet with a baby and where the hell to put it. The baby, that is.
Henry and I went out for lunch and I was busting to pee. There’s only the ladies’ cubical and I’m thinking “what the hell do I do with this child?”. I mean, I didn’t want to take him in with me, isn’t that a bit weird?
