Listen. I’ve been around babies my whole life. I’ve been babysitting since I was 13. I have done the nappy changing, the bottle feeding, the sleepovers with toddlers, all sorts. In the month of December, I used to babysit every single day for various Aunties whilst they went and did the Christmas shopping. Friends of mine now have children, who I see regularly. I also work in an environment with kids 5 days a week, and have done so for nearly 3 years. With all of that said, I feel like I am at least partially qualified to make the following statement.
Now, I don’t want anyone getting angry here, so just try to stay calm. This is a safe place, where all opinions are valued. So sit comfortably, relax, and take a deep, calming breath.
Okay. Here goes.
