Babysitting

Back on babysitting duty again for only 3 days this time. Brock and Brayden's Mom ,
Sherry is at a convention at the Royal York for her company Thrillshow Productions.
There really should be a better name for looking after older children...... .
I looked up babysitter definition in Thesaurus, I am a guard, sentry ,or watchperson ,a person or special body of persons assigned to provide protection or keep watch over.
Sounds like secret service detail to me !
Just need the ear set and black suit.
Officially Grandmother is labeled ;caretaker, caregiver, au pair, minder, baby-sitter, sitter, child minder, carer.
I think I like "carer" best.
I even looked to see if there
is a special definition for " Gramma care"
in the Dictionary. It is not there.It should be!
Because this time my grandson, Brayden,is getting some special "Gramma care".
He is home from school and hockey , sick .
Brayden

has the bad cold that is so wide spread in this area. Sore throat, chest congestion and cough.
Gramma duty with a "sicky" consists of handing out medication and making some comfort food.
So today we are having Old fashioned Baked Macaroni and Cheese . Prepped and ready for breadcrumb topping.
Dessert will be Chocolate Banana cupcakes with lots of ice cream, for that sore throat..

Way to go Grandma, I know how he feels, I have the same thing and it's a doozy. Lucky me I have a hubby that takes good care of me. Hope Brayden feels better soon!
