Saturday afternoon, the Lovely Mona and I had the wonderful opportunity to babysit Miss Bebé, the World's Most Beautiful Granchile™ for some four hours. We arrived a bit early so Tara and Chris could prepare her for their departure (she's still getting used to los abuelos). We were playing with the toy stethoscope when they left, so she didn't really pay much attention. Then we played "spinning in the chair" for what seemed like hours. If I stopped spinning the chair, she'd say "more spinning, please!" so I spinned the chair some more. Fortunately, this grew boring before she had a chance to barf. Then we watched a DVD of Caillou (in German!). Either Miss Bebé was exhausted from all the spinning or was a bored with the little bald-headed kid as los abuelos were, because we all fell asleep on the couch. Abuelo Mickey woke up first and turned the DVD off and watched a television program about the Chinese immigrant experience in the U.S.A. Then Abuela Mona woke up and we talked. Miss Bebé remained asleep until her folks came home. We all discussed the Star Trek film while Miss Bebé had a fit (she doesn't wake up well). We decided to leave so that mom and dad could have all the fun of dealing with a screaming child. All in all, a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
