Matthew's first baby sitting

Rachel came downstairs. "What happened, did you just dump the whole baby toy basket on the floor and turn him loose among them?"

"No. But I think Matthew did."

I had Matthew watch Isaac for fifteen minutes while I bathed Melissa. He had instructions to come get me if Isaac started fussing (in case I couldn't hear over the splashing), but he didn't need to. When I came down Isaac was in the center of a storm of toys, on the edge of fussing but not quite, thanks to Matthew distracting him.

Good job, Matthew.

This is the best--when the older ones start helping. It almost makes life manageable--almost . . .
