Alone… but for the Sleeping Baby

Everyone else went out. Which is funny cause I really wanted to get out but ended up being the only one left here. Emma Jeanne is sleeping so someone had to stay with her.

I’m so tired I have been falling asleep each time I sit down for a few minutes. I don’t think it’s a great idea to fall asleep while babysitting. So I’m trying to stay awake.

That’s all I really can say about the day before Christmas at this time. Not all that much. Zack and I played a PS2 game most of the morning. Zack doesn’t understand why he has to keep nudging me awake.

I’m not sure about going back to the Beaches tonight. I don’t like leaving Zack with no one around over the holidays. Seems kind of a let down to have tree and lights and the family dinner (tonight, one night early) and then on Christmas day itself there will be no one here and he will sit by himself playing games as if it were any other day of the year. So I may stay longer, just long enough so that other boys from his school will be available to goof around with. Likely after Boxing Day the family gatherings will wind down and the parents will be glad to have the kids sent out to some other house.
