Being around young children is fascinating. Especially as an adult.
They make us present by paying our full attention to them. Where simple things, even collecting rocks, help pass their time. Who seek our phones showing us that our addiction is theirs. They look for simple things like love, care, and safety. We keep each other company while the time flies.
Each of us, those young as well as those old, benefit when babysitting. The children get to escape their parents busy lives while the adults get to escape theirs.
It sounds like a vacation but isn’t. Yes, they are a lot of work. But when doing something so enjoyable, it’s interesting how even when babysitting, there are benefits for both.
