N is for Niece

My brother-in-law started back to college about the same time I began.  He is graduating this Saturday.  I find it amusing, because he is making a bigger deal out of it than I did when I graduated last month.  He is making my sister throw him this big graduation party the day before my mom, sister, niece, and I all leave for vacation.  Needless to say, my sister is stressing out over the whole thing.  I’ve been the designated babysitter for the next couple of days. 

My sister called me yesterday and asked me what I was doing Thursday and Friday.  When I told her that I was running errands and getting ready for the trip, she said she would really love it if she could get my niece, Ashley out of her hair for a couple days.  My response was a simple question, "So you want her in my hair?" 

I love my niece, but she definitely does "get in your hair."  She just doesn’t seem to know how to entertain herself and thinks that someone always has to be entertaining her.  She’ll be twelve next month.  I remember being twelve.  Heck at twelve I was babysitting her, but she just seems very immature sometimes.  Maybe all kids are like that these days.  I don’t know.  I have her watching a show on the Disney channel right now.  Just long enough for me to check my email and post this.  

Anyway, back to Ashley.
