When I call the babysitter I usually know what I'm in for. ...
"He's really having a great day.
"So happy. So chatty. I love him. He's just a joy."
Today wasn't even the exception.
"He's been so good today. He's so happy to be wearing big-boy underwear. He's going to the potty when he has to and he's kept G.I. Joe dry all day."
"I predict you won't have to buy another package of diapers again. ...
"You can cross that expense right off your grocery shopping list."
And then I burst into tears.
