The Babysitter

Little babysitterThe term Inconvenient Truth might have been used as the title of a successful documentary, but as far as I am concerned it is a term best used to describe our life since we became parents. Most notably, it is a term best used to describe the fact that since our now three year old was born we've only gone out twice on our own while leaving the child under someone else’s care. If you find that unbelievable that I can assure you that so do we.
That situation is looking like it’s about to change after we’ve successfully engaged a willing babysitter this weekend. From here onwards, the sky could be the limit! As in, we might even be able to go for a nice dinner or even – hold your breath – watch a movie at the cinemas.
The way things are going, and under the right star alignment, I might even be able to attend the recently announced second Global Atheist Convention, scheduled to take place at Melbourne between 13 and 15 April 2012.

Instead of hoping you can come down and babysit, you know...

I'd be happy to. Do your rates cover the airfare?

I'm sorry, but does your current employer pay for you to get to work?
