When will you and Daddy be back?

This adorable flickr photo was taken of little dudes when the babysitter was about to arrive. Look at those anxious fingers! I remember that feeling, don't you?

That's so sweet!

My kids don't even bother saying goodbye to us anymore when we go out. I'm lucky if I even get a head nod... and they're only 4 & 6.

No siree. If I might brag a bit, I was the much-anticipated babysitter. Being the eldest of four daughters (& later one half-brother) I was trained well. (It also paid for my flight at age 17 outta here & to France. For over a year. Oui.) Many adventures, some not necessarily ones I would've chosen, but it was all cleaned up by the time the parents arrived home. Barely.

Awww so sweet! When I was left with the babysitter my mom left a report card for them to fill out for me because she knew that was when the mischief really started...

Shannon Echlin said...

I loved the baby sitter, gave me the opportunity to wreak havoc for a few hours. I always told them I was allowed to eat as much candy as wanted.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

wow, i remember that feeling all too well. i loved the process of watching my mom get ready, but then never handled it well once they actually left!

Dancing Branflake said...

I can't wait to have kids. So sweet!

pen.ny said...

I was always anxious for my parents to come home, never was a huge fan of the babysitters! Cute photo:)

leenabean said...

this breaks my heart!

Chelsea said...

This is a fantastic photo.

Maki said...

Aww so sweet and cute! Great photo!

The thing is we don't have a babysitter for our daughters and their grandma usually takes care of them when and if I need to work... But my littest one always stands in front of the door and open her arms wide open and cries every time I need to go out :( Even it eats me and frustrates me, I try to enjoy it because soon or later, those tender moments will be gone! :)

as a child i hated when my parents went out. except that we always got to eat mac and cheese, and only then--that was exciting!! now as a babysitter it's amazing to watch how much children love and respect their parents when the parents truly do just that, parent.

Sealicious said...

I don't know . . . i think those could be little mischief-plotting fingers!

Daisy said...

This is such a fab photo

Michelle said...

Ha ha! This definitely brings back some memories!

A Taste of T said...

Yes and I remember being the babysitter

LINDSAY said...

My kids don't like the babysitter either...because they say "she sticks to the rules too much". Good girl. :)

Bluebird Shop said...

My grandmother tells the story of having to wear a bathrobe over her fancy clothes so the kids wouldn't have a fit. After awhile the kids got hip to the fact and her shoes would give her away.

this picture is adorable. and is EXACTLY how i felt when i was an anxious little girl.

Sarah said...

kids? what kids? look at those shoes!

The Lil Bee said...

I just ADORE this concept! So sweet:)

Chantelle {fat mum slim} said...

We only ever had a babysitter once, but I remember that feeling.

I'm a Nanny though, so I'm usually the one about to walk in and cause chaos of sorts... so it's interesting to see this shot.

Thanks for sharing. x

i'm with sarah - the shoes, my god how nice and such beautiful legs 'neath the li'l black dress.

SK said...

My parents left me and my younger brother with a baby sitter only once - and I'm thankful for that. It also makes me want to buy them a vacation package to Napa to drink all the wine they want and have alone time!

CeCe said...

This picture is too sweet, too adorable.

Ana said...

makes me want to be a mom...like... now.

His photo stream is amazing. Full of great portraits. Thanks for sharing.

My Dog-Eared Pages said...

I just love this photo. And, yes I do remember that feeling but the five kids in my family were usually already plotting for fun with our babysitter. Our favorite was named Binkey!! Not kidding... she was surfer-girl cool.

I love Lucy said...

Oh this is soo sweet! I didn't even know there was such a thing as "the feeling when the babysitter is about to arrive" but its funny how perfectly I remember the actual feeling! Lol, the most vivid memory is always the perfume smell my mom would put on right before heading out the door and the babysitter coming in! Thanks for sharing!

so nostalgic! Plus, I'm pretty sure I own mom's shoes! Scary to relate to the other side of this equation!

Hermione said...

Aw, that's so cute.. I remember the feeling of having like an invisible string tied to your parents, and it was really hard to let them go, anywhere. Good to be a grown up sometimes:)

destined to design said...

this is precious! love the concept.

Polly R said...

My parents always had a huge battle when they went out as I hated them leaving me! These anxious fingers look so familiar to me! It was only 6 years ago that I used to have a babysitter... now I am one!
