As soon as we got pregnant, we had family and friends say that they’d baby sit. After we had Lily, the offers kept rolling in. Then one day my wife said “Do you suppose they were sincere about babysitting?”
What do you mean? Do people really go around saying that they’ll babysit when they don’t really mean it?
In my mind, if you offer to babysit, I’ll put you on the list of people to call. If you don’t really mean it, don’t say it and get my hopes up.
Just sayin’. 🙂
