Perks of big brothers

The other day I had to take a child to the dentist. To keep the 3 year old entertained while I was away, I gave each of the bigger kids the job of entertaining her for 20 minutes. Before I left, I laid out the parameters: active supervision of the child, fun activities such as games or stories or outside time.

When I got back home I learned that along with all the stuff I’d suggested, she’d also had the opportunity to do her March Madness basketball picks — compliments of her 16 year old brother. He said she loved it.

She likes San Diego, for those of you interested in such things. Apparently my 3 year old is.

  1. What an awesome big brother. I can totally picture her excitement while doing that.

    Angela 🙂

  2. I’m not sure I agree with her pick, but that is a hilarious story. I’m sure that everyone involved had a great time!

  3. That’s hilarious!!!

  4. It’s good she won’t be clueless when she goes out into the world and hears March Madness mentioned. I remember hearing it at work one day when I was in my twenties and thinking it was a version of spring fever.

  5. So I thought that was cute and read it to my sports fanatic husband and his response: “San Diego?!?” (Apparently it did not phase him that she is THREE-boys…..)

  6. LOL March madness…I am soooo glad we don’t have tv! hahaha

  7. That’s so cute!

  8. Brilliant idea! Even I can watch a 3 year old for 20 minutes! 🙂

  9. Your son is brilliant!
    Why didn’t I think of asking the kids what their picks were. They are watching most of the games as it is. Why not have a little added motivation for them. Hubby and I both filled one out and I am up by a point. Woohoo!
