Banned from baby sitting

All I did was tell my co-worker's little girl, "what ever you do, don't ever clean the toilet with Mommy's toothbrush, even if it looks like the bristles would get all the stuff off the sides..."

Mom turned to me and told me I wouldn't be babysitting her kid. Go figure. I figured mom wouldn't be happy if the little girl did that, so it seemed wise to make that clear

Actually, I love kids despite the fact I don't have any and they usually like me. However, people with a low tolerance for mischief would consider me a bad influence.

what you want to do is make heavily disguised hints about where babies come from and then ask them to ask mummy or daddy to explain. mummy and daddy get very very uncomfortable and usually try to shut you up.

Or you teach them the time-honoured game of repeating everything you say. Fun for all ages!

You know that little strip of space behind the door where you can see into the refrigerator
when somebody opens it? Don't ever put your fingers in there...
Also don't ever blow into an ashtray.

When my oldest was little, he and I had waited for way too long for my wife to come out of a store that she was going to run into for "just a minute." Back in those days, he followed instructions very well. I told him to go into the store and say, "Mom, are you coming or just breathing hard?" The wife was not impressed.

The problem is no one smokes anymore, especially where you find kids. I may have also mentioned to the little girl that she should not put eggs inside peoples' shoes....
