14“I. AM. SO. BORED.”
I mean, it makes complete sense. As a teenager, playing with a young child can be fun for a while, but at a certain point, the fun starts to fade and interacting with someone so much younger than you becomes a bit tedious.
Whether your babysitter is waiting for you to come home after putting the kids to bed or is playing the umpteenth game of Snakes and Ladders with your little one, this one thought probably goes through their mind a few times a night.
The big secret about this secret is that
you are probably keeping the same secret from your babysitter. Even if you don’t want to admit it to yourself, you probably get pretty bored once and awhile when you are playing with your kids. But in the mind of your babysitter, you see your kids as the most entertaining little creatures in the world. They would never think that you share in their boredom.
So this is a secret they will keep to themselves and maybe whichever friend they happen to be texting during that never-ending game of Snakes and Ladders. It can't be avoided: it's going to happen. So parents, get used to it.
