    Stink, you have weird friends

    That is such an ODD request! And you know whats going to happen. Baby will be sleeping and she'll have you help her clean her house.

    Uh... even if you had nothing to do but sit at home and eat bon bons, you were right in saying No. What a way to try to take advantage of someone! Why can't she clean while the kid's taking a nap, or playing with toioys in a different part of the room or SOMETHING, not to mention the hiring a cleaner or babysitter, etc, that's already been mentioned! Yeah.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    HECK NO!!!!

    If I were you I'd suggest that she call Merry Maids and have them do the cleaning and she can play with her own kid. Or hire a teenager to play with the baby while she prepares for the party!


    I met a lady and her daughter this past weekend at the mother-daughter retreat and thought we really clicked. Later she asked me for my phone number so we could get together sometime. Then she said "MORE IMPORTANTLY, do your twins ever babysit?" Those two words "more importantly" turned me off right away...I lost her phone number quickly!

    let us know how the shower goes! good luck and dont do anything your not comfortable with. and it was wrong of her to ask you so dont feel bad you did not go and help her!

    thats even weirder! but as its already been said, i would never leave my kids with someone i barely knew, even if i was home too. i also think she wanted help cleaning and with a 1 yr old that house would never stay clean unless she sent the kid to grandmas for the week! my 2 yr olds room is a sty maybe 10-20 min after we clean it, hehehee

    Re: Strange Request From a Co-hostess...your thoughts?

    This is just silly. I always cleaned my house ALONE with the baby. This is not rocket science! What does she normally do to clean her house??? DOes she always need a babysitter to clean? The more I think about this, the weirder it gets.

    Re: Strange Request From a Co-hostess...your thoughts?

    That is an odd request. You were right to say no. Like others have said, it sounds like she can afford a cleaning lady for a couple of hours. Heck, my husband and I can't afford a cleaning lady but we were in a pinch and needed help (closest family 120 miles away) so we hired someone for 2 hours!

    Re: Strange Request From a Co-hostess...your thoughts?

    I've been cracking up all day...I wish I WISH I WISH I'd kept that voicemail. My husband heard it after I did and he was like, "GET RID OF IT!!" He called a little while ago, said he'd been thinking about that message all day at work and it keeps cracking him up.

    Are parents getting wussier?? I've come across some total whiny-heads lately!!

    Re: Strange Request From a Co-hostess...your thoughts?

    That....is....just...weird!

    Never have I ever had to get someone to watch either of my kids while I clean house!

    What does she do when she needs to, like say, go to the toilet? Does she have someone come over and watch her kid then?

    IF...she knew you better...I think it would have been a reasonable request to maybe ask you ...IF...you were not having the month from HELL...to see if her precious little ankle bitter could come to YOUR house! Doesn't mean you would have to do that either...YOU come first. But if you guys were better friends, that would be more sane!

    I can just picture you though...sitting with the baby in your arms...watching this lady run around cleaning her house.

    "Hey hon...you missed a spot over there???"
    Us girls, we're so magical.
    Soft skin, red lips, so kissable.
    Hard to resist, so touchable.
    Too good to deny it.
    Ain't no big deal, it's innocent.

    I've never, ever heard of such a request. No wonder you were blown away.

    I love the suggestion to give her the number of a cleaning service. Hello????
