Babysitting may seem like the easiest gig ever. Who wouldn’t want to sit around watching TV and making sure a baby eats every little bit and sleeps comfortably? However, babies are scary things, being way too delicate and fragile for all of the fun things life offers. When a Swedish couple, Erica and Hannes, was deemed with babysitting a friend’s six-month-old for a day, they were given a laundry list of things to do/not do that might come up with their time with the little guy. Still, I’m pretty confident their friend’s list didn’t include animal attacks and alien abductions.
In their photo series Adventures in Babysitting, Erica and Hannes photoshopped precarious dangers that faced the trio during their day together. The couple even gave hourly reports to their friend, letting them know that everything was A-OK, all things considered. The last time I babysat my nephew, he fell asleep an hour into it. Little did he know the adventure was just beginning… but that’s another story for another time. Enjoy Erica and Hannes’ Adventures in Babysitting photos below!
