Why Do They Call It Babysitting?

Currently, I am babysitting. Except, the baby is asleep so he is not "sitting." Also, he is not a baby, he is two. So, am I babysleeping then? Or possibly toddlersleeping? Also, more than not, a baby will not sit. Mostly cries and poops. And occasionally slobers and throws up on you. Okay, I give up. I have no idea what it is I am doing lol!

Babysitting I guess means you are sitting in front of the baby watching it. I guess that can't be it either. You're not aways sitting when you are babysitting. Especially if the "baby" can run from room to room. Maybe what you do for the most part is babyrunning. This maybe the most accurate since most of the time when you're done you're pretty doggone baby tired. Then you want to sleep like a baby. Oh, baby. What else can I say?

Well babies do sit normally around 6 months, them crawl, then walk which is them toddling. Haha babysitting is interesting when you think of why is it called babysitting. Is because you have to sit the baby somewhere to watch him or here and I'd that's the case woke to it for the first few months be babylaying.
