I am babysitting my 2 younger granchildren. Rafael´s mother died this evening. Rafael wanted to go alone to take care of it all, but Claudia told him the sha was going with him. So the children came here and as I didn´t know at what time they would be taken home, I gave them dinner. Now Sofía is sleeping in my bed and Vicente is playing happiny with a nintendo I took from him at dinnertime. My daughter called me and she said she had no clue when they would be back. Rafael had gone with some of his brothers to do some errands that had to do with the funeral and she was with some of her in laws. I told them not to worry and she reminded me to remind Sofía to pee before going to sleep. Have you had to babysit on occations like these?

Yes, but for hospital trips, not deaths. So sorry for all of you. They are lucky to have you. And each other
