Baby Sitting

I know you have pondered, often, the origin of the term ‘baby sitting.’  Likely spent hours thinking about it, haven’t you?

Yes.

Well, you need to get a life…..but other than that, I’m going to tell you where the phrase arose:

Bird update:  Two or three little ones have arrived.  I can’t quite see to count.  (Yes, I can count.  At least to three, but I’m digressing here.)  Both Mom and Dad are busy feeding them.  Fun to watch.

After the little ones are full and Mom is tired, Dad takes off (likely to cavort with the other new fathers) and Mom SITS on the kids!  This is called……BABY SITTING.

So now you know.  Ponder no more.
