Five Kids, One Auntie and NO Wipes

If you can handle caring for a dementia patient sundowning, an ETOH patient in withdrawal, while hanging a cardiac drip on an unstable arrhythmia patient all at the same time — you can take on a niece and four nephews at the hotel alone…
At least until your sister sends you on a scavenger hunt at IKEA, on a Sunday, for a table you’ve never seen, with the 5 children, one who dirties his pull-up and all of them suddenly “starving” — then I suggest bringing back up, because unless you’ve managed a pack of velociraptors on your own — you have no idea what you are setting yourself up for.
I’m pretty sure she just punked me. Even the cashier laughed until she had tears in her eyes.
