Worth it?

This morning I started my childcare gig at the yoga studio. 2 hours of babysitting for unlimited free classes. It would seem like a good deal, right? Yes, except for that I had one 18 month old angel this morning who CRIED THE WHOLE TIME. Not true. She cried probably 3/4 of the time. The rest of the time she pointed at stuff and went "mmm MMM!" at me. Her mom could hear her screaming all the way down the hall in the studio and had to come console her halfway through class. I felt like a flop (I wasn't pinching her OR ANYTHING!) and I was trying everything I could think of: singing, demonstrating the fun toys, bouncing, letting her empty her diaper bag out, pointing at stuff out the window, snacks.

So...is yoga worth screaming children? I...think...so...

I am a full supporter of pinching. Just be sure to do it somewhere that be explained with a comment like "she ran into that table"! ha
