This is what happens when I leave for a bit

We are really fortunate to have Madison. She is a terrific babysitter for her little brothers. We jokingly refer to her as a 'born dominatrix.' This kid is a take charge kind of gal and is pretty smooth and collected in a moment of chaos. In addition to her child care skills, she also is a super little baker and cook in the kitchen. As I write, she is in the kitchen making Marc's famous cheesecake recipe since she felt short-changed on the last one.

While she supervises the boys fairly well, she also manipulates them to her own amusement and enjoyment. We have had many pictures posted before of her dressing Jerome as her little sister complete in Christmas taffeta dresses and now this:

I think Jerome is the most accomodating of the boys, hence he suffers at Madison's hands and bears the stigma of her embarassments. I suppose that in years to come, Jerome will want these pictures burned and forgotten, but Madison will forever have the joy in her heart of cross-dressing him and making him look like a sleep-deprived clown. These two are a perfect pair since they are on polar opposites of the personality spectrum and Madison can push his gentle soul around like one of her own fingers. Oh the joy of family life.
