I may be the only reason my familys holidays go on without a hitch. I work as a butler during the holidays, I help where I can. I’m often told to do random tasks such as babysit, cook, or clean. I don’t mind since i’m the only one between the ages of 12-40 with the exception of my brother whom would never help.
This particular holiday was Thanksgiving this year. We went over to my uncle’s who I was named after, Ted. We brought some food but it was healthy so i had no part in making it. This was an easy holiday for me since i don’t have to cook or clean, i just have to watch the kids. All my cousins on my dads side was there.
TJ, Ben, and Rachel my three younger cousins. TJ was old enough to stay quiet for more than a minute so he watched the football game with the family while I babysat Ben and Rachel. Ben and Rachel are about 7 I think and can only sit still with a video game in front of them. So take a guess what i did. I did what anyone would do and started playing video games with them.
My cousins are spoiled and each one of them had an iPad. They spent about 2 hours showing me all their apps before I could play any. But soon after i was kick off the iPad because “I’m bad at that game”. 10 minutes later the food was done, it was a normal thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberries, sweet potatoes, etc.
The meal was amazing and the company of family was even better.
