Care taking is not the easiest thing to do in the world, especially when it comes to babies.There are some things you have to learn to be an expert care taker...and then there are things you should already know just from common knowledge. Its not rocket science. That's why I don't understand why people just don't know some of the most obvious things. It's like they don't even consider using common sense. Prime example, I was sitting on the couch one day at home and I started eavesdropping on a conversation my mom and sister was having.

"Is everything okay with Nah'la?" my mom said with a worried look on her face.
"I don't know she's fussy and I have no idea why" my sister said in a puzzled tone.
"Well I know she's not hungry for sure because she just ate not even 30 min. ago" my mom said reassuring my sister.
"I don't know what to do" my sister sounded frustrated.
When I heard my sister say that, that's when I knew it was my time to get up and do something. So I got up to see what the problem was. The first thing I did was check my niece's diaper to see if she was wet. Not only was she wet but she had left us a little present too.

I looked straight at my sister and asked did she check Nah'la's diaper. She said no. ??????? What do you mean "no"?????? Common sense would have told her to check the diaper first. It's not that hard to look inside a diaper. That was just so unbelievably stupid to me. I changed my niece and she stopped crying just like that! It was like magic! After that I turned to my sister and said sarcastically "Oh yeah that was real hard." You use common sense in your everyday life. It doesn't stop when your'e taking of someone. As a matter of fact, that's when you should use it more. You have to use every inch of knowledge you have in your brain when your'e taking care of a person. You never know what could be wrong. That's why you use common sense. Common sense almost never steer's you wrong. Take it from me I should know. I use it all the time!
