CHILDREN are a lot easier to look after than everyone makes out, according to an aunt who has completed a trouble-free half hour.
Nikki Hollis began looking after her three-year-old niece Emilia earlier this morning and has already concluded that parenting is actually pretty simple.
She said: “My sister goes on and on about how exhausting and stressful it is. She always was a whiner.
“We’ve played in the garden, eaten some fruit and read part of a book. Em’s been an angel. I guess some people just don’t have the knack.”
Hollis plans to continue her role as an inspirational aunt over a lunch prepared by her sister and hopes by the end of the day to have taught her niece to read.
She is expected to be discovered at the end of the day – following Emilia’s violent, screaming tantrum and outright refusal to sleep – smoking out of the bathroom window while her niece eats chocolate buttons in front of ‘whatever the fuck is on Netflix’.
