I am not a babysitter as such...
...but I was looking after my cousins during the day. I was about 16, they were 5 and 3.

We were playing in the garden and I was taking it in turns to hold their hands and swing them round fast, eventually putting them back on the ground to see the dizzying effects.

The elder cousin (the girl) was loving it and laughing when she was all wobbly. The younger one (the boy) just cried when I finished.

And he cried some more. He cried lots in fact and wouldn't stop crying.
He was still crying a few hours later when his parent's arrived home.

Eventually a trip to the hospital revealed that my super-fast spinning and resulting centrifugal force had dislocated his elbow.

I guess they don't make 3 year olds like they used to.

bad babysitting!

Doctor Nick!

Actually, this is a very, very common injury in children that age, as the tendons are all soft and wobbly like spaghetti. So don't feel too bad.

You evil.
