While talking with my sister on the phone tonight she brought up the fact that she and her fiance are going to her Christmas party this weekend. She knows I've been wanting and waiting for a chance to babysit (my niece is a little over 2 months old). She said "I don't think I feel comfortable with you babysitting..". I was shocked and a little offended that she wouldn't trust me to watch my own niece! I asked why and she said because I don't have any experience with kids or babies and she's not sure I would know what to do. Let me just say that my sister and I are full blood siblings and we are very close (we tell each other EVERYTHING). I don't smoke at all, drink occasionally on special occasions, I'm 25 years old, and I live with my long term boyfriend. I don't have any kids of my own yet but I'm responsible, independent, and I love my niece with all my heart. I may have been immature in the past but I am only 25 but still that's no reason to not trust your own sister. I would never let anything happen to my niece and I would live to babysit. What should I do?
