The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 482: Babysitting Blues
Author's Notes: Written for jsks’s prompt ‘Helping Tosh babysit’.

Set about a month before my drabble ‘Christmas Delivery’. I forgot I’d written this, it’s been lurking amongst a bunch on drabbles waiting to be posted.

Summary: Tosh is stuck babysitting her friends’ children.

Tosh, heavily pregnant with her and Owen’s first child, had been lumbered with babysitting duty because Jack claimed it would be good practice for her.

Anwen was three and into everything, while Meriel, at ten months, was alternating between high-speed crawling and rather precarious attempts at walking, all of which was making Tosh feel rather frazzled.

Just as she was beginning to wonder if she’d be able to cope with looking after her own child, due in less than two months, help arrived.

Settled on the playroom couch, sipping tea, Tosh could finally relax.

Fluffs, it seemed, made excellent babysitters!
