Ello!~ May I request a headcanon for Bokuto and Tobio babysitting a smol 2 year old toddler with their s/o? You can choose the temperament of the kid XD Thanks! I really love your writing D: soooo in character! <3
sorry it’s taken so fookin long to get this out! Hope you’re doing well, and here you go!!
- The babysitting begins with optimism. It ends with fear.
- His s/o promises that it will be easy- Fun even. Bokuto gets excited at the idea since he actually really likes kids, and he’s fairly good with them.
- As soon as the toddler’s parents leave though, all hell breaks loose.
- It’s a classic case of “child appears sweet at first and then turns into a devil”.
- The toddler waddles around with intent to destroy, knowing over everything in their path and bursting into screeching tears out of seemingly nowhere. It scares Bokuto, since he doesn’t know how to react or what to do to get them to calm down.
- Bokuto’s s/o somehow manages to keep up with the kid, amazing Bokuto. He quickly realizes that he is not ready to be a parent just yet
(boi you’re in freakin high school calm yourself)
- Despite Bokuto fearing the child, he realizes they have a bit in common: Really likes being held by his s/o, eating, taking naps, and having somewhat random mood swings.
- The kid seems to have a death wish and toddles over to any pointy edge or possibly dangerous item in sight, forcing Bokuto and his s/o to constantly be on alert. Even beloved childhood shows don’t get the toddler to calm down.
- By the time they’re done babysitting, both have sworn off children until further notice and are completely exhausted.
- They’re happy with themselves, though. They managed to keep a two year old alive for several hours and have pockets full of cash. Overall, a frightening yet good experience.
- lol fuck optimism Kageyama is Ready For The End.
- The second his s/o proposes him coming along to help them babysit he rejects the idea. Wouldn’t he scare them?
- After his s/o manages to coax him into going along with it, the two arrive at the destination quickly and as soon as the toddler lays their eyes on Kageyama a staring contest begins.
- Kageyama’s pride doesn’t let him blink or look away- Until his s/o tugs on his arm to get him to move.
- The kid doesn’t seem to particularly like or dislike Kageyama, if anything they seem more suspicious of him (at least the feeling is mutual)
- When the toddler refuses to eat their food, his s/o (who had been doing most of the work) begs Kags to come try. For some reason, him saying “eat” was all the coaxing the kid needed and they chowed down on their meal.
- Kageyama chalked it up to his intimidating appearance, but his s/o insisted that it was simply that he was good with kids.
- After that, Kageyama and the toddler seemed to reach an understanding. Kageyama spoke to them plainly, mostly giving them little-worded directions, such as “No don’t go in there.” or “Stop that.” or “Come here so we can brush your hair.” And it worked.
- For some reason, Kageyama seemed to have a sort of calming affect on the toddler and the kid rarely ever cried out and was much more subdued than he’d expected them to be.
- His s/o insisted on him coming along to all of their other babysitting gigs.
