“I expect you three to keep a close eye on (y/n)! If I wasn’t in a rush, I would’ve found someone else to babysit, just don’t burn down the house and behave in front of her!” Arthur hissed as he quickly grabbed his keys and left the house. Francis smirked as Arthur’s car slowly drove away as he grabbed the phone and dialed Gilbert and Antonio.
“Ja?” Gil’s voice asked
“Mon ami, come over to Arthur’s house to keep me company while I watch (y/n). Bring Toni too!” Francis chuckled
“Ja! Ve’ll bring beer too!” Gilbert laughed as he hung up. Francis turned to look at (y/n), who held a certain yellow bear in her arms. That bear was Winnie the pooh, a popular storybook animal that was the star of an old book that is based off a real young boy’s adventures with his stuffed animals.
“Bonjour ma petite fleur, I see you have a Winnie the pooh toy!” Francis cooed at her. (y/n) was roughly the age of two and a half, and beginning to talk. She nodded and clutched him tightly.
“Zhe awesome me has arrived!” Gilbert yelled as he carried a case of booze and Antonio who brought a grocery bag of assorted junk food. (y/n) had only seen Antonio once and never met Gilbert.
“Hola chica!” Toni smiled as (y/n) shyly waved a chubby hand at him.
“So zhis is (y/n) eh? What a cute little girl!” Gilbert laughed as (y/n) closely examined him with her large (e/c) eyes.
“Arthur couldn’t find a sitter in time so he called me to watch her” Francis explained
“I see she likes that Pooh bear toy a lot” Toni mused as (y/n) carried the bear around as if it were magnetically attached to her.
“It appears he left us instructions” Francis picked up a piece of paper next to the front door.
Watch Winnie the pooh for half hour
Read her Winnie the pooh
Put her to bed with nightlight on
Side note: If (y/n) begins crying, check hallway closet and figure it out’
“How strange” Toni muttered
“I say it’s beer time!” Gilbert yelled as he popped the cap off a beer bottle. The jolting ‘Pop’ noise frightened (y/n) as she began wailing.
“Damn it Gil!” Toni hissed as he and Francis rushed over to the hallway closet.
“Stop crying little one!” Gilbert panicked and tried bouncing (y/n) in his arms. She screeched louder and sobbed.
“You’ve got to be joking….” Francis spat as he and Antonio stared at three costume. A Winnie the pooh, tigger, and piglet costume.
“We have to wear these?” Antonio huffed and pulled them out.
“Ja if we want her to stop crying” Gilbert sighed as (y/n) continued sobbing.
“You be Tigger”
“No, I’ll be tigger!” the two argued until (y/n) stopped for a moment upon seeing the costumes.
“Uncle alfie gotta be tigger” she whimpered
“Alfred’s not here ma petite fleur. Who should be tigger?” Francis cooed
“Toni” she pointed at the Spaniard as he grinned while Francis shot him a glare
“Who’s gonna be piglet?” he asked
“Uncle Mattie” she added
“Matthew’s not here either” Francis sighed
“You, froggy” she pointed at Francis as he froze
“Froggy!? I guess Arthur’s rubbed off on you, ma belle” Francis sighed while Gilbert and Antonio restrained laughs as he grabbed the pink suit and slipped it on.
“Now is Gilbert gonna have to be Winnie the pooh?” Francis asked
“No, Iggy” she shook her head
“Arthur’s gone too, so Gil’s gonna be pooh bear” Francis shot a smirk at Gilbert as his red orbs widened in terror
“Oh no, keep that thing away from me!” Gil spat as Antonio and Francis shoved and forced the costume on him.
“ok, (y/n) now time for dinner” Francis stated as he looked at the paper again.
“chippies!” (y/n) yelled as they tried to figure out what ‘chippies’ was.
“I think she means fish and chips, right (y/n)?” Antonio asked as she bounced up and down and nodded
“I am not making that English garbage he calls food” Francis hissed
“I’ll make her something” Gil shoved them aside as the two watched him cook. He poured several different ingredients together in a pot and simmered them. He served (y/n) a plastic bowl and handed her a spoon. (y/n) eyed the soup before taking a small bite.
“What is that stuff?” Toni looked at Gil as he smirked triumphantly.
“Its this weird soup my vatti taught me to make. Ludvig ate zhe stuff all the time as a kid” Gil sighed at the fond memory as (y/n) happily ate the bowl clean.
“Now it is bath time” Francis smiled as (y/n)’s eyes bulged as she forced herself out of her highchair and bolted.
“Get back here!” Francis yelled as the trio raced to capture the toddler.
“No bath!” (y/n) yelled as Gilbert held her.
“Pooh bear says you have to!” Gilbert retorted as he carried her into the bathroom while Francis started the warm water to fill the tub.
“Does this mean we have to see her birthday suit?” Antonio mentioned as all three of them froze. None of them had ever bathed a little girl before, only Ludwig, Lovino and Matthew.
“I’ve only seen a grown woman’s body, not a toddlers!” Gilbert added
“I’ll do it” Francis sighed as he led (y/n) inside. He added bubbles to the water as (y/n) sat and played with them while he massaged shampoo into her damp (h/l) (h/c) hair. He quickly rinsed her off with water as she held her eyes shut to avoid the painful sting of soap.
“Time to get out now” Francis lifted her out and dried her off with a (f/c) towel.
“All cleaned now let’s get you into pajamas” Antonio smiled as he and the other two males followed her to her room as she selected her pajamas which consisted of a (f/c) nightgown.
“Story!” (y/n) yelled as the three sat and took turns reading the thick Winnie the pooh book.
By the time the three finished, (y/n)’s eyes were droopy.
“Night night pooh, night night tigger, night night piglet” she yawned as she was overpowered by sleep.
“Goodnight ma fleur” Francis softly kissed her forehead
“Night chica, sleep tight” Antonio kissed her cheek
“Dream of awesome things (y/n)” Gilbert softly laughed and kissed her other cheek
“Now we can have fun” Gil quietly shut (y/n)’s bedroom door as they shed the costumes and walked downstairs.
“I’m back, I had to fetch Bermuda from daycare, she bit the teacher again” Arthur sighed
“She started it first” Bermuda added
“What the bloody hell!?” Arthur gasped as empty beer bottles, and junk food wrappers were strewn across the floor. Francis, Gilbert and Antonio were passed out on the sofa, watching Winnie the pooh.
“You three wake up and clean up this mess!” Arthur yelled
“Good luck with that” Bermuda looked up at him
“You’re still in trouble” he added at the territory
“Not as much as these guys” Bermuda shrugged
“I never should’ve left (y/n) in their care….” Arthur sighed
“Oh look, Oreos!” Bermuda sat down and watched the movie as she nibbled on the cream filled cookies.
“Stop eating those and go to bed!” Arthur barked and she got up and carried the package
“Give me those!” Arthur snatched the package of cookies as she scowled and walked upstairs.
“I guess I’ll have to yell at them in the morning” Arthur groaned as he trudged upstairs and went to his room to sleep for the night.
