The search for a babysitter is over.
For Ainslie Tricolours ruckman Simon Horner is done, and there can be no better way to sign off.
Ainslie claimed their fourth consecutive AFL Canberra premiership in a 57-point win over the Belconnen Magpies at Manuka Oval on Sunday.
The 13.8 (86) to 3.11 (29) triumph puts the club in esteemed territory - something Horner is struggling to come to grips with.
Their 28th flag marks just the fourth time a club has won four titles in succession since the advent of the competition in 1924.
The Tricolours claimed six straight titles from 1992-97 to surpass the mark Eastlake set with five from 1962-66, while the Sydney Swans (four from 2005-08) are the only side to achieve the feat in the modern era.
Couple that extraordinary achievement with an Alex Jesaulenko Medal as the best on ground, and there is not one part of Horner that could contemplate going around again.

Because now it is family time.
"I'm done, 100 per cent done," Horner said.
"I'm 36 this year, with work I travel a bit so I'm moving to Sydney very shortly. This is done, there is no coming back.
"To finish on a high, you can't ask for anything else. You'd give the best on ground medal back as long as the premiership comes, I'm happy with that.
"I've got a wife [Nikki] and two kids, Ella is six and Aden is four, they're so supportive. My wife is in real estate, [so we need] a lot of babysitters for training, a lot of babysitters for games.
"If she wasn't so supportive, I wouldn't play. I'm very thankful to have a supportive family."
Family - it's what football clubs pride themselves on.
Rarely could it be more evident than it has been around the Ainslie football club this season.
The family of Tricolours mentor Chris Rourke has been coming to grips with his wife Julie's battle with cancer this season and scores of players went around one more time for their coach.
Among them was Aaron Wiles - the captain for whom a premiership has never felt so sweet.
"It's unbelievable. The feeling in this room, to see Rourkey's family in here with the Ainslie family is unbelievable, it's pretty hard to describe," Wiles said.
"This place just makes you feel like home. It's so welcoming, from footy to life and to work, they just look after each other.
"When you see someone hurting, everyone rallies around."
So of course they were not going to let this opportunity slip - the defending premiers kicked the first five goals of the game to set up an unassailable lead.
Hayden Armstrong would boot four and Jordan Doering another three as they key forwards reaped the rewards of Ainslie's ability to shut down a star-studded Magpies midfield.
Belconnen were left to rue missed opportunities inside their forward 50 as they posted three goals in their third grand final loss in five seasons.
"We've had such a big year. Players make coaches and these boys have been fantastic to me," Rourke said.
"We've got some great leaders in the club and they set a really good example for our younger blokes.
"Hopefully they continue on."
