My good friend Mrs. S was so kind to share her babysitter with us. We were finally able to call on her last week. It was only for a few hours and I did have her feed the children. Usually, when get a babysitter the most they have to do is give the kids a snack and put them to bed. This time I didn't think twice that the young lady couldn't handle feeding them and putting the Littles to bed. I was so right on this one.
She was playing with them before we walked out the door and my kids were actually excited (as they always are) that a babysitter was coming. Is this a bad thing on my part that they are excited??
While the babysitter was playing with the kids we went to dinner and then went to a talk by Fr Rocky of Relevant Radio. He spoke about five virtues to teach your children. I can't say enough what a great talk that was. You can read more about the talk here.
When we got home Miss H was doing her homework at the breakfast bar and gave us the following:
All the dishes were done, toys picked up and dirty laundry folded. We were both in amazement. We've only had a few babysitters, and this was the first time we had this caliber of babysitter. Now the only question was did the kids like her?
The next morning Karley asked if Miss H could bring her to school. There was an overwhelming consensus that they liked Miss H. The only downfall is that she's a senior and doesn't have a younger sister. We are going to take full advantage of dates until next August!
Have a great weekend!
