Back in September, I started babysitting an 8 month old baby boy while his Mama had her Pampered Chef meetings. Another friend of hers (that I also babysit for) recommended me and I’m glad she did! What a sweet little family.
I now spend my Tuesday evenings caring for this 8-month-old, blue-eyed doll.
….to the local bloggers meet-up!! Are you local? If you’ve heard of Rolla, Missouri, then you probably are! Come join us on September 11th if you are a fellow blogger! :o) We will be meeting for lunch and great conversation at a Chinese restaurant. Nice choice! I’m so excited that Mrs. Haid and Chrissy have planned [...]
Well, that was a quick break. Two more weeks ’til the next one! On Thursday morning, my Mom and I traveled 5.5 hours to visit my Grandma in North Missouri… where it is definitely not yet spring! It was cold, cloudy, and there was still snow on the ground. I didn’t think I would see [...]
How does time slip away so quickly? I haven’t blogged since Monday and I didn’t mean for that to happen. I can’t blame it on tests again… but I can blame it on the fact that I feel like the energy is sucked out of me every day. I hope I don’t bore you, but [...]
What did you do this weekend? I’ll tell you about mine, but it probably won’t keep your attention for long. Now just imagine living it if you can’t even read it. ;-) Usually I don’t like weekends… sounds weird, I know. But it makes sense when they are long and turn depressing because I get [...]
I’m still alive, incase anyone out there was starting to wonder about me and why I haven’t blogged since last year! I’ve been at my Grandma’s this week and away from my computer… and also hanging out with Ryan of course. I’m sure you’ll hear all about it soon. :) Happy 2010! It’s not really [...]
Lately I’ve played doctor, vet, pretended to be a hunter, watched the movie The Incredibles, read some books like The Berenstain Bears… but that isn’t anything new. I’ve been doing activities like this with little ones for many years (8 or 9!) now. I’ve always loved babies and then when I grew old enough to [...]
During my senior year of High School I worked at a daycare, my first official job (if babysitting is considered unofficial). I just worked after school hours, first with the school-agers, sometimes with the pre-schoolers, and later in the nursery. Three totally different atmospheres under the same roof. I learned many things in my 7 [...]
I have spent numerous hours with many different kids after babysitting for about 8 years now. As many people know, kids can say or do the cutest (or sometimes most shocking) things. A few stories I don’t want to forget… Back in October my Grandma was in the hospital after breaking her hip, and my [...]
