Babysitting....leaving the kids...and school
When I was young I think I was baby siting from the age of 12..multiple kids...for an entire Summer...We all know times have changed and trusting people with our children is always a concern. Up until tonight, our children have ONLY had a family member, grandma, older brother "baby sit" them.
Tonight this about to change!
We are blessed to have great neighbors who have three daughters who happen to be triplets. They turn 13 this month (my where did the time go...)! My children love them and I would bet that the feeling is mutual.
Last Summer they came over 1 day a week and worked for us as a "mother's helper"...this year they are repeating that (started yesterday). Gives me a chance to catch up on house work, laundry, coupon cutting, returning phone calls...you know the things that always get pushed off because our children need our attention.
SOO... tonight my husband has a colleague of his that is taking him (and now me - insert Happy dance) out to dinner to a local restaurant that we LOVE....I saw an opportunity for us to be out of the house without children for a few hours and only less than 2 miles away! You betcha I jumped at it.
So I asked our neighbor if the girls would want to come and babysit...for a few hours! They took us up on our offer! Funny thing is, I am not nervous at all to leave them in their hands...
School these past few days - it's been raining cats and dogs and I think I saw a few ducks even...
