Baby Sitter

Today I left the kids with a honest to goodness babysitter for the first time. I was a bit hesitant, but I have heard only wonderful things about the girl that came over so I wasn't scared at all about that. It was more a fear of how my kids would be for her. I shouldn't have worried at all, because they had a blast. They did playdoh, played duck duck goose and Mother May I, and made me some cute cards.

When I got home and was making a snack for the monkeys I made a discovery. The following text-versation (in exact form) came quickly after.

S: Ha! That girl did our dishes!

K: What?????!!!!! I will commence the adoption proceedings.

S: She washed the dirty ones...BY HAND!!!

K: Ok kidnapping is much faster

Seriously, where has she been all my life? I hope she doesn't have any big summer plans, haha, because she just made one more satisfied customer.

Oh, and on the way home from dropping her off the kids asked if we could do that again tomorrow.

Is it who I think it is? I know our babysitter does dishes too. She's a keeper!

Don't just love GREAT babysitters. I had one in SC that would do the same thing. My boys love the girls we have had here--they're so much more fun than mom.

Kristy, it is who you think it is! And she is too cute! and Danielle, you are SO RIGHT! When I came in the door and said, "I'm hooome", Brady goes, "Awww man!" LOL

My boys love it when the babysitter comes. They will ask me when Daddy is going to take me on a date again. I think a lot of the young women do dishes, because ours has been known to do them, as well.

Could someone fill me in?? Who who is it? And I am so sorry I missed seeing you the other day, I was having a "I have 4 kids and one that screams nonstop" mental of a day. I would like to hang out soon!

Shannon said...

It's KBugs, does that give it away? Not sure if her Mama wants her name on the internets or not, haha! And yes, we missed you at Noelle's but i hear ya on the mental days, haha, we will have to make another date soon!

That is awesome! I need to tell my girls to do that when they babysit. Unfortunately for us they watch the kids a lot and don't feel the need to clean since it's their home. :) But I will let them know to do that when they go to someone else's house. How nice!!! I wish we could find a sitter like that or a sitter period. I'm sure the girls would like a break.
