Adventures in Babysitting while helping friends!

My lifelong friends, Ashely Jenni and Kelly lost their grandmother last week.  She was a beautiful woman, one of the last of the group of "old ladies" we learned so much from.  She's up there with my grandmother now and they're probably cooking some wonderful Italian dishes...in fact, I think I can smell it now!  Mmm!

While my friends were dealing with an incredible loss, I offered to watch Jenni's little girl, Jillian and Kelly's son, Blake!  These kiddos had a wonderful time wearing me out, having fun, going for golf cart rides, feeding the ducks and MORE!  

Can you see all those red cheeks and smiles??  


We played games, watched movies, ate snacks and played in the backyard for a long time!

It was Adventures in Babysitting for me, helping me understand that I don't think I could handle FOUR children at all times...it was hard work, let me tell ya!  But I love these kids and have known their mothers for a really long time, so it was wonderful seeing all of our kids having such a great time together since most of my childhood and teenage memories involve their Mommies!

Girls, I am sorry for your loss but she's up there watching over you and your families now, and probably having a great time with your PaPa and all of her friends :)

I am so sorry to hear of their loss. It is so sad. My grandmother and I were so close. You are right about learning so much from them. That was so nice that you took care of the munchkins. I hope you are well my friend.
