A New Job

Yesterday Cassidy had her first real babysitting gig away from home.  She has babysat a ton here at the house while I have been here and she is an angel with the kiddos but this was the real deal.  She was so excited she told me she woke up every two hours until 5:26 am and then couldn't go back to sleep.  She was completely prepared with a back back full of games and crafts and another filled with prizes and snacks.  We made her up a list of things to do - Games, Water Activities and Quite Time Activities.  The best part that she's most excited about's going to be every Tuesday form 10am-3:30pm!

I hope she keeps her love of babysitting.  I always loved to babysit - still do!  I was even a Nanny at one point and loved every minute of it.  I just can't believe that she's old enough to do this!

I guess this means Miss Amberly and I are on our own on Tuesdays.  We'll miss you Cass♥

Activity List has been requested.  We went to Joann's and the $1 Dollar Store and got a bunch of fun activities to put in her bag to take with her each time.  The kids got to pick one thing from each catagory.  It was a HIT!  She did an excellent job and we are so proud of her♥

It looks like you have been having a great summer so far. I haven't read blogs for a few weeks, but trying to catch up now. She looks like she would be the funnest babysitter.

Wow, babysitting age already! Zack was asking how he could earn extra money, and I thought of babysitting. Good for her, she will be great!

I'm loving your blog. I'm so glad you commented on mine.

Sounds like a well prepared babysitter. I'm sure the kids will love having her. I know mine did when they came with things to do.
