Babysitting FUN

I started "babysitting" Zander and Parx back in October so their mom could go to school. It was 2 hrs every morning. Now I am watching them 3 hrs, 3 times a week and 2 hrs the other 2 days.

They eat breakfast at our house. I make german pancakes on Friday which the kids all love. The other days it is usually either cold cereal or pancakes. All four kids get along really well. They play together nicely and have so much fun. Hide-n-seek is probably their favorite game. We attempt to work on letters and sounds of the alphabet to help all the kids learn. Sometimes, they would rather play games.
Cooper really likes the boys. He calls them by name, gives them hugs, and returns the toys/blankets they bring to our house before they walk out the door. Being able to watch them is a huge blessing. I get to earn a little money while I play with my kids. What a relief! I actually wish I watched them 4 hours a day!!!
We have lots of fun together. I'm grateful for this opportunity. Cadence loves having them come over every morning. Somedays, she doesn't want to go to pre-school because she wants to play with them!
