I am sure I have blogged about this before but I'm still having a hard time. I need you all's encouragement.
Ive been sporadically babysitting the two little ones I used to watch full time. The dad has some temporary work and has asked for my help. I don't make much watching them now because he doesn't get paid much and well, I lowered my price from 50 dollars a day to 25 so that we could both (my family and his) benefit from this situation. So 25 dollars isn't much for all the work it takes to watch these two little ones (ages eleven months and three years).
Well, last week when I watched them for two days I was just really overwhelmed. I have all my kids plus these to and that makes six kids. I HATE taking Skyler to daycare but I know if I keep him home tomorrow it will just be so overwhelming. It just feels weird to me to send off my kid for someone else to watch while I watch someone Else's kids...but I need the money and I need my sanity. Does that make sense? I just hate parting with my kids. It breaks my heart. Should I take him to day care while I am babysitting? UGGGGG!!!
He is doing so well at daycare. His potty training is still at a stand still. He is so stubborn but I still push through and I am not giving up. Today he was handing me some crayons and he counted to ten. TEN!!! I was shocked to say the least. My baby can count to ten. So I know that daycare is really doing him good. He is learning, he isn't eating at school(we call it school) so he is STARVING when he comes home but otherwise doing so very well and I am pleased. I just miss him dearly when he is gone.
School starts on Tuesday so things will settle down a bit and maybe I can get a few more babysitting days in for extra money. I have a job interview for "gymboree" on Thursday so I am going to put my most happy singing voice on and dance my pants off. LOL They told me to be ready to sing and dance. Have I ever mentioned that I love to sing?
Well that's about it. I am still posting resume after resume. I also got my first cleaning job. It is only a once a month deep cleaning but Ill take what I can get. I am hoping (like you all said) that word of mouth will be my friend.
