Our babysitters pay us!



When most people go out and leave their little angels with a babysitter...
they have to pay for the privledge..
Not so with us.....
They paid us instead!!!!



After all...who could resist the call to have this boy (shriek and all) in their house???
I know I would pay for the pleasure.....



.........Ok....So now the truth.......


We have never left Jeremy with ANYONE EVER...and decided it was high time to adjust the little darling to the idea...

before I snapped.

and taught the boy a shriek HE had never heard before...

So the hubby and I planned to go out for coffee for an hour and leave him with said grandparents
who have been dieing to have him.....

and they paid us for the pleasure.....

OK....Actually they gave Kendal some money and told him to take me somewhere for supper...

This leaves two possibilities open...

Either.....they hoped they were paying us off to leave him there LONGER then an hour...say the whole evening...You know..maybe the restaraunt could mess up our order three times and the meal could take 2 or 3 hours instead of 1....

OR my disposition has been horribly unpleasant, being locked up with only pre-school minds for company five days a week.....and they couldn't stand it anymore.....LOL!



We went to supper at Brewsters.......and had the Seafood Penne...
which was by the way....FANTABULUS.....(is that really a word...)

BUT we were only gone an hour....
Hard to enjoy yourself for long with thoughts like...
Is he crying...
Does he think we abandoned him
floating around in your head...

When we got back to Grandma and Grandpa however....
He was sitting quite quietly in a pile of toys...
babbling away...
I don't think he even realized we had gone anywhere...
Or if he did....he didn't care...
(traitor...)

Thanks for supper Grandma and Grandpa....Maybe we can have a little bit of a life again now once in a while.....

I think we have only had a babysitter for our 3 year old twice. My sister watched him when my daughter was in the hospital. I'm tagging you with a meme.

The first time is the toughest. 1 hour is hardly long enough for a date with your hubby(: It's nice to have the grandparents and not a stranger.

He became a traitor? Oh well, at least he didn't cry and made you feel guilty for leaving him behind! ;)

Yes - fantabulous is a word cuz I use it quite often :) AND... secondly, I'm not gonna be as nice as everyone else - you're pathetic! He's a year old! I can't tell you how many times I've left the baby already & he just turned three months! Suck it up mama! (you know I'm writing this with a smile right!?)
