I have been babysitting for what seems like forever, and it's something that I really enjoy doing. I started over ten years ago, so the families that I've been babysitting for have changed some. It makes me sad when a family outgrows me, but I understand that their children get older, and they don't need me anymore... that's life! It happens to every family at some point!
I have recently found some AWESOME families that I have been able to work with, and I really enjoy going to spend time with them. I love my regulars that I watch on a consistent basis, but the new families have added some joy and new connections that are a blessing!
I will continue babysitting until I absolutely cannot anymore, which in my eyes will be never, because I enjoy it so much :-)
