Baby Sitting Co-op

We had our first day of our newly formed Babysitting Co-op on Monday. I started it off since I chose to make myself available on Monday mornings. I had two kids from 9-12 am, we had a blast!

Then today, I swapped kids with the mom from yesterday, and she took mine for three hours this morning. I finally vacuumed the spilled baby powder from a week ago in the kid's room, cleaned up the dishes piled all over my kitchen, and drove around all morning collecting boxes for moving from various grocery store produce departments. All things that are not very much fun toting two kids. It was a nice break. What a great idea! :)

We do that in our ward here! I'd never heard of something like that until I moved here. It has saved me some days, although I don't use it much. There are about 8 sisters here that do it, and we switch weeks, and have a "shift" Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri. of every week. Olivia enjoys it and it is nice for me at times. Hope you have fun!

I'm super excited about it, too. I got to register Tyler for kindergarten yesterday BY MYSELF. I read a book while I waited instead of keeping kids quiet and calm and entertained for an hour. What a treat.

We still have some boxes from our move. Just let me know if you need them.

I haven't used it yet, but am really excited too. I am so glad we have such a great group of moms willing to do it! It is nice that it is working out so great already!
