....and it is not taking orders for double cheeseburgers, fries and a shake. (She said 'that got old' while she was dressed as a 50's car hop for Halloween!) She has her first official babysitting job this evening from 5:30 to 7:30. Scheduled for a few days now. Written on her calendar! She is excited and loves feeling a little more grown-up with such a huge responsibility. And she takes that responsibility very seriously. She is silly, fun and can pretty much talk any child into doing what they need to be doing without that child realizing what she is doing. She is talented that way. She has had great practice with Blake and with Brielle's little ones while they were here visiting! She is going to do a great job. I have no doubts!

  1. Oooh how exciting! I remember all to fondly my first baby sitting job!

    Good luck Kaia!

  2. Aaahhh. :) I started babysitting around 12 and 13 years old. Back in the day it felt so "normal" to be doing it, but looking back as a parent I'm SHOCKED that I was in charge of little people for such grand lengths of time. She will do GREAT. No doubts. There is just something in her eyes that speaks wisdom and responsibility. :)

  3. This is good to know. Maybe we will have to call her next time we want to go out.

  4. I think it is awesome that your kids look like mini April and Dave. They are way too cute & funny :)

  5. So do my kids not count as the offical first job? Just kidding! Kaia you will do great my kids still talk about you and how much fun you are! I wish you lived close to me, I would be getting you all the time girl.

  6. Congratulations Kaia!
    I started babysitting when I was close to her age and I still love it over 10 years later. Sometimes I think, "Will I one day be 'too old' to be a babysitter?", then I smash that thought right down, because no, I will never be too old and it will never get old.
    I hope Kaia enjoys it as much as I do!


I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
