Seasons of Life
We have many different seasons that we go through during our childrearing years and I have hit a new one. My two oldest girls had their first babysitting job today. One of the ladies in town who is the oldest of seven called yesterday to see if the two older girls could babysit for about an hour. I told her that would be fine and I would bring them over since this was their first time going over to someones house to baby sit. When I got their I took them in and talked to the mom for a few minutes and encouraged them in some different areas and then I left. I came home and got my other children lunch and we all sat down to eat and then have quiet time. My mom asked me when I needed to pick them up and I told her that they would be getting dropped off about 1:00 p.m. I looked at my dad and said, "I am now venturing into a new season and I am the mom who is getting calls for her girls to babysit and no longer the mom looking for the babysitter." Pretty scary how quickly they grow up.
