Having my sister live close has it's benefits, the biggest one being child care. We've also been blessed with many dear friends that are like family to us. It's so nice to have free babysitting when you have a temple night, date night, classroom helper day, doctors appointments etc...So when it's our turn to babysit we try to make sure the kids have a good time with wholesome activites...
On a recent visit to our house my neices and my girls painted each others faces. They loved it, very wholesome, very fun.
Sometimes we have a hot chocolate party, sometimes they play beauty parlor or dress up and with the all the snow we've had we don't hesitate to send them outside to play.
Sometimes they get a little messy, but look how happy he is!
Sometimes we don't have the right clothes when they need a wardrobe change, but look how comfy...(Aidan's pj's say "Daddy's Little Girl" and pink is definitely Jack's color)
And you know what, sometimes, a sweet liitle boy wants to be a princess, and we are not about to crush his dreams. So of course we do our best to accomodate...Look how precious!(If only I could get the video to work so you could see Seth dance and sing)
So remember us the next time you need a babysitter, your child will be in good hands and very entertained. We may even be able to make their dreams come true.(But we are not responsible for future cross dressers)
