Those with more than one kid, I mean. I had Jesse today, plus two girls I often watch when their regular sitter can't. I'll have them all week. Then this a.m. a very good and very old friend of mine called. She's been in town all week b/c her mother's in the dying process. Well, her Mom died this a.m. so could I watch the girls (20 months and 3 yo). The only other person in town she trusts to watch them works f/t so I was her only option. "SURE" I pop out with. So she brings them over. WOW! Thankfully one of the older girls is 10 yo and LOVES little girls so she was a huge help! Plus, it's so freakin' hot right now there's no way I could take someone else's kids outside to play. It's always hot here, but right now we're under heat advisory so it's even worse.
Selfish as this sounds I'm glad the mother's service is Saturday and not Monday. Monday will be a year since Mark died. A funeral just isn't what I had in mind for that day, although I would've gone.
