If you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at.

Linda, how much are the adults paying you to watch the kiddos for the summer?

They don't pay me!!! Lol
But it gives mom a break. She usually has the brunt of it. Now it's me.
Oh that's sad that they dump the grandkids off, just expecting her to be available everyday to watch their children. I would have never done that with my children, I respect my mother too much. I keep my gd in the summer months by my choice. The kids parents should be paying you something to keep an eye on your nieces & nephews 😢
Life has a way of throwing us curve balls, but with Faith, Family & Good Friends, we can find a way to overcome them!

Oh, BTW I was wondering how to you keep the slimy film from building up on waterer. I wipe them down everyday with a cloth before filling. And it's back next day. I also wash them with soap and water every two weeks and soak them in bleach water for about 30 mins. And then rinse and fill back up.


you keep it in the shade ?  I THINK  moms vinegar in the water helps but I dont use it because I dont much agree with all the hype about it.

My brother drops them close to everyday. My sister once in a blue moon for Doctor appointments. When I worked.. Devin and I use to work opposite hours so it wasn't required. We liked to have a babysitter for fun things. Lol

My mom refused to babysit unless it was her idea . I did too.  She would say, you made your bed, you lay in it.

These kids these days just think Mom & Dad should do it all. Not at my house, my girls knew if the wanted something than they were going to have to work to get it. We've never had extra money stashed under the mattress 😂

My oldest is babysitting 6 kids mon through Thursday all day for only 100 bucks a week. I tried to talk him out of it but he's a big boy and can decide.
Oh my garsh, I would so pick what I'm doing. I struggle with watching young kiddos. God gave me the love of children, but not the patience lol.
