In the quiet times ....
troubleshooting life's dilemmas,
and contemplating how fortunate I am.
Recently, in doing all of the above, I was remembering back to my young self.
A young girl
that loved kids and babies
too young, in others minds, to be considered a baby sitter.
My friends were already babysitting.
They were the older siblings of large families.
Perhaps that fact made them more desirable.
I would dream of all the tools I needed.
pack n plays
I would use the sun room in our home to make a fun place to babysit.
it came to me
My young girl dreams came true!
I lived this dream.
Not so much as a young girl.
long after my own babies were grown.
Sparked by the need for someone to watch a new sweet baby boy.
More were added until I had a house full,
of sweet babies!
With a yard full of toys and rooms packed with toys,
pack n plays,
and some of the sweetest kids ever,
I spent my days doing just what I had wanted many years ago.
Braeden, Mackenzi, Nathan, Toria, Alison, Tori, Hannah, Jaina, Niko, Izel, Avery, Anthony and Michael.
Dreams do come true.
I have been blessed!
