    And So Do the Kids

    We were at the park Thursday night. The baby climbed the stairs to the tube slide and my son climbed up from the inside to meet her. She was hesitant to go so he sat in front of her, held her legs and down they went. She was so excited to be a big girl and I couldn't wait to get...

    The Babysitting Excuse

    Whenever I babysit kids for a couple of days, I like to take them to the playground during the evening time. It's so nice because it isn't hot and we get to go down the slides and play on the swings (the swings are my favorite) and there's this one great place that I can take the...
