Standing Up To Life Book 2 Ch 36 Pt 6

I was about to change her when I heard a car pull up. I’d already picked Brittany up though so I decided just to go ahead and change her. There was just enough light from the two night lights in the room that I put down on the table and took the diaper off gently.

I managed not to throw up as I changed her - it was really gross! As I was changing her I heard her Mom come up behind me. “I could have done that,” she told me.

“I figured I might as well do it,” I replied as I finished taping up he new diaper. She did take the dirty one and emptied it into the toilet before putting it in the trashcan. In the meantime I put Brittany back in bed and covered her. I was amazed that she hadn’t woken up even a tiny bit during all of this.

I followed Mrs. Lind out to the living room where she said, “Thanks so much for watching them for us Tiffany. Did you have any problems?” she asked me.

“No, not really. Jamie wasn’t real happy with her pull-up. She tried to make me think she had put one on at first - I could tell she hadn’t - then she ask me to help her put it on. It was kind of strange,” I told her.

“That is odd. She was probably just jealous of the attention you were giving Brittany. Every once in a while she does stuff like that. No big deal though,” she told me with a smile. “So let’s get you paid,” she said.

She reached into her purse and handed me a stack of twenty dollar bills. “Is a hundred-and-forty enough?”

I just about coughed at that point… “…Are you sure you want to pay me that much?” I asked her.

“Absolutely. That’s a very fair rate for watching two kids for seven hours,” she told me.

“Well. I won’t turn it down,” I said with a small smile.

“Good, we’ll have to have you come and sit for us again. You seem to have done a good job with them. I think you must have even cleaned up the living room a bit,” she said.

“Well thanks again,” I told her as I went out the door and walked across the street to my house. She watched me from her door until I was home; then turned out her porch light.

It was about 11:30 when I entered my house. I expected to find everyone sleeping - but both my Mom and Dad had waited up for me. “Everything go alright?” Mom asked me.

“Yeah… though I think she overpaid me,” I told her.

“How much did she pay you?” she asked.

“A Hundred-and-forty!” I said, both excited and squeamish.

“Wow, she was pretty generous. But she’s also right that it really isn’t as much as some people would ask for. It’s a great way for you to make some extra money.”

“Yeah I guess so. Anyway, I’m tired - I  think I’m going to go to bed,” I told her and Dad.

“Goodnight Sweetie,” Mom said to me as I went into my room. I put on a pair of pyjamas and drifted off to sleep very quickly. What a couple of days!
