The Babysitter

I'll be the first to admit that I am not a big fan of the boys babysitter but sometimes I have no other choice. For instance, once a month the Community Council I am on has a meeting that I attend. Larry has often times been working so I load the boys in the car along with their babysitter and head to the meeting. They sit in the back of the room and play with their babysitter while I and the other board members discuss the community. Tonight was another good example of how the babysitter can be helpful. I am on the Enrichment Committee(or whatever it is called now) for Relief Society and was helping get the birthday party set up and cleaned up. I was there from 5:30pm to 8:30pm and the boys, of course, were with me. Again, they were very entertained by the babysitter. Three hours for anyone can be a long time just sitting around with nothing to do but the boys were terrific and handled it well, thanks again to our great babysitter. Although I am not a big fan of the babysitter, I sure am thankful that those silly games can occupy their time while I am able to get things done.
