Ever heard of hair chalk? Yeah. I am seriously considering it. Not that my life needs any extra pizaz. This week I spend my time researching UK universities, scholarships, and potential jobs. Plus I had a chance to try my hand at overnight babysitting with some of my favorite people in the world.
Introducing, my favorite. I know. It isn’t nice to have favorites. I am not a nice person.
What a priviledge. I was getting discouraged on Friday since in an entire morning I got all of one half of an email checked of my to do list. Then I realized that I also managed to keep six kids alive and fed. Life of a mom I guess. I’m not sure I would be able to stay sane.
There are certainly perks to the job though. In the middle of the night a little boy woke up from a bad dream and tugged on my foot. The sinking of my heart upon realizing that I wasn’t going to get the sleep I needed was compensated for by the joyous realization that someone really needed me. On the one hand, chilling with a crying baby isn’t the most desirable 3am activity. Yet as I rooted for sleep in the tug o war my little girl was playing, I couldn’t help but feel privileged that the game was taking place on my shoulder.
