Overnight babysitting and a possible threat.

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.

Come join me on my quest to become the next Ms. Frizzle!

  1. I've heard of hair chalk but I've never tried it…if you do it, you should share a picture! I'm thinking of getting a haircut…that's about as daring as I'll get this year! haha
