Last night was the final night with our summer babysitter. This is truly the first sitter that our son has looked forward to hanging out with. For their final evening, we sent them off to the local amusement park for an evening of rides and games. They had a great time. Can you tell?
We have all enjoyed our weekly date nights. Every Monday the kid would ask - when is the babysitter coming. Yesterday he was even counting dow -"she will be here in 4 hours Mom!" This week she is returning for her sophomore year of college. She has certainly set the bar very high for our next babysitter. She has been super responsible, polite, active with the kid and the best part - she geniunely enjoys hanging out with our son. It has been a win, win for all of us.
I'd love to think we could have the same setup for next summer, but something tells me she will get picked up for an internship. She wants to be a sports broadcaster and I think she would be fantastic!
