it felt so strange to have saturday off from the store! i don’t remember the last time that happened.
a few weeks ago, we arranged that may 12th would be extended babysitting opportunity #2 for the 12 days of kiki project. [hence today's title: saturday's date in numbers, then the twelve for the 12 days of kiki, project #2, date #2]. i was able to swap my usual saturday hours for my colleague’s wednesday eve shift (had to skip aunti wednesday), and presto! saturday in TO was on!
i started my day with a drive to food basics for essentials: coffee! carbonated water! sardines, $0.88 per tin, on sale!
then, i popped over to mom and dad’s for an early mother’s day moment with mom:
we anticipated that sunday would be busy with g’ma’s bday celebration, so saturday worked out well for some mother-daughter visiting.
i had time to go see the blanket!
early aft, it was time to head down the 401 for the day’s main event – babysitting little e and cutie c!!!
we played downstairs for a while:
sure we can play with every toy available…
the girls were pretty zonked from a busy morning:
look who was on treehouse channel!
and the girls introduced me to a new show:
the brother and sil ana planned an easy and appealing treat dinner:
i almost forgot to share the big news of the day:
can’t end without a group photo:
bedtime was a breeze. is there anything better than snuggling with storytime?
i feel so lucky when i get to spend time with my little princesses – they fill my ♥ with joy. i’m definitely going to encourage the brother and sil ana to book me for as many extended babysitting days as we can manage, this year!
parallel parking: rate your skillz on a scale of 1-10. me = 4. it’s completely hit or miss: when my aim is good, it’s very, very good, and when i’m off, it’s positively hideous. the only time i absolutely nailed the parallel park was on my driving exam, way back when – whew!
