I love treats and my kidos

We made monkey bread for treats tonight and when I turned them upside down on a plate Sinclaire's eyes got really big and she said, "Oooooooooooooo, that is sooooooo big." To be a kid again and to get excited about treats. I mean I still get excited about the treats, but in the back of my mind I hear a tiny little voice saying, "Fatty, fatty, fat, fat." Does anyone else hear that voice, or is it just me?

I did something new today. I hired a babysitter. I know, I know I have three little kids and my oldest is four and a half. You are probably saying it is about time. So I will report on how it goes, I am sure it will be great. The girls will love it because they will pretty much get to do what ever they want. And they wont have to beg someone to play with them. And I don't have to put them to bed. I get all this for just a small fee. I am not sure what the fee is yet, do you have any suggestions? What is the going rate for a babysitter these days?

I always ask my babysitter's parents...I have "overpaid" before and had the parents complain.

I love treats and I have the loudest guilt trip voice ever!! I take one day completely off a week. That helps. One day a week I can eat whatever I want and I don't have to listen to that voice. It's my reward for doing well the rest of the week. :)

I have NO idea on the babysitter thing. When we've had babysitters here at the house and actually paid them (non-family), which has been like twice since Andy was born, it all depended on how long they were here and what they did and how old they were. The most we've paid is 20 bucks because we REALLY needed a break and really appreciated her coming out. Oh, and your question earlier in the post, yes, I hear that voice ALL of the time! :D

Ya, I hear the voice too. It's quite unfortunate.
