Twelve Years in the Making...

Twelve years and four younger brothers later, Sommer is an official babysitter! She took a fabulous babysitting course last week at the hospital. The 6 hour course, covered everything from choking to behavior management and InfantChils CPR to Safety for the Sitter. I was thrilled to see the "behavior management" portion and took a moment to go over it for a few of our "problem children." Great stuff. She looks like she is really prepared to take on this important responsibility. She was so excited on a couple of her first jobs, that she made her own babysitting bag, full of books, toys and other helps for entertaining the troops! Her little brothers absolutely love when she babysits them!

I am so thrilled to hear a qualified babysitter lives so close. I will be looking for an opportunity for Somer to use her skills and her babysitting bag!
