It’s been almost a month since my last post. Oh crap. haha! Well, Life has gotten pretty busy, and I have less time on the computer, but more to do on it! I started babysitting one of John’s soldiers’ kids. His name is David and he’s a couple months younger than Easton, so I basically am having to watch twin toddlers and it isn’t a lot of fun. BUT, they are paying me $300 a month to do it! It’s not a lot of money, but it’s something, and us Army families help each other out. They originally offered $200 but I definitely thought that was too little, but I didn’t want to ask for too much. So, $300/month it is. That’s about $20 a day, so I think it’s fair. The main thing that sucks about it, is him and his wife are both military, so they both have to be at PT (physical training) in the morning at 6AM, which means I have to get up at 5:30AM when they drop him off here. Thankfully, he’s been pretty good about going back to sleep, as Easton usually sleeps til 9AM, I like to keep them relatively on the same schedule.
Last week was the first week of doing this, and it was a tough one. Day 1, Easton was fussing over every little thing, even when nothing was wrong. Day 2, David started doing the same thing. Day 3, they BOTH were whiny as can be, and day 4 finally settled down a little bit. I only had to watch him 4 days last week since Memorial Day gave us a holiday, and therefore, no one had to work Today, was a good day too. David didn’t want to go back to sleep this morning, however, I had to basically force him to take his bottle (the only way I’ve gotten him to nap) and then he woke up only about 10-20 minutes before Easton did, around 8AM. Then, they both went for naps at the same time and slept 3 hours!! That’s a record! But, it’s good! Long naps mean they are in better moods in the afternoon lol
Not much more is new… the house is still a mess, dog hair everywhere because the dogs are shedding from the heat, and they both need baths… John finally changed the shower head to the extendable one, so I really don’t have an excuse not to give them baths now…
