I’m sure most of you don’t mind that I’ve only been posting giveaways for the most part lately, but I still feel bad. So here’s a little update.
First of all, how do you parents do it that have children less than a year apart? Seriously. Given, my daughter and “L”, the boy we babysit, are only 5 months apart, but still. Compared to Myka, L is needy enough. I can’t imagine having a newborn right now with Myka becoming more and more mobile!
With that being said, I’m still having a really hard time adjusting to this babysitting thing. I don’t know what I was thinking when I agreed to babysit at THEIR house. (That’s not entirely true. I was thinking, “Oh, I can use my money and buy craft stuff to get my Etsy store going!” lol) On top of it being extremely inconvenient for us in more ways than not, it’s hard to get motivated to do anything productive when we get home. Then again, I’m sure that’s true for any working parent.
As I mentioned, I’ve also been trying to get things made to re-open my Etsy store under a different name. I’ve had a really hard time coming up with a good name. I’m really excited about getting things going, even though I’m still kicking myself for not starting sooner!
Last, but not least, there seems to be something going around with the kids and I’m REALLY hoping I’m not getting it. To be honest, I really don’t know whether it’s a cold or allergies. I’m leaning toward and hoping more for the latter. My eyes are starting to get itchy as I write this, so I’m really hoping for allergies…Although I’m not sure why. They’re just as bad as having a cold and last longer in my experience! Lol I just need a REAL vacation…
