It was hard!

This past week I watched Kaya. She is Jonee and Jose's daughter and a pure joy to have. She listens so well, very polite, and loves to play.

*For those that do not know the relationship between Jonee and I. When Derek and I started dating and I lived with Marlene's parents he came over for a family party and said, "what the heck, Jonee!" Marlene's family is really good friends with Jonee's family and Derek use to be friends with Derek in high school and I went to high school with Jonee. CRAZY! This meeting was almost 12 years ago and we get to see Jonee at parties and other family events, but it was not until this past year that I have been able to know her better. Our daughters do ballet together and get along so well. Jonee and I do too. It also helps that Derek likes her:)*

Anyways, The kids had fun with Kaya, but watching four kids is a lot.

Thinking I was "wonder mom" i agreed to watch two more little ones! "Bring it on" So I watched McKenna and Caden for Jen. As all of the children arrived I started to feel overwhelmed, but it could not have gone better! I actually vacuumed, made lunch, cleaned that up, made a few beds and sat down for a minute. I know that sounds strange, but I think the more you have the more they entertain each other.

Here are a few pics of my adventure! Derek got all stressed just thinking about it!

My g-ma once said, after three you start to actually get stuff done, because it becomes an even ratio and they entertain one another, you might have just proven her point.

Good job supper mom! I agree though, when there are more they do keep playing. Mine are all the same age so it went from infant care to my own preschool. =)

You ladies are funny and very correct. When Sara and her sisters were very young I babysat 2 or 3 kids all under the age of 6 plus having my own 3. I always got more done when they were all together. It looks like everyone had a wonderful time. Sara, I think LP is looking more like Saige all the time.
