So it’s been awhile since my last post, and now that life is back to normal, here I am! The holidays were so stressful, so I’m thankful that is over and now we can move on. But the new semester has started at school and that is challenging my abilities with time management.
I have class on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s and occasionally, as Jared has said, he travels for work, so I need to get Ace to grandma and grandpa’s before 5:30 and get to class by 6! This in itself has presented a new challenge! Sometimes the grandparents are home by then and sometimes they are not, so I have enlisted my single, childless, 25-year old brother. Scary!
Ace loves his Uncle Charlie, and Uncle Charlie loves his nephew Ace, but Uncle Charlie can’t change a diaper. How the heck do you babysit when you can’t change a diaper?
It’s really quite interesting……..Helen has lived next door to my parents since we moved there in 1993, and she watches my niece for my older brother. She’s great, kind of like an extended family member, she definitely helps out when we need her! So Uncle Charlie and Ace will have a bottle and then play for a while, and when it’s time for a clean diaper……..it’s time to head next door to Helen’s house!
But a trustworthy babysitter is worth whatever it takes to make Ace happy and keep his diapers clean! I know he is being played with, and being fed, and most importantly he is being loved by his Uncle.
