Two days a week, my neighbour’s daughter comes over and helps with the kids. I usually send them to the park and then she hangs out for lunch or play doh or whatever! She’s fantastic.
She has been babysitting the kids since Hazel was just a baby. She’s more like a big sister and we know she loves them so much.
What’s great is I get a bit of time to get stuff done. But on Tuesday, I chose to just hold Eleanor.
She’s been a little extra needy, so I figured it was good to just hold and snuggle her for a bit, without distraction. Maybe it will be good, maybe not! But she wants to be held and I’m tired, so sitting we do!
