Gainfully Employed

It is indeed a great day for me as a mother. The last of my children is gainfully employed. Baby O has went to work babysitting for the tax lady in town during tax season. She watches her children after school several evenings a week and on the weekends. Located only a few miles from our house so that we are close enough should a problem arise and her employer is thrilled. Says this is the first babysitter she has ever had that could cook. She is learning first hand the responsibility of not only taking care of children but seeing  the difficulties of the working single Mom that employs her. I laughed because she worked all weekend and then came home and slept for 14 hours. Guess she was tired. So another milestone in my 16 year old daughter's life is marked. Now she can buy her own books and music. Amen.

  4. Oh to be 16 again! I don't know, think I will stay where I am at.

    I found your blog through Pinterest. (I think it was your walnut cracking that some one had pinned) Are you on Pinterest? (it's habit forming)

    I'm in Jefferson city Mo, where are you?


  5. Congratulations on this wonderful milestone! Such a bittersweet moment for a momma, though. I have one left home (he's 14) who currently enjoys volunteering with community projects. Not sure how I will feel when he finds fulfillment outside the family.
    Enjoy your quiet time!!

  6. Baby O sure is lucky to have such good parents. You have guided her with love and tempered her with strenth. congratulations, Baby O!
