Since my mom went on vacation and had a little fight with a step and lost she has had to have surgery and have pins put in her arm.
She is my child care every other friday while I work at the hair school and every other saturday when I am doing clients.
Having a full arm cast has odviously made this not possible now since she can't lift Leo
(even though he is a peanut he has a little junk in the trunk....K, not really but he isn't a new born anymore!)
I have been looking for alternate child care for him and trying to decide if I should just put him in daycare on fridays.
Fortunately my sister has stepped up and said she will fill in for mom on her fridays.
Yesterday was the first go at it.
He was in one piece when I got home and she still had all her wits in order so I would say it was a success. The part that makes it a little tricky is my little ginger niece is only 3 months old so that makes double the diapers to change (we both do cloth) and double the babes to entertain.
Although at this point Chloe is pretty happy just watching Leo run around and laugh.
He will often stop to give her a kiss or hold her hand.
He is going to be a good little protector of his little cousin.
They are going to be each others first best friends. Leo is going to play with barbies and ponies at her house and she is going to play with cars and blocks at ours.
Although having a hairstylist for a mother may lead him to do a few girly things at home too!
The day went well....and a little sledding practice was had by Leo riding the baby gate down the stairs.
(it doesn't fit right so maybe we should screw it to the wall since this is his second tumble down those stairs!?)
