When I was a Nanny

Well I am not sure if you would call it a nanny, but I watched kids all the time in my early jr-high highschool years.

It was a family of four the oldest at the time was 10 and the youngest an infant. The two in the middle were 4 and 5, 2 girls and 2 boys.....

The youngest baby girl I watched her from the day she came home until I moved away and she was about 4 at the time. I loved her too pieces and she loved me just as much. If I was around she would not go to anyone else but me.

I remember her first birthday party she would not leave me at all I had to sit her on my lap and do her smash cake, no one could hold her. She was the cutest thing ever, I loved her and her brothers and sister so much.

I went to on vacations with them, Disney, Wisconsin, the city... I had such fun there were so many times where I wanted to pull my hair out...

One year when dad had to work and mom wanted to go shopping the day after thanksgiviing. I watched no only the 4 I usually had but some other family members kids. It was a zooo I had about 8 kids all under one roof in the winter with no where to go, I had started at 6am.. and by 7pm when they still were not home I locked me and the 2 babies in the bathroom I could not take it any more LOL I put the babies in the tub to play, I needed a break.

I have so many memories with them, I would take the girls and we would have sleepovers at my house. I remember one sleep over after I had my daughter but she was only 3 mths after we put her to bed, we were sliding down the stairs on tupperware lids we had a blast. Or I would let the girls stay up late we would do are hair and nails..

I don't really see them anymore as they are all grown up now. Old enough to watch my lil ones, I ran into the mom and the 2 youngest girls one is 14 and the baby is 10. I cried I am not gonna lie I can't believe that time goes by so fast and that they are all grown up. One on her way to highschool, very pretty popular with all the boys.. I don't want my kids to grow up I wish they would stay little forever....
