Deuce Cities Henhouse

I’m out numbered, by a lot!


I might be crazy, but I took on watching my good friend’s baby girl, Penny, on Mondays. Yesterday was our first day together, and I’m happy to report we all survived. You might remember that I helped Penny’s mom and dad (Beak & Cam) get the nursery together prior to Penny’s arrival.

My mom might not have known what she was getting into but she volunteered to help get me through my first few Mondays until me and the crew got into the swing of things. We’re figuring it out as we go but that’s the only way to do it. I have always felt that you just have to dive right in when it comes to kids, sink or swim, and most of the time we end up swimmin’.

My Mom rules!

Penny has been welcomed with open arms by the other kids, although Gus is not so sure and has turned into quite the little bottle thief. Finn and Elsa on the other hand have been a great help and like tending to Penny’s needs. I’m looking forward to all these crazy kids growing up together and I think it’s important that they do!

    You are brave! I’ve been watching a friend’s kids Wednesday mornings and after four hours of 4 under 4 I am exhausted but happy. You are so right about just jumping in. The thought of being in charge of so many kids and the logistics of it is so much scarier than actually doing it. Plus the memories they’re making together are priceless.

      I’m glad to hear others operate the same way. You just gotta dive right in.

      Awh, this makes me a little teary. We all gotta look out for each other, I’m just doing my part. :)
