Kiddin Around

Most of my weekend recaps focus on my entire weekend. But I’m going to switch it up (just this once) and dork out a little bit—and focus on my Saturday night—because it was So. Much. Fun.

I baby-sat 2 of my favorite kids “J” and “O”…

The Weather Was Perfect,
So We Played Outdoors For Hours (I have the bug bites to prove it)

We blew bubbles.
"J" just saw The Avengers, and pretended the bubbles were lasers...and that he was Captain America, saving the world from the bubble lasers.

I outlined "J" and "O" and they colored in their shapes.
"J" a soccer goalie, and "O" a runner

"J"s friend "E" came over, so I traced her as well.
I was amazed by her artistic talent at 7 years old!!!

We made edible artwork with Twizzlers Pull and Peel.
"J" made a picture of his favorite tie, "E" made a bowl, and "O" made a mermaid and a horse. 

The rest of my weekend involved working retail, margaritas, watching Star Trek & Super 8, catching up with some old friends, and sleeping...lots of sleeping.

Make It A Great Week & Thanks For Reading


  1. What a fun day! When I babysit, the kids can play with chalk and bubbles for hours--it's so fun!

  2. Ohh how fun! I love that you plan such fun things to do with the kids you babysit - my version of babysitting is always just "lets go to the park" ha. I'm totally stealing that chalk idea for next time I do babysit though.

  3. Love playing with kiddos. Also, I told my husband that every time you come to Cali you get a slice of cake from Suzie's so we DEFINITELY did that this afternoon. Great advice! :)

  4. So cute! Little kids are always kind of amazing. It's fun to see their talents. You sound like a good babysitter!
