We met Mr. P when he was only a few months old. His parents were some of the first people we met when we started going to Olympic-View and we have been friends ever since. We've shared many dinners and celebrated birthday's together these past 2 years and are looking forward to many more.
When P was about a year old, Teagan was obsessed with him. She was going to marry him when he got older, planned on taking him to San Diego with her (whenever that was!). P's parents work from home, so I've watched him a few times when they needed me. I've always thought it was fun having him around and now that he is 2, he interacts and plays great with the girls.
A couple of weeks ago, Shannon, his mom, asked if I was interested in watching him one morning a week and more when her other babysitter wasn't available. YES! YES! YES! He fits right in with my kids, adds a great "boy" vibe to our all girl house and Zoe and Teagan play better when he's here. The funny thing is, after she asked me about watching him, I got a notice from Unemployment that my benefits were up at the end of the next week - the same week I would start watching him! Talk about great timing - Thank you GOD! I watched him every day last week and it was great. The girls ask regularly what day Mr. P is coming over and Zoe keeps telling me she is practicing for when she is old enough to babysit.
I am looking forward to Mr. P Mondays (and any other day that he may be here) and watching him grow up! He is too cute!
