FREE! (for a few hours)
Wondering Where I was?
Probably not, but if you were, I am here to tell you that childminding is hard work and you don't have time for much else when you're doing it, especially if the children are young. I agreed (what am I saying? I was told) to look after two of my grandchildren for a long weekend while my daughter and her husband went to France to see a rugby match (yes, they were in France this weekend).
Didn't I remember?
Did I not remember what hard work children are? Well, no, I didn't. For one reason, I had 4 years between each of mine, not 2 and secondly, you forget over time.
We got up between 7 and 7.30am, whether or not we were still sleeping when the children awoke. By the time I had changed nappies, got them dressed, fed them breakfast, opened the beds and curtains, got myself washed and dressed and done the dishes, it was already gone 9 am and all I can say, is thank goodness they didn't have to go to school because they would have been late. Unfortunately it rained very hard the entire weekend and with recent colds, I couldn't take them out, so they certainly were not at the beach!
Why a few hours? Because i look after them Monday, Tuesdays and Fridays too and it's not that long til 9am tomorrow. All I can say, is thank goodness for granddads that come up and give you a bit of help!
