I am friends with a family of five children. I have known the couple since the oldest was 6 months old. As the family grew I’ve had the privilege of babysitting and helping them in other ways with the children. Sometimes taking different ones to places they needed to be, or picking them up and taking them home when the parents were busy with the other children, maybe driving the others to and from different events.

Over the last few months I have been able to help in this way with one or the other of two who have been in rehearsals for a play, going to band practice, or dance classes. I love all five of these children. They are awesome. And I enjoy being able to have the drive time with one or the other as we talk one on one.

Well, the past couple weeks they haven’t needed the help with that nor sitting with the kids while Mom and Dad go on their weekly date night. Gosh, the weeks are not the same without at least one appointment with them 
