Luckily babysitting jobs have been picking up (Yay! Gas $$$$) I will be starting some early evening babysitting for a new family. This Mom has a 2-year-old daughter and just birthed a 4-week-old baby boy via C-Section. At this point she can’t lift anything heavier than the baby. This is tough since she was picking up her 2 year old up until she was in labor. To help this stay at home Mom, she has the assistance of her sister who helps out everyday from 9:00am- 5:00 ish. She also has a Doula who helps at night with the baby from 9:00pm- 6:00am. She is currently looks for some much needed help from 5:00pm-9:00pm to assist with getting dinner ready for her daughter, bathing her and putting her to bed. Oh I forgot to mention she lives in a beautiful penthouse apartment in center city and her daughter uses old Louis Vuitton purses as part of her dress-up bin. Can you believe it?!? Just Wild. I am desperate for mullah and this woman is really nice but HOLY MOLY. My Mom was able to take care of all 4 of us girls without hiring help EVER. Center City Mom’s: It is possible to care for your children without the assistance of Nannys/Doulas/Babysitters. In VT I would never encounter people like this. So bizarre.
On top of interviewing I have started a new job of “Non-Medical Companion Care”. Basically I get paid to hang out with Senior Citizens and people who are ill and bed bound in their homes. I am currently attempting my first overnight shift of 9pm-9am. I hope I can stay awake. To prepare for this evening of fun I stayed up last night until 6:30 am. To keep myself busy I decided to do some cooking for the week. From 10 pm-5: 30am I was a cooking fiend. I was able to make
-Pickled Spicy Cauliflower
-Bake a loaf of bread
-Wash & Fold 2 loads of laundry
- Watch 3 episodes of Golden Girls
Needless to say I was busy. I will be posting about all of these goodies during the week. Spreading out all the delicious excitement instead of writing a mammoth post.
