Julia is on a mission to earn some money! She has her eye on a few frivolous things that don't fall under my definition of necessary to survive in life category. After tithing, buying her pet supplies ( yes we do make her do that) and blowing some funds on vacation she has discovered she needs to increase the cash flow. So she approached me about babysitting. Now, I feel it is her God given right and duty to help out with her siblings, but since she is not old enough to go and babysit someone else's child I decided to take her up on her offer of helping out with Benedict. She asked for 5 bucks an hour and I countered with 2, but being like her dad and negotiating we settled on 3$! I know I am getting off dirt cheap but let's not tell her that! Besides it isn't like I am leaving her alone, not yet anyways! Today she earned her first wage and I have to say I am liking this gig! I was able to do three loads of laundry without interruption and I got dinner prepped and a little porch time in. ( that's when I make an iced coffee and grab the iPad and do my "stuff")
Now, I had to sneak a few photos in but she felt like I was hovering so I left them alone...from a distance!


  1. What a great idea! Anna and Clare are ALWAYS trying to "earn" money from me. Glad you got a break:)

  2. I would pay her to come babysit Steven! Wish we lived closer. I would give anything for a Julia! Great idea!
