i got to babysit on friday! two little boys-ethan (3) and aidan (18 months) who live in birmingham. i had talked to the dad earlier last week and set it up. i was a little nervous not ever having met them, and the kids not meeting me until friday, but it worked out SO well! they were the easiest kids i have ever had to put to sleep and they didn't even know me. aidan got tired a little before bedtime and wouldn't let me put him down, i really didn't mind at all :) we played outside with bubbles and chalk and set up trains in the basement. haha i know i know, im like the coolest 23 year old ever hanging out with babies on a friday night. but i dont really care, it was a blast and relieved a lot of stress that i've had building up latley. im not sure many people would say taking care of little kids would relieve their stress...but it does for me! they had an amazing home theater in their basement which was saweeet. we took turns imitating animals and guessing them on the theater's stage haha needless to say, i had a lot of fun and get to watch them again next friday!
lori and i roasted marshmellows on our mini grill last night on charcoal that took like 2 1/2 hours to light haha it was a blast. i spent the majority of today researching cystic fibrosis and its pathophysiology...exciting really. its taking a long time to really understand the articles im reading in order to write my research paper. i hate having to stare at a computer for so long. i got 3 out of a minimum of 12 pages wrote...so i suppose thats a start. its going to be a long 2 weeks ahead of me to get this finished. if i didn't have to work 40 hours a week on top of this, my life would be a lot less stressful! or if i was headed to hilton head with my mom and sisters in two days. sigh. off to bed!
