When did a baby grow up?

Yesterday was a P.D. day for my kids. My oldest daughter went to the community center and took the babysitter's course! It just seems like yesterday I was a young girl at that same community center taking the babysitting course.

Now, of course back then it was free. Today, it is $45.00.

Emily took my old cabbage patch doll as her 'baby'. I took that same doll when I took the course years before her.

What a bittersweet moment when your first baby is now old enough to take care of other children. By the way, she loved the course and came home pumped up to be a certified babysitter.

How did this happen? Where did the last twelve years go?

It's quite frightening isn't it! Well done Emily - you're a great girl and you're going to love baby sitting!

I wish you lived near me. I could use a good babysitter.

It does seem like they grow up way to fast. I know that my grands are sure growing to fast. I keep telling them to slow down, but they just laugh at me.
Have a great day.

Time does seem to get away from us. I think I might try to get my step-daughter into a babysitting course this summer!

I don't know my friend, I don't know. I have one that's going to be 15 in July - that's old enough to drive. My youngest just started Kindergarten-Yikes!

Wow, good for her! They grow up way too quickly. My oldest just turned 13 and I wonder where the time went too.
