Babysitter Woes

As much as I love being a mom sometimes it would be nice not to be tied down. Now before anyone slam me I love my son to death but sometimes would just like my old unencumbered life back. I know - it is coming. He's nine. Before I know it he won't "need" me anymore. I really do love spending my time with him...

It's just my dad won tickets to the ball game on Saturday. Party suite tickets I might add! I would love love love to go (he invited hubby and I to go with Mom and him). However, I don't have anyone to watch the boy. My brother is going out of town. Hubby called a girl who used to be his secretary who has stayed with him a few times - she's out of town also. Hubby's family lives out of state so they are out. All my friends have kids the same age so no teenagers there. I have one last shot - my aunt. She does daycare (not on Saturdays though) and has kept him a couple other times. Plus I have a cousin just a couple years older than him that he just idolizes. I'll call her in the morning. Until then I'm just crossing my fingers she can and will do it.

  1. Give me a call...I'll watch him. :)

    Good luck finding someone. That's always hard. I hope you can make it! Sounds like a good time.
