Babysitting the Grandkids

Oh what fun it is to... babysit the grandkids! Especially when they're happy and/or sleeping! Hmm, but how to entertain two different age groups while they're both awake? Fortunately for me, Jude likes to help show Katie his toys...her toys...and there's always his death-defying acrobatic performances! When Jude tires I bring out some hand puppets, or take the two of them for walks in the park.
Plenty of fun for all,
Bubbie, Jude and Katie, too!
P.S. Would love to hear some of your ideas for keeping our kidlets happy and content!

  1. The age difference is fairly significant now, but it won't be when they get a little older. My grandkids enjoy playing with their cousins even if there is an age difference of 3 or 4 or 5 years.

    Reading books is always good. Babies like the sound of your voice, and they can enjoy the pictures if they are nice and big and bright. And I second your suggestion of going to the park. Jude can enjoy the playground equipment while Katie enjoys watching the kids and just being outside.

  2. Thanks for adding "reading books" to my list of things to do w/my sweeties. Good idea!
