Turns out being at a dinner party with my parents means they can't watch the kids.
We hired a babysitter last night. It was the first time Will has stayed with someone who wasn't family. (First time we left Kalena with someone who wasn't family she was 6 weeks old. Will is 11 1/2 months. Crazy.) Both kids did well, or so our sitter told us. Maybe it was because we left her with a couple of tired kiddos. See?
P.S. If you don't have family to babysit for you, who do you get? And how much do you pay them? Just curious.
