Super Nanny

There is a new babysitter in town.

She is fun, great with kids of all ages, always available, and FREE.

And the lady is a tramp.

(Ba dung ching!)

{I'm sorry. There was no excuse for that.}

Y'all, this is the greatest thing E-V-E-R.

If you have an infant...start saving up for one of these beauties. No matter the cost, it will be worth it.

Of course, we got ours for free. Even bettah.

In the morning, I restrain the kids until 7:30, at which time their giggles start to infect the whole neighborhood.

{At least that is what I picture. The high school kids next door might be plotting our demise.}

Kids climb the backyard fence for a quick jump before school.

And after school.

Then they change into their swimsuits, turn on the hose, and get jiggy wit' it.

Hours, people.

I'm serious. Hours.

And truly, I am mesmerized for hours. The joy of jumping, feeling taller than a building, collapsing into a pile of unrestrained laughter. Magic.

It's hard not to watch.

And then after hours of bouncing non-stop, they demand food.

So I put my personal stash of cookie dough away and give them other stuff.

And I think those faces mean they're real grateful.

Looks like a blast. I've been toying with getting one of those huge water slides but am nervous about having all sorts of uninvited kids. How do you deal with that or are these kids invited?

We have the very same nanny, and I'm not sure what I'd do without her! :) Ours was also free, which makes it even better! Welcome to the world of having all the neighbors in your yard!!
