Saturday Snapshots -- Babysitting

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend of family member) have taken. Then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
My week got very busy.
I started teaching three new classes in the evening; Tucker's high school musical opened and I've been helping with costumes for a couple of weeks; Suddenly, I had to babysit two days this week because my sister-in-law was struck down with the flu and ended up in the hospital.
My sister-in-law usually watches her three grandkids on Thursday and Friday. So I took a shift watching the three kids both days. Exhausting but exhilarating.
Caroline is 4. She's not allowed to eat wheat, so I introduced her to chocolate-covered raisins. We decided this was a healthy snack. You can see she is delighted.
Regan is 20 months old. She was supposed to be napping but had a dirty diaper and unfortunately decided to explore. She needed a bath before I could put her down for a nap again.
\
Grant is 14 months old. He stacked these cans up by himself very meticulously. When I looked up childhood milestones, I saw that babies should be able to stack 2 to 3 blocks at the age of 18 months. He has six cans stacked up here. I guess he'll be an engineer or an architect.
Hope you all had a good week.

I can imagine that you would be exhausted looking after 3 kids. I was tired after looking after my niece for a few hours and I had my wife to help. It's fun tired but still exhausting. Hope you have a great week.

Adorable children! I babysit my granddaughter one day a week (she's almost three), and I'm worn out by the time she leaves. But I wouldn't give up my time with her for anything in the world. Thanks for sharing your week.

Wow, what busy couple of days you had. One little one exhausts me, I cannot imagine 3 4 and under. Yikes. My youngest grandchild turns 21 this year, so it has been awhile since little ones graced this home.

What luck to have an auntie that loves babysitting and is so good with little people. Too cute. Thanks for the pictures.

Thanks everyone for commenting. In the next couple of days, I'm going to have some time to relax. I'm looking forward to it.

Cute kids, they do look a handful. I love the toddler stacking stage. My son loved the weekly groceries and the tins of cat food we were buying at that stage had the perfect lip for stacking- hours of fun every week.
