Up For Whatever Hours

Friday, October 07, 2011

I kept the kids yesterday, usually my daughter's day off, for my daughter to interview for a full time job she wants. It would be 8am to 5pm, Monday - Friday, so my child care duties would be quite different hours. And at least for a while she probably will want to keep her massage therapist license and work a weekend day and/or an evening, too. I feel pretty confident that whatever hours I end up providing care that I will find a way to get my exercise in and to eat healthy.

    Phew, that will be a lot of "grandma-ing"--you will definitely need your healthy lifestyle to keep it up. Know you can do it!!

    Nice that you are able to help out and that you really enjoy it! I wish my Grandmother had been as active as you! Back in the old days-who ever thought of working out! I remember Jack Lalanne was like a wonderment of sorts!Like watching the only person on TV who did that! Here you are running races! emoticon

    I admire you so much for taking on full child care duty.....I write this as I have just finished feeding our 3 & 5 year old dinner and will be putting them to bed soon. We have been doing some major babysitting so that the kids can get away for a bit. but I want to say that it is a lot of work with very active children. I will be so happy to be going home on Sunday and getting back into my routine.
    good for you to commit to taking care of yourself and working in eating right and exercise.

    You are an angel of mercy consenting to looking after children full time when you should be free to enjoy your retirement years. That you plan to keep up your healthy lifestyle shows what a success you are and perhaps will you pass the Spark on to these lucky children too! You are amazing!!
