We're moving...

Crawling, that is. Andra started a couple weeks ago and right now is the first time she's crawled away to go explore on her own. Naturally, she went into the cat's room (the sun room). She is happily playing with the catnip toys as Pokey watches safely out of reach on the couch.

I was moving too...ran at lunch today. I almost couldn't, when I got to the fitness center there was a gym class about to go in, but when I asked the teacher if I had any chance of getting one, she kept the class outside until I changed and ran in to claim one! I didn't even stop to pee for fear of not getting the treadmill so that kind of sucked, but beat not running at all since I actually had the motivation today. All the kids would have done is walk, and there are tons of stationary bikes for them to pretend to work out on, and only 3 treadmills. So I was happy!

We're going to see the Michael Jackson movie tonight, and then out for a quick bite to eat. This is the first time someone other than Fred or me will put Andra to bed. She will be fine and it's time, but I will worry! The babysitter is a former student, now a senior and she's taking AP child development (who knew there was such an AP course) so she's well qualified!

(update...of course they had a fabulous time, as did we!)

I still haven't been able to find a babysitter and I think a lot of it is that I am not really ready. However, I would really love to see a movie or have dinner out with the hubs. I think it may be time to just do it. Now to find someone I trust..... The daycare owner offered her daughter who is 14 but I think that is just too young. Thoughts?

Love when babysitters work out. Glad you had such a fun time too.

I think I preferred it when Cairn stayed in the one place. He's been crawling for about a month and always seems to go for electrical wires.

I've only had my Mum and my Mother-in-law babysitting. When he's at daycare all week, I feel guilty about not having him. Need to get over that though, as I really miss going to the movies!
