Cozy Blanket news

My new job is going to be watching these cuties 3 days a week. We will spend lots of time in the Green Bug transporting to and from pre-school. The girls will go on alternating days.
Now, aren't they cute. They are 3 and 4 but in a couple of months they will be 4 and 5. The youngest is adopted from China and what a sweetie. She told me she loved me twice this morning. Her name is
Anabelle just like my MIL. Curly Girl is going to be the handful.
I have been registered with Sitter City and Care.com. I had several leads but most were for the Columbus area. I called my neighbor and asked to borrow a potato for soup for my BFF. She didn't have any but she told another neighbor that I was looking for someone to watch. The same day I saw that neighbor at the stop sign in our neighborhood. She said someone she knew needed someone.
And this is how I met Curly Girl and
I am supposed to also watch a 13 year old boy that has
Autism.......actually something like it but not exactly. I had him in SACC last year and my son has been his special ed teacher. He moved up to the middle school and was too old now for SACC. My son and I both adore him and this is more like a favor to his family. His mom said he just needed a safe place to go after school.

New babies.......my neighbor had her baby girl on Sept. 1. I was on call but their Grammy got there before I was needed.
Doodle's Mom had her new baby this morning. I did get called at 5 a.m. to go to their house (45 minutes away) and get Doodle and Baby B. off to school and sitters house. I made french toast for them and got them off just in time to return home for my first day with the girls. Wait til you see the new baby's room. OMGosh.......his daddy did an amazing job again.
A week ago it wasn't even painted.....wait til you see it.

Yesterday was Piper's second birthday. Happy Birthday Sweet Boy. We are guessing that it is his birth day but not sure since he came from the pound. What a lucky find for us.
No party this year but he got this sweet flat bunny. No stuffing. Hopefully it will last a couple of days. He was so proud. I had to take about 20 pictures to get one good one......that is if red eyes count for good.

My MIL is home but still very grouchy. She fell in the night Sunday. I think she is okay.

Poor Izzy's tummy is getting bigger. Her antibiotics are almost gone. We are to return to the vet when she finishes them. Sometimes her breathing is better......but she is not improving. We added SamE to her meds four days ago......no change yet. Today I got thistle milk supplements. Not sure how much to give her, I had to do some calculating. So hoping I don't give her too much. I have read online that this stuff is amazing and works quickly. I want her to try it for a couple of days before we return to the vet.
Anyone out there in blog world have anything similar to their pets. She is still eating, drinking and going to the potty. She seems a little different today. Grumpy and that is new.

Okay, I think that I have covered everything that has happened here in the last couple of days. If not I will remember after some rest.

I bet you'll have fun days with those cutie pie girls. You'll need the other 2 days to rest up. I'm exhausted after just one day of keeping my granddaughter.

A lot goes on in a small amount of time at your place!

OMGOsh- You have been busy! So Doodle is going to have to "put up with" a new baby?!? THAT should be interesting!

Love that you got a job with 2 little girls and how wonderful that you will be there for that young man that needs you.

I just have one question for you though...what have you been doing with all your spare time? (ducking and running away now) Diana

Heather said...

Debby, you are one busy lady! Hope you're having fun at the same time! You make such a difference in so many little ones lives.

Julie Harward said...

Good luck with the little angels, they are blest to have you! :D

Hi Debby, It is wonderful to hear from you! Looks you will have your hands full for this school year with these two cuties.
I read your post about the CLFair and the Mt. Vernon Fair. Oh my goodness, I wish the puppies were gone by then, but it's not to be. Be sure and take lots of photos!
Puppy Alert - I just place chairs in my hallway that the big dogs can't get through but that Charlie can walk under. For some reason big dogs and little dogs get along. Not so little and little? It's poor Mr. Kitty that we are so worried about as the German Shephard nearly did him in last time. I'll let you know how it goes!
Take care, Elizabeth

Sounds like KidCity what with those two cute little girls and the babies!

BTW, the Prof is my brother in law :) And so far the news is good. Fingers crossed!

Nan said...

Has Izzy been checked for Cushings Disease by chance?
You are always surrounded by kids as you are like a magnet to them me thinks.

Susie Q said...

i will keep your sweet fir baby in my prayers..I so understand the worry.
You have had a busy time of late haven't you! Love those two sweet faces! Bless you for being there for them and for the young man...my nephew has autism and I so understand the ned for them having somewhere warm and safe to go.
I am betting that Doodle will love the new baby and be such a help!

These kids will keep you young! ....If they don't kill ya first. LOL
Wish I could have seen you tomorrow for CL, but life is what it is.... The pain med seems to take the edge off- I need to continue stretching my neck and using the cervical traction machine. We'll get together soon, ok? Loved talking to you- I'll call the home # next time! ♥ Sue
