A girl I used to babysit is turning 12 and wants to start babysitting. Her mom says she isn't old enough and told her she could be a mother's helper instead. Well, she wanted her to get experience first so they called me and asked if she could practice being a mother's helper on my kids. Of course you can!
So I have a volunteer mother's helper today! She is outside with my 5 year old and 2 year old playing in the sandbox right now and I am getting so much done! Yay!!
