Sophie has been after me for months to help her find a babysitting job. Since she turned 12 in February it seems to be on her mind, especially as she always seems to be in search of spending money on the weekend.
One of my co-workers has two young daughters who Sophie has gotten to know a bit better through her dance school. Since today is the start of spring break it was the perfect opportunity for Sophie to watch the girls in the park for an hour or two while her mom ran some errands. Sophie had a great time with the girls, gained some experience and earned a little spending money.
I must say, this feels like a real milestone for Sophie and nice to have that under her belt.
