I love Autumn

Yes, I love that season, perhaps even more than spring… But that’s not what I’m talking about.

I have an 11y.o. neighbor named Autumn, and I LOVE her! Everyone with three little kids needs an Autumn in their life. She was baptised into our church about a month ago, which is how I met her, and she comes over all the time to play. Well, to play with my kids anyway. She cleans up after them, thinks of creative games to do with them, and *doesn’t like movies*! (in fact, she’s currently playing cherades w/ Cinderella.)

(Hanging from the tree was Autumn’s idea @ that photo shoot with “Zannie”)

I take her with me shopping & she helps keep track of the kids. I ‘specially love it when I have a quick errand to run, and can leave the kids in the car with her. The post office is a much much more pleasant place to go when you don’t have to be constantly saying, “No, you can’t have that. Put it back. Nonono! Don’t bend it! ACK! Get off of there!…” etc.

After three weeks with her being “my” kid that sleeps somewhere else, I really don’t know what I’d do w/o her.

    Wow, she sounds amazing! Do you pay her at all, or does she just come over to play with the little ones because she likes it? She sounds too good to be true! You should post a picture of her!

    I would LOVE to post a picture, if only I had one! NARRRRRRRRRRRRR to my lack of a camera. John just doesn’t understand how desperate a situation this is. Truly.

    And, no, I don’t pay her. Autumn’s mom is big on her doing things like this for service. That part really does make this too good to be true.
