I started babysitting for Cutie A and Cutie B when I was a junior in high school.
This is them back then!
Cutie B and Cutie A
I think it was love at first sight and I continue to babysit for them in summers and when I'm home. They also come visit me here at UVA and in the fall, I even had Cutie A spend the night with me after a football game.
This was them the weekend before move-in day my 1st Year at UVA
The next summer I was lucky enough to go with them to the beach!
We have so much fun together. Cutie A is a little version of me; our hobbies include splash contests off the diving board, making friendship bracelets, and playing some intense games of Crazy 8's. Cutie B is a goofball. He loves to make people laugh and has some good jokes up his sleeve.
This is currently my desktop background.
Did I mention they like to be silly?
It's funny because Cutie A and Cutie B's mom says she trusts me with them moreso than she does her own mother! Additionally, this summer, their dad was telling me how someone asked who Allie was in conversation. Rather than saying, "Oh, she's our babysitter," his response was, "I don't know. She's like my older daughter or niece or something." I don't consider watching them a job. They're like family and we have such a good time together.
Maymont is one of our favorite places to go.
Our picnic spot in the Japanese Gardens
Our last day together last summer!
I wanted you guys to meet them, because, I'll be watching them full time this summer and because they're a huge part of my life. It's funny, because, my mom has always said that you don't really know what love is, until you have a child. I love Cutie A and Cutie B so much, that I can't imagine what it will be like to have my own kids someday.
This summer I'm sure that many of my posts will be about our adventures.
Tomorrow, I'm planning to pick them up from school and take them to see the movie Hop. I've been feeling a bit under the weather, so I am wishing and hoping that all is better by tomorrow and I won't have to cancel our get together.
