This Beautiful Inheritance: Three Little Munchkins

Three Little Munchkins

I've been wanting/needing to find some extra work for a while now. Something part-time, close to home, flexible. I've thought about babysitting but was always nervous that someone else's kid(s) plus my own would be... tough. After all, I've only ever had 1 kid! I don't know anything different.

But last week an opportunity presented itself for me to babysit two kiddos two days a week, or at least to try it out. After giving it some thought, I decided to give it a go.

Bright and early Thursday morning Kourtney brought over Brylee and Luke. Brylee is exactly the same age as Eden (18 months), and Luke is 4 months. So, yes, I had my hands full!

But all in all, it went smoother than I expected. Brylee and Luke are great kids!

Eden had so much fun with Brylee. Even though she called her "Lella" the whole two days (that's babytalk for Ella, our cousin).

We played outside a lot! These two looove their wagon rides. And sticks. And dirt. And leaves. And rocks.


And most definitely, they love their popelles! (that's babytalk for popcicles)


And Luke found something he loved too -- The Swing.


My biggest achievement from my first two days on the job? Getting ALL THREE BABIES to sleep AT THE SAME TIME.

Two days in a row, people! For this, I declared myself #SuperBabysitter on the Twitters.

Like I said, altogether, everything went really well. Although I was exhausted at the end of each day (I think pulling 50 lbs. in a wagon with a 17 pounder strapped to my stomach had something to do with that...), I still really enjoyed those wittle babies! And I think I just may keep them again :-).


  1. Wow Kelcie, you are a SuperBabysitter to get 3 little ones down for a nap at the same time!

  2. Looks like fun. Exhausting but fun. I have always been afraid to look after other peoples children also.

  3. I could not keep three at once, but I'm proud of you for giving it a go!
