Charlie's New Friend

Well, I've ventured into being a "stay-at-home-mom" for this year and so far, I'm loving it!  Dave has even commented how much he is enjoying it too.  (Personally, I think he likes having home-cooked dinners every night of the week.)  Since I left my co-teacher in the middle of our looping year (I needed to make it up to her somehow) and to make a little extra money, I am watching her 2 year old daughter, Kallyn.  At first, Charlie wasn't too happy with this new "addition" to our daily routines, but now he actually tries to give her kisses and only cries half of the time when I'm helping her.  She is truly a delight and talks all day long!  I'm hoping her rather extensive vocabulary rubs off on Charlie.  Right now, his favorite words are "go away," "peeessss" (please), mommeeeee, daddeeee, shakkee (Jackie), and "yessssss."  They are napping at the same time so far, which gives me about a 2 hour break in the day to get some of my to-do lists accomplished.  We'll I'm off to sort through the mail...
