It's a small world, after all

The VP at my office in charge of training programs invited me to a party at his house last night. One of T's hobbies is crafting beers, sodas and wine coolers, and he hosts a huge party each Fall to show off his creations. A few days ago, I stopped into T's office and asked him if his teenage daughter, who he had mentioned on a number of occaisions, ever took on babysitting jobs. I am always searching for more local sitters, since you can never have too many people to call on. T let me know that his daughter does, indeed, babysit and now that marching band season is done, she might actually have time to do so. When we arrived at the party and entered the house, Hubby caught sight of a familiar girl. "Hey, Hoss," he said, "you know her! That's one of the ladies from your KidsGym!" As we approached the girl to say hello, T saw us. "Karen! I see you've met my daughter." Yes, we've answered the question of whether T's daughter might be willing to watch my children, since she apparently already does.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
