Ben and I offer to babysit for families in our ward pretty often, so parents can have a free night out and we can get a feel for that life.
There is a family in our ward we just love, and they happen to be out of town this week and asked us to stay overnight with their three kids; Hayley, 13, Caron, 11, and David, 7. They are such great, fun, easy kids and we love being invited over!
But seriously... is this what it's really like to be a mom?!?!
