I probably will when the baby is older. He's not here yet but I think when she's a little older I'd let her babysit.

I only let Lily keep an eye on him in the house but when they are both older, I will definitely let her babysit.

My husband works nights. Gia (almost 11) with watch Moises (1 year) while my husband is sleeping & I need to run out for something. If there is an emergency, Daddy is right upstairs to wake up. We have an 18 year old that we do not allow to watch the baby. When we both will be out of the house, we hire a sitter.

Thanks! I love it to. It's actually a verse from a song. Here is the whole thing:

Song for a Fifth Child

Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth!
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing and butter the bread,
Sew on a button and make up a bed.
Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
Sheís up in the nursery, blissfully rocking!

Oh, Iíve grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue
(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
(Pat- a- cake, darling and peek, peekaboo).
The shoppingís not done and thereís nothing for stew
And out in the yard and thereís a hullabaloo
But Iím playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
Look! Arenít her eyes the most wonderful hue?
(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).

Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
But children grow up, as Iíve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
Iím rocking my baby. Babies donít keep.

It's such a pretty song, it brings tears to my eyes. I get over emotional over my 8 year old. I can't believe how big she is and how time just flew by. I'm learning to let everything else take a backseat because time is just so precious.
