Do you remember any of the baby sitters you had as a kid? Can you describe them...who they were? Did you like them? Did you give them a 'bad time'...lol?
We didn't have sitters often but for some reason I didn't like baby sitters before they got there...except for one. She was a high school gal who had a physical handicap. I'm not sure what it was but her left side didn't work well, she had an awful time walking but held her head high and kept on moving. Her arm on that side was non functioning almost as if she had a stroke or some sort of palsy. But I didn't 'see' that part of her because her heart was fully functional. She would play with me and actually listen to me. Her smile was as bright as the sun. Other sitters would just sit there, order you around and then send you to bed. They were too busy watching TV or reading for do anything with me. Of course my brother gave them fits but that's another story. I'm trying so hard to remember the one gal's name...I can see her as if she were standing beside me but the name is spinning around this foggy brain and I can't quite make it out. Doesn't matter...she was awesome.
you? Did you have great sitters? Or were they the sitter from Mars?

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
