Ever since my children were born I searched for a trustworthy and reliable babysitter. I never imagined I would find it in a teenage boy who I've known since he was a young kid. But I did - and I'm so grateful I did. This young man spent the summer with my children and I couldn't have asked for a better role model.
Thanks to his mom, he was always right on time (even early!), he spent time doing things with my kids while he was with them, he was (and is) respectful, he is a great role model, he talked to them, and he encouraged them as a positive influence. Finding young men like him who even want to take time to spend with children is rare. We're lucky! It's been three months since the summer ended and they all went back to school, but my kids still talk about him and all the fun they had.
Thankfully I was able to do a portrait session for him and his sister. They are so fun! And they look awesome in their portraits.
