Kids - especially younger kids - are bustling bees of activity! I love babysitting because it reminds me of the simple transition from one activity to the next.

It’s great remembering how to focus on one thing - say, building a fire truck out of blocks - before moving on to the next. As the babysitter, transitioning the day from playtime to lunchtime to clean-up time, I feel like babysitting resets my clock! I again remember how much you can get done in a day if you focus on your schedule - and how multi-tasking too much can sometimes put you a step back.
