Confessions of a 13 year old babysitter
My mother was an amazing woman. She has been dead now 13 years not a day passes that I don't miss her. The things that you would do for your mother is endless. Even babysit her best friends kids.....
At 13 life is full of adventure and lots of mischief! Mum made me babysit these 3 kids. I was still a little kid myself and these 3 kids lived in an area of home town we called snobs hill. I don't have to explain why they called it this....
The kids 2 boys and a girl were ok! If I had homework they would play up and if I didn't they would sleep, go figure that one out. But anyway it gave me some extra money and was my first job. I love children but I would never leave them with a 13 year old ever!! God I slept there and you think if anything had gone wrong what would I do except panic, I was a young girl myself scared of the dark and anything that goes bump in the night.
The mother of these kids was my mothers best friend. They had a falling out later in life, which was really no surprise. She was one of those woman who flashed off a big diamond rings, the latest mercedes benz. Fur coats and every designer dress and hundreds of shoes all the top brands. I think this is where my shoe addiction may have started. The greek family ran a fruit business back 34 years ago. There were only 2 fruit business's in town, I did not realise that you can make so much money with a fruit business. Her and her husband loved to flash around big time, show off all there money.
One morning the kids father was supposed to drop me home to the door but the police were in our street, he would not come down the street to drop me home. The police were at my neighbours house. The son had taken a drug overdose which was really sad. Mum was furious he made me walk from the corner. He was supposed to deliver me to the door.
Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??"The answer:
Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples".
Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…
Jerry Seinfeld says Julia Louis-Dreyfus is in great spirits following the actress' final round of chemotherapy treatment.
While attending an event in for Bob Roth's new book, Strength in Stillness: The Power of Transcendental Meditation, at Joe's Pub at The Public in New York City on Tuesday night, the Seinfeld alum told ET that his former co-star is on the mend.
"I talk to her all the time," the 63-year-old comedian revealed. "She's doing great."
Louis-Dreyfus revealed her breast cancer diagnosis last fall, and she finished up her last round of chemotherapy this past month. Her sons, Henry and Charlie, even made her a hilarious video of themselves lip-syncing and dancing to Michael Jackson's "Beat It" to celebrate the big day.
The 57-year-old actress' latest Instagram post, shared on Jan. 29, paid homage to Seinfeld. Louis-Dreyfus took a photo of the back of a picture frame she found at her late father's house, the back of wh…

period begins. Usually these signs are accompanied by the appearance of pubic hair and hair under the arms.
Once ovulation and menstruation begin, the maturing of the breasts begins with the formation of secretory glands at the end of the milk ducts. The breasts and duct system continue to grow and mature with the development of many glands and lobules. The rate at which breasts grow varies significantly and is different for each young woman. Breast development occurs in five stages: Stage One: In preadolescence, the breasts are flat and only the tip of the nipple is raised.Stage Two: Buds appear, breast and nipple are raised, fat tissue begins to form and the areola (dark area of skin that surrounds the nipple) enlarge…
