she isn't really new. she has watched the older kids before for us, back in 2005. but now, we find we really need someone to help take a load off for us now and then. this is christin, who just happened to attend my alma mater, maplewood-richmond heights high. her mom was in the same class as my next oldest brother.
...and THIS is why we hired her!
