Ellen & Hanna “It’s nice that Hanna does the things with Nora and Felicia that I can’t find the time for.”
Hanna occasionally babysits Ellen’s two girls. Most of the times, she needs to start drawing horses and unicorns right away.
The nice thing about Hanna is that she’s so calm. She gets along with both girls, she’s very easy going. It’s not that they are very excited when they know Hanna’s coming, but if she’s here then they’re fine with it. It’s nice to have a babysitter that comes over more often. Hanna knows where everything is and hardly needs to ask anything anymore. She always checks the bedtimes with us and is confident enough to find her own way around the house, so when we’re gone, she doesn’t call us for small things. When she’s here, we know that we don’t have anything to worry about.
Nora and Felicia always ask Hanna if she can draw with them, because she can draw really well. They always ask for horses and unicorns. Hanna’s being put to work almost every time she comes over. I wish I could draw with the girls, but at this moment it’s so busy that I hardly have the time to sit and relax. That’s why it’s great that Hanna can do this with them. And at the same time, Hanna and the girls have something special they can share together.
Most of the times, I babysit in the evening. Before bedtime, we play a little game or they want me to draw. We usually sit at the table and all three of us are drawing. Mostly, they want me to draw horses or unicorns; I like those as well so I don’t mind at all. And most of the times, when I give the drawings to them, I get theirs in return.
