Babysitting was my first gig. I earned fifty cents an hour to watch the kids down the block while their parents went to a movie or out to a neighborhood fondue party (those existed). I usually watched preschool and young elementary age kids. There were no diapers to change or bottles to warm. I liked the job if there was ice cream in the freezer and if the kids behaved to play board games.
My theme for the 2022 AtoZ Blog Challenge is titled Grand Prompts To Ask Your Grands. Each day in April I will present a conversation starter/journal prompt to ask your parents, grandparents, aunts, older neighbors, co-workers, yourself…you get the idea. The questions are meant to forge connections between and within generations and inspire storytelling and journaling.
