  1. I thought that if you met Santa, you didn't get any presents.

  3. Yeah, my firstjob was babysitting too, but I went for first "professional" job. WShen I babysat, I got 25 cents and hour and I remember when they raised it to 50 cents.

  4. Little House on the Prairie fan, huh? I bet not many know who Karen Grassle is (she played Ma). She was always eclipsed by Michael Landon and the girls.

  5. Hmmm, when you put it that way, then I have met someone famous. Santa scared the heck out of me.

  6. Can you believe I never babysat? Just wasn't a thing--I don't think we ever lived anywhere long enough to get to know people well enough to trust them with your children, lol.
