This is day eight of my adventure in babysitting. I am glad to be back with Kate after a two week layoff. I missed her. I wonder if she missed me. Barb says she knows me. What does she know as I look into her eyes? Not sure. I don't think she will remember anything I do with her but I hope I am laying a foundation that will help her become a good and giving person. So I look into her eyes and let her know she is special. Just like Scott is doing in the photo. I think that leaves an indelible mark even if she doesn't remember anything.
