Thursday Throwback: The Baby-Sitters Club

Since my website is about staying inspired and enjoying the journey, I thought I’d take Thursday’s to reminisce a bit…to look back on the things that I loved and that helped me enjoy my journey thus far…
OK, I maybe outing myself here on age, but I was in love with the Baby-sitters club growing up. My entrepreneurial spirit encouraged me to start a baby-sitters club (several times!) and my neighbor was a member. We’d have meetings and everything. We even had a client! (I recall the baby I watched threw up on me! I had to get my parents to help out…)
In any case, I loved those books and I could devour a super series in an afternoon. I was dumbfounded when I found out a few years ago that they were out of print. ( I ran to ebay¬†buying up everything I could). I was an African American dancer like Jessie, I was ambitious (I refuse to say bossy!) like Kristy, but I wanted to be quiet and shy like Mary Anne–so she was my favorite character.
Take a look at how a fellow Baby-sitters club lover put together collages of the members. (she did a fab job!) Enjoy!
