    Dear teachers.

    I'd like to know the meaning of 1,2 and 3 in the next story.
    1. made for economic sitters.
    2. the extra time that they got to spoil me rotten.
    3. get my breakfast.

    I was one of Grandma's favorite grand children since I spent the most time with them. With mom working full time to pay the bills, her parents made for economic sitters.
    and loved the extra time that they got to spoil me rotten.
    Each day after I woke up I'd get my breakfast, go out and play for a while.

    1. inexpensive babysitters (bad word choice-- it should be 'economical')
    2. the grandparents enjoyed having more time with their grandchild, and were permissive.
    3. prepare breakfast
