I have a confession: I don’t have a regularly babysitter. What does this mean? It means I rarely go on dates. My parents watch my kids while I work, so they rarely want to see them again in the evenings.
I keep meaning to find and hire a sitter, and I keep putting it off. But now that it’s hitting movie season again, I think I’m going to lose my mind if I don’t find one soon. I want to see Harry Potter. I want to go to a hockey game. I’d like to just go out to get some sushi with my husband. (I’m tired of our date nights consisting of watching Community and eating cookies.)
(Not that there’s anything wrong with Community. Or cookies.)
Do you have a regular babysitter? Where did you find her? What age is appropriate? My mom keeps trying to talk me into letting her 14-year-old neighbor babysit for us but the idea of that is freaking me out. (Especially since I used to watch said 14-year-old when she was a newborn.)
