Someone referred me to a woman who needs a baby sitter. Which is awesome! But she called me this afternoon (mind you, never met the woman, she’s only heard of me through the grapevine) asking me to baby sit her son tomorrow morning. Asking to drop him off at my house at 9 am. She didn’t ask to…
No def not just you. I’m exactly how you are. I’m SO overly protective of my children. That is really insane that she’s willing to just hand you her kid. Hopefully she lets you know if her child has any allergies, medications, illnesses or something before handing you them. So weird…
Ohhhh girl trust me I wrote a list of questions I have for her! What he can/can’t eat, feeding/nap times, Etc..the list goes on…all stuff normally the patently would let me know, not me having to ask her…some people are just so weird..I don’t understand how she’s willing to leave her baby with me . Obviously he will be fine with me, but she doesn’t know that!!
Thats good you are so prepared but sad cause you shouldn’t have to ask her most of those like you just said. Im honestly so curious to how she is gonna act when she drops her kid off. Will she just rush to get out or will she sit down for a bit and go over everything with you? You’ll have to update us. Or at least me cause I’m really curious haha.
She already said to me on the phone she would be dropping him and running off because she’s cutting it close on time to get to work! Originally she was saying 9-1 I would be baby siting him, now she said closer to 2-2:30 because she has something else to do and pick up her other son at school. I forgot to add. She also said.”I’m not worried, because this is my third. I’m not a crazy careful mom and as long as he’s being watched that’s fine with me.” So ??? Just because he’s your third your not cautious about having his life trusted by someone you don’t know??? Okay lady.. My mom is all scared she’s being like this so she can accuse me of something and cause a law suit lol. Now I’m nervous.
Whaaat? Omg that just really blows my mind haha. Like, I get it.. the more kids you have the less crazy you are about certain things. Like those Luvs commercials “first time mom, second time mom..” but seriously? My mother babysat as a way of income and boy, she had some REALLY strange people. There was one parent who couldn’t get her kid out the car and came in and asked my mother if she should help her. My mom said “no, if he doesn’t want to be here I will not make him stay. You’ll have to find someone else if he doesn’t want to be here.” The woman was pissed but why would you want to leave your child screaming in a place he’s uncomfortable with? Maybe thats just how some parents are. I still think she is crazy to not ask more questions about you. Idk about you but that nanny cam video/court case has def made me think more than twice about hiring someone to watch my kids. I want to know everything. Maybe the person who referred her told her about you?
