Do you recall your last date night OUT of the house? Do you know the last time you actually HIRED someone to watch your children? Pets while on vacation? Or maybe even hire a housekeeper to take a stay-cation from housework?

As a mother I have a hard time finding a sitter for my kids. Even when our kids were just THE kid (Grant) finding a sitter to keep up with his high energy and could be responsible was rather difficult. We have a pool and even though the pool is locked and no one can access but The Chad and I we would carry a heavy conscience with “strangers” watching our children with a pool. I relied heavily on my mother and to some degree I still do rely heavily on her to watch my children when I ask. I trust her fully. She is ACLS certified so CPR has got nothing on her, not to mention she is grandma, so the kids love when Grandma Sandy comes over.

Now that the twins are not infants and I am not breastfeeding The Chad and I would like to do a lot more as a couple. Date night, a movie, shopping, or just a break from the kids to gather our sanity. We tried an online sitter service before and the process was awful. Interviewing children (13+ year olds) basically to watch my children. Children should not be watching other children. PERIOD! A hormonal teenager does not have their wits or right mind about them to watch a toddler and a six year old.
