Description of service

This was a pretty typical situation where my wife and I wanted to go out for dinner and a movie, but we have a son who is 5 and none of our family was in town to take care of him. We called a neighbor to see if their daughter would be willing to babysit for a couple hours to make some money. We decided that $10/hour was a fairly good price for a babysitter. She just had to put our son to bed around 9 and make sure he got a snack before bed. Beyond that she was allowed to watch tv.

Review of Service

Our son isn't one for many word seeing as he's very shy, but he just fell in love with the babysitter saying that she was just so much fun to play with. She got him some grapes for a healthy snack before bed. I can say that I will definitely be using this young lady again because she truly proved herself that night.


Make sure your babysitter has something fun to do with your child that won't get them too riled up so they will be willing to go to bed on time. We usually go with Candyland or hide and seek
