Selecting the perfect babysitter! Some tips and suggestions on caregiver searches

After we paid for our bill at a local pizza restaurant, I leaned in to my husband and said, “We should ask our server if she babysits!”   He thought I was crazy;  “What?! She’s a stranger!”  To me, she looked like a nice, responsible young adult who bantered cutely (or probably politely!) with our crazy kids at the table (ages 14 months and 2.5 yrs).  I told him, “So since we know no teens on our street, and your 20-something cousins live too far-away, how are we supposed to find…

Taking Mommy Time

I am a firm believer in creating balance in every aspect of my life. Sounds hard but for me I keep it simple. If I eat a bag of chips at lunch then I eat an apple for a snack. If I am having a lazy weekend and spend it on the sofa then I take a day to deep clean the house. Now when it comes to mommy time that hasn't always been so easy.
