What Does a Babysitting agency provide?

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Mar 8, 2019 11:46:52 AM

That's a good question, and the answer is: a lot! Finding a babysitter on your own is a tricky endeavor, and even after you find a babysitter that you believe is the right one you may find out they are not, and then you have to start the process all over again...ugh!

Evolution of the babysitter

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Feb 22, 2019 5:50:00 AM

Remember the good old days when your babysitter was the neighborhood kid down the street, mom, dad, or aunts and uncles? I'm sure you do. I do too, but those days are gone; with teenagers increasingly having lives at an earlier age due to planned activities to keep them out of trouble, parents paying their teenage kids to do chores, etc, plus the re-location of so many families to places that they don't have family around; the role of babysitter has become much different than it used to be.

Parents' sick day

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Feb 15, 2019 5:13:00 AM

I have NO idea how parents do it when they are sick. Recently I was sick for 2 weeks from a cold, and the stomach flu. One day I couldn't even lift my head up to answer texts, and operating my business was nearly at a stand still. You can't stop being a mom or a dad! For those who have spouses that can fill in that's got to be super helpful, but for those who don't it has to be a nightmare, not to say it isn't a nightmare for everyone maybe just less of a nightmare.

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Aug 3, 2018 5:00:00 AM

It's the first of the month, and time again to craft with us. I know we could probably do a craft post more frequently, but everyone has craft ideas, and Pinterest is full of them. When Babysitters In a Pinch posts a craft; we've done it, tested it, and will usually share pics that will never, ever look perfect because we are really, truly, crafting with kids; not doing it for THEM.

Crafting With Babysitters 2

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jun 15, 2018 1:24:32 PM

Crafting doesn't have to be finger painting, glue, water colors, crayons, play-doh etc. It can also be about introducing children to different artists, and trying to imitate what they do. It is a lot of fun and educational. It also gets me excited to do things with them. This practice has also been about me educating myself on different appropriate artists that are fun to look at and imitate with children.
