SitterCity

Anyone used this? DH and I need other options for sitters. We only have his side of the family around, mine live about 1000 miles away. Since DH's sis has 3 kids, the grandparent's time is always in high demand.

I have a 14 yr old who comes on outings with me sometimes as a mother's helper or I let her watch them when the kids are already in bed but we have weddings and things coming up where someone will need to actually be with the kids without us and then put them down for the night.

Used it. Loved it. Found some great college girls to sit. Love that they have background checks available.

Thanks! Did you do the annual or just the month to month? It kinda seems like alot upfront but I'm wondering if I spring for the month and hope I find some great sitters early.

Actually, the military pays for us. It is a perk of Uncle Sam. I did pay for a month of care.com before they offered it though and it was PLENTY of time to find someone I thought.
