Some we're allergic to dogs, which wouldn't work out cause we have a dog. Others I wouldn't trust them watching my dog let alone my baby. The girl I liked that I hired lives in the same town & she wanted to meet the girls. First girl I interviewed that wanted to meet the girls. She went in their bedroom & she was playing dress up with them & was having a tea party

Mine have always been somebody from the family. My SIL used to always babysit my kids but she started going to a church, and she started going out too much, and my kids started getting sick real often, they used to always come with a cold. Now I take my kids to a woman that I know from church, and she always have babysitted kids. My kids they get along with her kids and they seem to not have problems, and they always come good, and she is a stay home mom.
