I have 3 boys, 9, 4, and 3. I would like SO and I to go out every now and then. A quiet dinner or a movie maybe once a month. I would like to find someone to babysit for me so i'm not always asking my mom to watch them. I don't really know anybody in my apt complex so I'm just wondering. Do any of you have a regular babysitter who isn't family and how did you find them? What kinds of questions did you ask them and how much do you pay them?Answer Question

This is terrible, but I waited until my oldest was 14. She babysits for other families, so why not me? Before that, I used my mother as a sitter. But my neighbor found her sitter through the local college that's not far from here. She did the same thing missanc did, she posted on a job board. The gal was really good. I think they paid her $10/hr. My dd is now almost 16 and she get about $8/hr, depending on the kids and the situation.
