I think our babysitter has a crush on my DH

We have one child and the sitter watches him while we work. Our sitter is 20, DH and I are in our early 30s. We are all facebook friends (she sent us friend requests when we first hired her) and she always tags my DH in pics of our son but not me. She also texts him at least once a week and tries to start a conversation. He always handles the pick up and drop off so maybe she feels like she knows him on a more personal level, IDK. My DH dismisses it all as her "being a kid." I don't know if I should talk to her or just let it go. Wwyd?

Just let it go. If she has a crush its probably a teen crush it will pass.

As long as you can trust it laugh it off and take it as a compliment you have good taste!

But maybe hire a new sitter

Based on that, I would just let it go. If it gets worse, or escalates, then I would get a new sitter.

Her texting him trying to start up convos..that's just playing with fire. If she's not a close family friend, and it's not about babysitting duties, that shouldn't be happening. "Being a kid" means she's not gonna think abuot her actions and consquences if she's trying to rope him into an affair or something. Not saying he would..but bitches be catty and shady! lol. Also, she's young, but not a kid.

Her posting photos of your child on FB is the only thing that's strange to me. It's natural for her to feel more comfortable with him than you if she is dealing with him all of the time.

 i it bothers you, talk to her. Let her know you don't think it is right for her to text him unless it has to do with your child or her job.

Quoting Mrs.CATWOMEN91: Just let it go. If she has a crush its probably a teen crush it will pass.

The babysitter isn't a teen. She's a 20 year old adult.
