Hello,
We are moving to fl in a month, I am trying to get my sister to come with us, but so far it is just my husband, kids, and I. We don't really have family down there. Do any of you use care.com for your baby sitters, as far as like a date night sitter? Any person in particular ?
Any advice is appreciated. The kids will not be in daycare, but we need an occasional sitter.

We moved here about a year and a half ago. No family here but haven't had a need for sitters. My area has a Facebook page of sitters available I think. What area are you relocating to?

So I'm guessing you guys don't really do date nights? Lol

Either Fort Myers, Naples, or Tampa

What part of Fl do you live in?

I don't think I could do FB sitters. I don't even know that I could use care.com. I've never had to use a sitter I didn't personally know :/ I'll probably just have to fly my mom down once a month or something , or drive up to PA, and get her once a month. I'm too scared of what people could do to my kids

My kids are too old for a babysitter. When I did need one, the daughter of someone I worked with, say for them.

It's hot almost year round, the schools are bad, the people are rude and crazy; I could go on and on but I digress. I wouldn't trust care.com down there.
