Sahm babysitters are a joke

I put up an ad for someone to watch my children. I found who I thought was the prefect person. She mentioned how she had child of her own too. I thought "oh cool" but didn't think too much about it. Well the day comes that I would need her to come over and watch the girls and she brings another child with her?! Umm wtf? She never mentioned about bringing her daughter and she didn't ask.

Babysitting is a JOB. Like all jobs, you do not bring your kids.

Plus, why in the world would I want another child in my house? If they get hurt I get in trouble. F that.

I told her to leave and not come back.

Seriously, if you at at home with your kids do not bring them to babysit if it's not in your home. Don't be rude

I agree she should have asked. I babysit, my neighbors kid, and I have two daughters of my own im a stay at home mom, but my neighbors bring their daughter to my house. I don't think I would babysit at someone else's house sense I ha e two kids under the age of two, that need my time.

So she should get a babysitter for her kid so she can watch yours? Strange.

You knew she was a sahm with a child.  What did you expect her to do with her child?  Was she supposed to hire a sitter so she could sit for your kids?  That kind of defeats the purpose of a sahm trying to make some extra cash.  Just sayin'.

I didn't know she was a sahm until she brought her kid

I had a SAHM sitter for 9 years-paid her close to 90,000 in that time. It was no joke. Of course my child went to her  house-there are tax implications to having a sitter in your home that I didn't care to have.

And of course my kid got very close to her family-it was a real win win.

So you thought she was a professional babysitter?  Did you not ask for references?
