Kristi --- 7 years ago -

Part of me wonders what on earth I am doing putting this online but I'm really stuck. I'm new to the area and my baby is due soon. I have to have a c-section and during the recovery I need help with my 2 toddlers and with some of the housework. My mom and my mother-in-law cannot come as planned. I have no idea how to find someone that I can trust in this situation. I'm asking the few people that I know that have kids but so far no one can even recommend a babysitter for a normal situation. I would need help during the time that my husband is at work - 6 to 8 hrs per day. We would want to interview and get to know this person as much as possible. We need good references for this person and they would need to be someone that I am very comfortable with since we'll all be in my house together for hours each day. Does anyone know someone who fits this description?

Hey girl,
have you tried http://www.sittercity.com

Not sure if you are Military ..

Hi Kristi. I do babysitting on here and can be available any time you need me in case you can't find someone. I have two toddlers and I could watch your toddlers at my house if you ever need me too. I'm afraid I can't come to your house because of my kids but if you need someone you can trust and that is reliable let me know. I do part time babysitting and my prices are more then reasonable. Private message me if you would like to meet with me or even use me as back up. Thanks.

I have a wonderful babysitter outside of base if you are interested. She will work with your budget and has references. Her name is Luz Gonzales, she lives by the German School. I think having someone in the home is not a great idea in the beginning, especially when you get home, you are going to be tired and uncomfortable. Best to be out of house, getting that well deserved rest. Let me know if you want her number.

Joy,

she is at home, she needs help while her hubby is at work. 

Joy --- 7 years ago -

Claudia, I ramble too much sometimes. LOL. I was suggesting it maybe easier for her to have her children watched outside the home. I remember coming home and did not want anyone in my house for weeks, not even visitors. I had to really adjust. But if she is used to it, then it maybe a good thing for her.

If you haven't found someone, I can help too! I live on base and watch two little ones but I can always help with some of the housework or if you are close too where I am on base, I could watch the kids too. Just let us know what you need. I charge really fair prices too. Whatever you need, all of us girls I'm sure can chip in to help you out!! Hope you find or have found someone! :)

I can always help as well. My husband is deployed and we do not have any kids, so I have all the time in the world. Let me know, I am always around! Ooh, and I live on base too :)
