This is the last week of school for my girls. They’ve been at the same school for over 5 and 3 years and it’s definitely bittersweet. We’re going to love the savings, but it’s nice that they are in an environment where they are having fun and learning and I can get some work done.
Summer’s going to be a little different. Working at home with three kids seems close to impossible. Especially when two of them can get into trouble quickly, if they feel like it. (They look like trouble, don’t they?) I could start a list, but let’s just say we’ve got marker in places we shouldn’t, a ceiling fan has been broken and their little sister has gone for some turbulent swing rides).
When I’m needed a day to get things done without helpers, I’m sure I’ll be calling on a sitter to come and watch the girls, especially since we don’t have family close. Or, on the rare chance that Mr. Serious and I want to get out for a date night (remind me what that is again?) With our current run of sitters, we plan on taking our searching elsewhere and what to check out SittersUlove.com.
SittersULove.com, launched in February 2012, is a great online resource that allows families to connect with both babysitters and nannies by searching in their area (metro Atlanta and Athens) as well as by other qualities. In fact, you can actually search for a caregiver for free by typing in your zip code. This will allow you to see a preview of the caregiver’s profile.
Here’s what really sets them apart from other site, all of the sitters and nannies have to successfully complete a criminal background check before they can even be listed on their site. Every single one of them. And, of course you can communicate with the caregivers and do interviews, etc, before selecting them to provide care for your children.
SittersUlove.com would like to provide one metro Atlanta/Athens area family a ONE MONTH membership giveaway, which provides you with one month of unlimited access to caregiver profiles which includes:
- background checks
- ability to communicate with caregivers by using their internal messaging system
