The Babysitter Checklist

paint-kid-dogYou’ve scored a sitter, a hard to get 7:30 p.m. reservation, and shimmied your way into your pre-baby jeans. Things are looking up for Saturday night.

Head into the evening completely worry-free by completing this babysitter checklist: Everything a sitter needs in case a not-going-to-happen emergency actually happens.

After going over all of the info with our sitter, we  like to leave ours on the front hall table or the fridge, for easy access.
