The weekend is fast approaching. Have you scheduled any you time?
Yes, I know, childhood is fleeting and all that. But a happy parent is a good parent. And you need some time to yourself! And if you’re partnered up, you and your better half almost certainly need some couple time.
So what keeps us from doing it? I know one issue for me is actually remembering to not only get the dates on the calendar but also getting a sitter for those events we can’t miss. My bookkeeping leaves something to be desired. I often have to hunt down scraps of paper to get find names and numbers. And when I do it’s a convoluted system to actually get them scheduled. Half the time I end up with two sitters and half the time I end up with none at all.
Enter SitterScout.com. This new site not only allows you to store all of your sitters’ information and the dates you need them, it also allows you to schedule your babysitters (from your desktop or smartphone.)
It only took me a few minutes (well a few minutes after I tracked down those scraps of paper) to get everyone’s info (email and phone) entered. Then I took a look at April, decided when I needed dates, and sent out my requests. They received them in the favored communication of youngsters (texting, email is so passe) and were able to text me back a yes or a no.
Easy, peasy, shomeasy.
Yeah baby, April is going to be all about me. Oh, and date night too. Join me won’t you? Give SitterScout a whirl!
