I am the mom of two children, a 2 year old little girl and a 11 year old boy. I have never used "outside" help for looking after my babies, I've always had my mom but unfortunately she is getting more frail and dont want to add to her load lol. My son is usually a well mannered boy but like all 11yr olds can play up. My little girl loves people. She does have the 2yr old tantrums on odd occasions. She can be very stubborn but shes a very happy little girl that usually has everyone wrapped around her little finger. I would only want a babysitter for odd evenings out- cinema, meals out odd things like that really just to claw back a little bit of amanda time as opposed to just being mommy. At the minute I'm just trying to get my options/ details together as I'm new to this. Would like to find out about costs and such. I am very nervous about the idea but I would love to be able to go out for an evening with my other half for a date instead of a family meal lol just every now and again. Maybe sort of once a month depending on price. Please txt as I am half deaf and struggle to hear on the phone.
