You'd think it would be easy, with a recession, high unemployment, living near a big university, etc....
But we can't find a sitter to save our lives! It's been challenging for a couple of years now.

I think it's more of an indictment on how people raise their kids these days when people would rather starve than earn money by sitting someone else's undisciplined children.
Yesterday at the grocery store some kid sitting in the cart was discussing the cookie in the bakery with his dad. The dad was wishy washy and wouldn't just come out and tell the kid "NO COOKIE". The minute the cart moved forward without the cookie the kid went off like an air raid siren.
I started laughing, I knew it was coming, it was too funny.
Only kids I'll watch are my own grand kids because they know better.

Come to Hoboken, NJ. If you are a college girl living here, it's considered abnormal if you haven't baby sat before graduation.
