What is the difference?
I don't exactly need someone full time (babysitter).
My hours are usually fixed although flexible (nanny).
Yet this individual has to feed my children (babysitter), transport my big ones to activities (nanny), and run errands as needed (nanny).
I pay hourly (babysitter).
I need someone to do light housekeeping such as empty the dishwasher and keep the house tidy (nanny and babysitter).
As I was writing the advertisement for new nanny/babysitter I realized that I have a lot of demands.
This is the applicant I am looking for:
Too bad she lives in Chicago.
Friend of mine or not...this poster describes Audrey's reaction to our sitter-to-be:
This process is no fun.
And I have barely begun to look through the applicants...
