Iâ€™m 17, been babysitting for about three years now. just recently i babysat my neighbors child. I was told to expect the worse because he was such a hyperactive child. but he was very well eehaved and a good listener. I even got him to go to bed fifteen minutes early because i read him a story. Now if only all the kids would act this way.
After years of doing motherâ€™s helper gigs with some great kids, I finally became old enough to do real, actual babysitting. After being hired by a few nice couples, I was suddenly hired by another. Looking after an adorable, happy 7 month old boy who has some fantastic parents to work for makes me feel great!!
Ok, so once when I was doing a â€ťspur-of-the-moment-because-no-one-else-couldâ€ť babysitting job, I was having my â€ťmonthly.â€ť As I was hurriedly getting ready to go, I forgot probably the most important thing. A pad or a tampon. Smart, right? lol when I got there, and the parents had left, I realized this, and had to call my parents. (Who would really want to babysit with this kind of problem, right?) Well, I hobbled around the house, making dinner and making sure that the kids didnâ€™t start fighting. Finally my dad shows up and I become the happiest camper on that block. My personal experience, â€ťWhen you are having your monthly, remember pads and tampons!â€ť ugh lol!
Ok, so I was babysitting this absolutely adorable little baby boy. His parents had been gone for like 3.5 hours. It was nearing 9:30, and they were already 1/2 an hour late. Then, the worst thing happened… the dog had to pee. The baby hates his playpen, but I had nowhere else to put him, so in he went. He started screaming, and I took the dog out. The dog finished his business and we came inside, I took his leash off, and he almost ran out the door. But I stopped him, and got the kid out of the playpen, as I let the kid start crawling around, the mailman showed up, dropped and dropped the mail through the slot, which then of course landed on… the baby. TERRIBLE night…
I was babysitting 2 boys and they were fighting then the door bell rang i looked out the window to see a older man with a binder in his hand. I unlocked the door but left the latch on so it would not open all the way. He demanded my parents, Â I told him there were busy… and it went on and on and then he said are you sure they are home or are you a babysitter? I closed the door and locked it, told the kids to go upstairs in their bedrooms, and grabbed the phone. Then I opened the door again and said “If you do not leave the property i will call the cops!” – it worked – but he was hanging around the street for a couple of hours. I also think he was drunk because it was 10:30 at night.
