The babysitter. Day 10 of the WWFC writing challenge.
One of the scariest things you have to do as a parent, is locate a babysitter. In an ideal world, a parent would never EVER need a break from their delightful progeny. But such is not the case, there comes a time you will have to use a babysitter. One teenaged girl had a penchant for locking the kids in the shed. Luckily, the kids were old enough to tell me and once I learned of her "method," her babysitting career ended.
From the worst babysitter to the best, I had the good fortune of locating a home daycare in the neighborhood of a retired woman and her husband. She was just starting her business and my kids were the first two she cared for. Her house always smelled wonderful, good things baked daily, and a feeling of a refuge. It was a sad day when my kids grew too old to remain in her care.
