I may be a mom now, but I still like to go out and have fun from time to time. I love my son, as he is my world, but I’m sure all us moms (and dads) realize that sometimes we just need to find time to ourselves or have a date night with out our significant other. Often I still get the calls from friends saying “Hey, let’s go to here tomorrow night!” and then I find myself making the rounds calling to find a trustworthy sitter at the last minute.
It can be hard! You have the challenge of trying to find someone at the last minute, but also finding someone you can entrust your child. Reliable, honest, and caring traits are a MUST for me in any sitter. Sure, I’d love a night out, but this is my son, and would like to find someone who will provide him with the same care as I do.
So this is where UrbanSitter comes in! UrbanSitter is an online resource where parents are able to browse through and book babysitters recommended by people they know! You can search sitters by date and time, and then book jobs, and even pay online. It’s so fast, simple, and easy to use. Want to know the best part though? It’s FREE to join!

While I was financially compensated for the posting above, this is 100% my own honest opinion. No one has influenced me otherwise.

this is a wonderful idea. I can’t tell you how many sentences start with, “Well we’d love to go but we don’t have a reliable babysitter.”

They for sure didn’t have this when my kiddos were young. You just called the girl who lived down the street LOL! This is way cool!
This seems like a great idea at least in theory. I’m not sure my area would have anyone listed though seems how it’s such a small area. Maybe it’ll get popular enough that it’ll be used even in small towns.
That’s a neat idea. I’ll have to let my cousins know about it.
We don’t have a “sitter” and with #3 on the way, I fear I will never leave the house! I will definitely have to check this out!
