I have found a pattern. A pattern in the way parents answer the question, "do you know of a good baby sitter?" They pause and say either:
(a) "Um, yes, but she's really busy. She really doesn't have time. She's the only person we use."
- or -
(b)"No, we don't." Which means they are lying.
Now let me just say - I am not looking for someone full time. Not even part time. I just want two-friggin-early-evenings-(2-hours-max!)-dinners-out-without-chasing-a-toddler-around- the-restaurant-and-let's-not-forget-the- -adult-conversation-with-my-husband. That's four hours a month where I don't have to worry about picking poop up or changing diapers. Is that too much to ask for? Seriously.
