Trying to find the right babysitter is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. You need to find someone you trust, is available and doesn’t hear the sheer desperation in your voice and run for the hills. During your search, you’ll think there’s some kind of secret code you don’t know because every family except yours has found THE BEST PERSON and it will lead to moments that aren’t your finest.

But finding childcare doesn’t have to be about hitting the playground and sizing up adults like, “Could that be the one?” Nope. Definitely not.
