If you have little ones, your date nights are probabaly far and few between. We are very lucky to have two sets of grandparents nearby that occasionally help us out with watching our boys (sometimes even overnight! Yahoooo!), but every now and then, we use a babysitter.
Fast forward to the big night out.
If you are anything like us, then you are probably already running late, looking way too much like frazzled-parents-who-don't-get-out-much and forgetting everything you need to tell your babysitter (or the grandparents) in that three minute ride you have from her house to your house...
My blogger friend (and Super-Mom to super adorable twins Aurdrey and David) Dory, from The Doyle Dispatch has created the perfect document for capturing anything and everything the sitter should know.
Sitter Notes! GENIUS! Here is what she created for our family:
I cannot wait to use this. I feel like this can be filled out WAY in advance. For once I can be prepared. No rushing. No last minute "Oh-I-totally-I-forgot-to-tell-you..." texts sent to the sitter 30 seconds after you pull out of the driveway. All the info is right there.
Fill out the info that won't change (phone numbers, allergies, emergency contacts, etc) and laminate this bad-boy. Use a dry erase marker and you can use this over and over again, all while saving a tree or two.
Be sure to check out Notes for the Sitter and other personalized creations in Dory's Personally Yours etsy shop. You can purchase the sitter stationery as is, or for an extra dollar, Dory will personalize the form to meet your specific needs (bottle feeding amounts/times, tricks the kiddoes may attempt, etc.). Not only would this work for parents, but this would also be perfect if you have a pet sitter or house sitter.
Thanks for creating this for our family, Dory!
