Once upon a time, in a land far away from runny noses and math homework, there lived a couple of married hipsters who actually left their house on occasion.

6,412 sitters were found on sittercity.com in my area. Perhaps one day we'll use one of them and actually have a night out with other grown-ups.

5,320 - Now that's a lot of sitters! Being that we just recently moved to this area and we don't know too many people, I have yet to find a babysitter. And with 3 boys I NEED ONE! It would be so wonderful to find someone we can trust. I would be able to volunteer at my son's schools, go on a date with hubby, schedule a salon appointment. Endless possibilities! I really REALLY hope I win this. Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

I found 273 sitters on there in my area. I'd love to win this giveaway because the only family we have in town is my mum, and she's not much on babysitting very often. ?!?!?!? Yah, I know. Right?! So, my husband and I rarely get to go out anywhere sans kiddos because we don't know anyone we could have babsit. This site would be a great resource.

Thanks for the entry.

Another great sitter site is Care.com. Site is really user-friendly and had an abundance of qualified sitters. They do free background checks, and sitters' pages are all approved by a team of moms. You can get a discount on joining by using the code CLUBMOM.
