One of the dilemmas faced by working parents is the task of looking for a reliable and trustworthy babysitter… someone to look after their precious one while they are bringing in the dough.
My hubby and I are united in deciding we want a daycare babysitter only. For one, we decided to breastfeed our boy and breastfeeding at night is a surefire way to keep the milk supply going. Plus… we find it such a joy to come back from work to face a cheerful and happy baby. Seriously, looking after baby is so much more fun than dreary work. I kid you not.
I honestly cannot understand why some parents would voluntarily choose to have their babies taken care of by total strangers, in the guise of babysitters. Some quote the excuse “I don’t know how to take care of babies” – then why have babies in the first place?
Parenthood is a lifetime learning experience, and there are so many lessons we learn each day.
So if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and learn my lesson of the day now.
