Being a work at home mom can put me in a crunch sometimes when I am invited to an event that does not allow my daughter to tag along. Only having lived in New York City just over a year, it's been difficult for me to find a reliable babysitter that is available to watch my daughter during the day.
I've always thought about using a babysitting service, but I am always a bit nervous about having someone that my daughter has never met come over to watch her. When I was contacted by Lucky Lil' Darlings, a fully-insured, comprehensive family care solutions company, I was excited to check them out, hoping they could solve my babysitting dilemma.
Founded by Lindsay Bell,Lucky Lil' Darlings was established to help busy families respond to lifes daily demands and provide top-quality family care for your little ones.
After doing a vast amount of research on their site and speaking directly with Lindsay, I was happy to let one of their sitters come over and watch my daughter while my husband and I had out date night at the opera. All of the sitters are LLD certified through rigorous national background checks that have also been personally interviewed and screened and have direct referrals that ensures that they have a great a great staff. The sitters are also college-educated professionals from diverse, interesting backgrounds, and consistently reviewed based on parent feedback.
I was so impressed when our babysitter, Annie, emailed me telling me a little bit about herself and even included her resume. It not only made me more relaxed, but also helped me with telling my daughter a little bit about Annie before she arrived.
Annie arrived on time and was very excited to meet my daughter. Although my daughter was a bit apprehensive at first, she warmed up to Annie immediately when she offered to have a tea party with her.
My husband and I left for the opera knowing our daughter was in good hands. We texted Annie throughout the night to check in and were pleasantly surprised when she told us Harlan was already in bed and went down without a fight.
Our overall experience with Lucky Lil' Darlings was exceptional and I would definitely use them again.
