Mama Needs a Date Night... Now.

I have a three year old and a seven month old at home, and this means one thing…. I seriously, majorly, desperately need a date night with my husband. Come to think of it, I could also use a date night with myself.


Unfortunately, date nights (with or without my plus-one) have become few and far in-between. We’re busy, we’re exhausted, and we’ve got our hands very full. Not to say that we don’t have our fair share of help. I’m incredibly fortunate that my mom plays the part of grandma, nanny, and playmate to my two little ones. She’s my support system and my go-to babysitter. But the truth is: I rely on her so much to cover day-to-day childcare duties while I’m working—that I don’t like to ask her to watch the babes while the hubs and I, ya know, go out for cocktails. (That's just greedy.)

But finding (and trusting) an outside babysitter that’s available exactly when I need her, has been a challenge… Until now (I hope!).


I’ve just discovered Date Night Now by Sittercity. It takes all the work and worry out of finding a sitter. They vet all sitters in-person and can perform an enhanced background check. Each candidate subject to one-on-one conversation and interview; review of online social profiles, and continuous monitoring of parent feedback and ratings.
