I”m over at Smithfield today sharing tips and ideas for planning a meal that your babysitter can make. Hopefully it will help to inspire some date nights. ;)
From the post:
“When your preparing for a babysitter to come and watch your kids over dinner it”s important to plan ahead for what your children will eat so that the babysitter doesn”t have to scrounge around at the last minute. Keep in mind:
- Most babysitters are young teenage girls who probably haven”t done a lot of cooking in their lives, so you will most likely need to get most of the work done ahead of time.
- Keep things simple so that there is minimal work for the babysitter to do. If you have trouble cooking with the kids running around your feet imagine how much harder it will be for them.
- Make sure you have something that you know your children will love so you don”t have to worry about the babysitter trying to force feed your kids.
