Ever have a hard time finding a good sitter? I know some moms who stoop to eavesdropping on the coversation of an unsuspecting twenty-something at the coffee shop to see if she might possibly babysit. Then out of desperation, they'll snatch her up, asking if she's free on Saturday night. Not quite the best way to meet a reliable, capable and dependable person who's going to be in charge of your precious little ones, is it? Yet finding good childcare isn't always easy.
Good thing there's Mommy Mixer, a service that puts parents and sitters in contact with each other through a fun, relaxed "mixer" atmosphere. A Mommy Mixer is an hour-long event that puts moms in contact with qualified college students who want to sit occasionally. They each get to personally interview one another, and moms leave with a list of sitters to call for their next date night. Mommy Mixers are held in cities around the country to offer moms a great opportunity to meet several qualified sitters at once.
Beats hanging around the coffee shop. And who knows - you just might find the sitter of your dreams!
