Sittercity – Finding the Perfect Sitter For Your Kids

53b33daac168d
 

Finding a good sitter can be hard. You want someone to watch your kids that you can trust. You also want them to love and take great care of your kids when you have to work or just want a date with your husband!

Sittercity can help connect you with a great sitter for your family. Sittercity is the leading online child care solution, connecting families nationwide with babysitters and nannies who meet their unique needs. We are the largest and most trusted source for families to find local in-home caregivers quickly and easily. Every three seconds, we connect a family and a caregiver.

Here are four tips that can help you find the perfect sitter for your kids.

1. It is important to screening potential candidates – When you conduct an initial screening you will want to create a short list of caregivers who fit your family’s needs. Sittercity is a great option because you can see what other Sittercity parents who’ve hired a particular caregiver in the past have to say. Their insight about a caregiver’s performance and personality can help you decide if someone is a good fit for your family.

2. Interview candidates to identify your top picks. When you have narrowed your search to three to five candidates, it’s time to conduct interviews. Not sure what to ask? Sittercity will provide an Interview Questions Guide for every stage of the process.

First you want to reach out to your short list so you can conduct phone interviews. Then you can meet for in-person interviews. Once you narrow down your choices you then need to get your kid’s approval.

3. Verify your caregiver’s history and background. Once you’re done with interviews, you might feel like you’ve found the perfect caregiver. Great! Just a few more steps to help you make your final decision. Make sure you check their references! Reach out to the references listed on the caregiver’s profile to gain additional insight, and don’t hesitate to request more references. Be sure to verify the information your potential caregiver has given you is correct and ask questions about how she performed on the job.

4. Monitor the relationship to ensure its still a good fit. Once you’ve hired a caregiver, observe them on the job to ensure they’re meeting your expectations. When you get home, ask for a brief progress report on how the day went. It’s also a good idea to ask your kids how they’re enjoying their time with her; their reactions or feelings could reveal a lot about what’s happening when you’re not around.

If you are ready to hire a sitter, make sure you check out SitterCity. Plus this July you will get 30% off the 3-month membership.

Start Your Day With Lifeway Kefir Smoothies

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias , Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

  Final Kefir

Every morning I like to start my day with a smoothie that includes  yogurt with probiotics. It is a really great way to start my day with a nutritious drink. But it can be a little bit of a hassle. I have to get out the blender, find all the fruit, add some juice and yogurt , and blend it up. Then I have to put away the fruit and juice and clean the blender. It’s a lot of work.

I was at Winn Dixie purchasing my milk and I noticed Lifeway Kefir Lowfat Raspberry Milk Smoothies, I was excited to try it. I could just pour my drink and I had my breakfast – quick, easy, and delicious. Plus it was filling and very nutritious! You can even serve it over fruit or granola. Or even add it to your smoothies! Check out all the great stuff about this drink!

Lifeway Kefir is a smooth, tart, refreshing cousin of yogurt, often thought of as the “Champagne of Dairy.” Originating in Eastern Europe over 2000 years ago, kefir’s probiotic cultures have long been enhancing feelings of well-being. Lifeway Kefir contains 12 live and active Probiotic cultures that support the immune system and balance digestive health. It is naturally Gluten Free, 99% Lactose Free and contains No Artificial Sweeteners and is rich in Calcium. Lifeway also only uses milk that comes from cows that are not treated with pesticides, antibiotics, or synthetic growth hormones. The cows are grass fed and GMO free.

Celebrate Summer With Kool-Aid Fruit Drinks

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser.

 

Celebrate Summer

Drinking fruit juice drinks remind me of summertime. I remember playing all day at my friends house and we would get so excited when my friend’s mom would bring out the coolest Kool-Aid pitcher filled with cold, refreshing Kool-Aid. Summer is hot in Florida, so it’s always nice to enjoy a nice cold drink.

slide collage.jpg

This summer I will be spending a few weeks with my sister. We both have 3 kids that we need to keep busy each day. So while the kids are playing on the backyard water slider or while we are watching her oldest play All Star Little League games we are enjoying large, cold glasses of Tropical Punch Kool-Aid. It’s a great way to #KoolOff ! We are having fun reminiscing about our childhood summers.

baeball

There are so many varieties of Kool-Aid. I went to my local Walmart and purchased a 96oz Ready-To-Drink Tropical Punch Kool-AidI also picked up some juice pouches. I also love that I can buy powdered Kool-Aid in so many flavors. You can find Peach Mango, Grape, Strawberry Kiwi, Watermelon, Blue Raspberry and so many more flavors!

Head to your local Walmart and re-live your childhood. Sit back relax and enjoy your favorite Kool-Aid drink. Take it to the beach, bring it to the pool, or your favorite amusement park. I love the 96oz ready to drink bottles – it is such a great deal. You can find it at Walmart for just $1.98 per bottle! It is on the drink aisle or on a large display in the middle of the aisles.

You can meet Jim Dillard, pro fisherman! He could be coming to your local Walmart to help promote the new 96oz bottles! There will be product giveaways, t-shirts, games, and more fun activities!
