I think it's weird they'd offer to babysit if they';re not good with kids. Maybe they just want to help and it's an obvious way to do a favor for a friend?<quoted text>
I have had child-free friends offer to babysit, but there is a reason that they don't have children and they are not great with the boys. My friends and I have started trading services.
This was fun: I emailed a list of nights/weekends I am free to babysit in May, and Katie was thrilled because they had Twins tickets for one of the Friday nights I had available, and they didn't have anyone lined up to babysit. Her inlaws won't babysit unless the kids (who are WONDERFUL) are already in bed.
