Do you think these so called perfect parents weren't doing something on new years eve? I would have offered to keep her child if I had read this but I went to a friends house and kept my 2 children plus 2 more for the night because others wanted to get out and I really don't mind staying home, I'm older and really have that IDGAF attitude. BUT the point in all of this is that she was going to get someone she doesn't personally know to keep her child, when parents try to find a daycare or baby sitter they call the daycare or babysitter and say what do you have to offer for my child, what makes you better than all the rest, they tell you what makes them better and you go in to visit. Some parents will stay a long time observing, but some parents can't handle 10 mins of the 20-maybe 50 children running around screaming and playing. So then you have talked to the person on the phone visited them for 10 mins and then trusted your children in there care.<quoted text>
Even still, if you have a 6 month old baby, you should stay home and take care of it instead of worrying about getting drunk for some damn New Year's Party. If you care about your child, you would've stayed home with them. And any potential babysitter for your child should not be a last minute thing. The girl acted like she was more worried about going out all night for New Year's than worrying about who was gonna watch her child.
So if this girl had called and talked to volunteer babysitter, looked at sex offender registry to be sure they weren't on there, and then sat and talked with the person at their home for 10 mins then decided if it was right or not, how is it any different? It's really not,, not saying I would do it personally but just saying it's basically the same.
Next thing is I have some friends that I don't talk to all the time. I hang out with them some but I may not necessarily have their number right now, we are in hard times and some of my friends have prepaid phones so they jump from number to number when it's cheaper for them. I could contact them by getting on myspace or I can call one person who can call another person who can call friends neighbor to relay the message but who wants to do all that. So yeap I have friends that I don't have their phone number but I would let them keep my children because I do trust them.
