2) Looking for a Babysitter - 6 days a week (Atlanta)
Be local only. Really local.
A few points before we start:
-My child is six months old. Male.
-6 days a week, every week. Including EVERY Saturday.
-11 to 12 hours a day, all six days.
-I will only pay weekly, until I am sure you will last long enough. Then I will consider paying a lump sum once a month.
-I need someone permanent. Someone my child can learn to love and trust. You, essentially, will be the primary caretaker.
-English needs to be the primary language around my son. I can appreciate some Spanish, as his father and father's side of the family speak Spanish as well as English.
If you can not comply to ALL of those points, please do not apply. He is a very easy baby. Quiet. Hangs out by himself and plays. Enjoys floor time. Drinks milk as well as eats Gerber from a spoon. Will watch movies and loves to "talk" and laugh. I am in the car business. My job requires me to be there Monday-Saturday, from 10am-8pm. Saturdays are our busiest days, and I, at some times, are there from 9am-9pm. But usually the same hours on Saturday as Monday-Friday. I understand that this is a lot to take in and manage. It's been hard trying to find someone, believe me.
Remember: Be Local! I can not say that enough. I do not have time to go an hour out of my way, before or after work. I live on Peachtree Corners Circle in Norcross. Please email me with comments and rates. Don't try and knock me over the head with price. Someone told me 300 per week. I am in high dollar sales. I know what is too much. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. My son and I appreciate it.

4) need a sitter for sat. night, valentine's & occasional (Seattle)
I need a babysitter for tomorrow night and occasional weekends. I can't afford much, just really need a break from her since I haven't had one in 18 months! If u would be interested in exchanging a weekend babysitter we could plan that out. Anyways, she is 18 months. Loves to sing, dance, animals and play. She is not a picky eater, goes to bed around 830 and usually stays asleep. I would prefer it to be in your home just because I rent a room with roommates but if you can't for some reason at your place, its fine. Anyone is welcome to apply. The email will go straight to my phone so I will probably get back to you right away. Email your rates, availability, what home would work best, experience and tell a lil about yourself! Hope to hear from you!

16) Childcare needed asap!! (Colorado)
Hey Everyone! I am in need of someone to come to our home (off timberline and harmony in fort collins) monday-friday from about 8:30-5 to watch our 17 month old son. Sometimes hours may be until 4 because my hours vary. Carson's dad and i are currently both full time college students and trying to work as much as we can so money is tight, we can only afford to pay someone $300 a month, and we would pay every other monday. When watching carson we need someone who will feed him snacks, breakfast/lunch and put him down for a nap. Other than that he has a ton of energy and would love to play at the park behind our house when it gets a little warmer, or just play inside instead of sitting in front of the tv all day. I posted an add not that long ago but the babysitter that we chose didnt work out. If you are interested please email me and tell me a little about yourself. We need care starting ASAP!!! Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.

28) RE: Babysitter or Nanny Wanted, M-F (D.C.)
Hello are you aware you aren't even paying minimum wage so you cannot take taxes out of the pay to begin with. Let say you are only going to have a nanny work 38.45 hours which will be rounded to 39 hours. 250/39 is 6.41. Minimum wage is now 7.25 a hour. I highly doubt you will find someone willing to work as a nanny for you for less than 300 a week.
