.... What?!

1) No Salary Live-In Nanny - Years of Childcare Experience and References (Orlando)
I have over 9 years of experience with all ages infants to teenagers with references to prove it that I can forward through email right away. For the family I helped recently, it included 4 at home children - a 5 year old girl, 8 year old boy, 10 year old girl and 11 year old boy), I provided before and after school care, occasional weekend days and all night care, including making meals, making school lunches, provided assistance getting baths ready and then tucked into bed at night, washed and picked out clothes for school and play, helped with homework, played games and other fun activities (including horsey back rides for the youngest two! LOL), supervised when swimming, provided special care when sick including giving of proper medication, provided house cleaning and pet care, and much more! I'm dependable, honest, responsible, kind hearted and attentive. Be at ease and hire me with NO fees or pay. My real reward in pampering you and yours like Nanny 911 is just seeing happy faces that result from the caring contribution I give! Experienced stay at home caregiver will pamper you and your family FREE! Yes REALLY! Why give a nanny room and board AND PAY MONEY too? Trust me, your kids WILL be happy with me there! YOU will SO appreciate what I do for YOU! Whenever I did this Mr Mom before the families loved me! I am very family oriented and know how precious children are. I will treat your children like I would treat my own. Think of me as Nanny 911 who SO cares about the kids and gives them such caring, respect, nurturing and attention they (and you) don't want me to leave - and I don't leave. (-; I'm dependable, honest, responsible. Safety is of utmost importance! Children's CPR COURSE completion! I JUST saved a life a few months ago when a child in the pool became exhausted and couldn't swim to the side! I do much more for your family! I create activities in a safe environment for all ages, and they all relate to me because I'm patient, caring, fun-loving, attentive to their needs, and very compassionate. I am a good listener and problem solver. Even teens and preteens talk to me {{-; I also am fun-loving and like ALL the rides at Disney World and video games with the kids (as parents allow) I have educational games too like Madagascar and Shrek multiple choice learning games. I am a clean living trustworthy Christian man, caucasion 40+ that has lived happily with all ages. I get along well with everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, etc. I'm not one of those heavy drinker types, don't smoke and NEVER use drugs or profanity of any kind! There will be no expectations from me or need for any money to be exchanged between us - I just need a room where I can go sleep at night and call my own. You share your meals with me (I can cook for you) Very SMALL stipend may be asked for depending on what you provide and how much housework you would like me to do in addition to childcare duties. I am a very experienced, trustworthy jack of all trades. I do house cleaning, laundry, dishes, cook, yard work, painting, fixup, install electronics and computer programs, help with homework and provide security for your family if you need. Safety is of utmost importance. I am experienced at computer research for assignments, essays, etc. I can be just about anything you want me to be for you except chauffer. I don't drive, and if you could help move me and my bedroom things to wherever you are that would be appreciated as your first contribution. I offer companionship for people & pets. Looking for permanent family life to avoid the sadness that comes from kids getting attached and then having to deal with separation. My more recent families before my latest family included 3 children, 1 year old boy, 7 year old girl and 12 year old girl ( for 2 years) and 3 children, 6 year old girl, 8 year old boy and 16 year old girl (for 3 years) Ages were at time of my arrival. References forwarded from THEM to me are available to forward through email to you when you write and tell me your home situation and your vision of what would make this work for you and our mutual agreement that we have probable compatibility.

5) I Need a TOUGH Babysitter (Garland)
OK, BEFORE the hate mail begins and the posting against me on Craigslist, I am NOT a mean / bad mom. Here is the situation. We are a blended family. We have decided that one night a week, we are going to have a date night without our children. We are trying to keep our relationship with each other strong, and devote as much attention to each other as we do to our children (our children come first, but in order to have a healthy family, we have to have a healthy relationship). Here is the problem, I have been a single mom since before my daughter was born. He divorced his daughters mom 2 years ago. The children have nothing against either of us as people (we already explored that), they just don't want he and I to be together. See, my children think life is prefect when it is just me and them, because then they get ALL my affection. His thinks that if he and I break up, mom and dad will get remarried and their lives will be what it was 2 years ago. So, they try VERY hard to drive the babysitters away so that he and I cannot have a night alone. Now, here is where I am going to sound like I am contradicting myself. The kids really are great kids. But, the babysitters we have hired tend to allow the children to get their way. So... here we are! We are looking for someone who will NOT let the children run the household while we are gone. We want you to be strict with them (do not spank them, cuss at them or yell at them). We want them to be put in bed at 8:00 and not coddled to sleep with TV. Maybe someone who is older, because it seems it is the younger babysitters that the kids walk all over. Make them eat their dinner, pick up after themselves, do not allow video games or computer games, make them play outside or play board games. If you think you can handle this, PLEASE email me with your rates, experience, and PLEASE have your experience inlcude any problems you have been able to overcome with children.

8) 1 Month Free Childcare in exchange for move (Garland)
OK, here is the deal... I am moving. I have NO motivation to even get started on packing! I need someone that is willing to come help me organize and pack my entire home and move me, also to help me unpack most of my belongings. In exchange, I will give you $250 off of childcare rates (looking for full-time care, part time care, drop in care, for a night out, just need a break, whatever... I run a registered childcare and have openings). I plan on renting a truck, if you can get a few guys to load and unload everything (including heavy items - furniture, washer/dryer, fridge, dressers, fish tank, etc), I will give you a $600 childcare credit. It is worth more then I would pay in cash, but I do not have the cash. Otherwise, I would hire someone to do it. Anyways, if you are interested, please email me. I need to get started ASAP!

16) Babysitter/Nanny needed (Allen)
My husband and I both work from home and, while she's really good about it most of the time, I can't help feeling bad for the amount of time Christina has to entertain herself because we're both busy. And it's going to get worse as we get more work.... Ideally, we would like somebody to come to our house from 10-2, two or three days a week. Our ideal schedule would be alternating weekly: MWF one week, T Th Sat the following week—but we're fairly flexible. We'll still be here, but would like this person to play with Christina, take her for walks, and feed her. We'd probably still do diapers and lay her down for her nap, at least in the beginning. (Hopefully, she'll like this person well enough that she'll be comfortable with them handling these things occasionally, eventually.) We would like this to be a long-term commitment. Christina isn't used to being around a lot of people, so it can take her some time to warm up to someone new, and I'd like to not have her get attached to somebody and then have them disappear from her life and have to do it again with somebody else. We were thinking of splitting this between two people (if we can find two!!), so 1) we'll have a backup and 2) she'll start getting used to more people.... The details: - We're a pet and smoke-free home, and we need a non-smoking babysitter. - Must speak clear English, without a heavy accent. - Christina naps for 45min-1.5 hours every day, starting around 10:30-11, so you would have some free time to eat, read, or whatever.... - We have a small house, but we do have a nice-sized backyard, and the library is within walking distance. - We would prefer somebody who would not need to bring a child along, but would make an exception for the right person. - We can't pay a lot to start but, as business increases we'll be able to pay more. (We're hoping to start out paying $200/month) - We're in Allen, just off Central/McDermott Please let me know if you are interested, and please pass this on to anyone you know who MIGHT be interested—we started interviewing today, and want to be sure we have the right person for the job. You can email or call me: carole@**** 214-227-**** (home) 214-709-**** (cell) Thanks for looking!

These ads are so disturbing! The first one is just creepy-sounds like a homeless man wanting a place to live. And a few wanted someone for that very day-who leaves an infant (or any child) with a total stranger you know nothing about and haven't had time to even pretend to check on? And the one about the person having surgery is so scary. That child could so easily be kidnapped it's not even funny. Who asks a total stranger to just take their child for a few days while they are having surgery? I think CPS needs to monitor Craigslist!!

Sorry, but I have 2 kids that I don't trust anyone with-I can't even imagine what some of these people are willing to do for a babysitter.
