Touch what?


We have more or less narrowed down who the lucky babysitter will be, however I still found the need to look for more tonight… Hmmm. The more and more I saw caregivers who have their own children in their home while looking after my precious, the more freaked out I got. I’m convinced all kids, and not naively, want to touch each others genitals. I’ve decided that my son is the only one who gets to touch his penis, not some 9 year old girl, or even a sweet, innocent 1 year old girl. I know this is a very taboo topic, and I’m making lighthearted jokes about it, but make no mistake, I’m not fucking joking around here. It terrifies me to leave my child with some stranger, and their weird kid. Most people ask for a criminal reference check before leaving their child with someone, but is there one for their 5 year old? Ummm nope. So needless to say, I’m just not ready to leave baby sirs with a caregiver and their pervy little child.
Which babysitter did we pick? Well, unbeknownst to her yet, we chose the 16 year old, and no, not for Tim to “drive home”. I’m still looking at other options before we let her know, because I’m too nervous still to have someone else look after my kid. Once again, something other parents didn’t tell me, when do you know it’s the right time and the right person for your kid and you?
