My wife and I are always looking for a dependable babysitter. We're in this childcare thing alone. Not to sound needy but, we have no grandparents, brothers, sisters or any family at all in the Utica area. When we do find a sitter, she's off to college within a few months. It can be a very taxing job especially when we remember that the life of our child will be in the hands of a 'stranger' when we are away. You have heard news of children mistreated by babysitters from time to time and we don't want that. So far we've been fortunate.
