Sitter Mixer!

A week from tonight there is a very innovative, fun party going on at the Kiddie Kollege Earlly Learning Center in Hyannis. It is a sitter mixer. OK, OK, I can hear you all saying, "A what?". A sitter mixer is a convienent way for babysitters to find families and families to find babysitters. Where was this when my girls were little? Plus this special mom's night out includes SWAG! That's right, you get to go home with a bag of goodies and a list of potential babysitters that you have actually already met! Win win!

You’ve never had so much fun searching for a babysitter!
Sitter Mixer is coming to the Cape! 
Meryl's Music and Arts and Michelle LaRowe, the Cape Cod Baby Planner are pleased to be co-sponsoring a new event to help moms and babysitters find each other in a fun and convenient way!  The Sitter Mixer will be held on Thursday, March 24th from 7 pm - 9 pm at Kiddie Kollege Early Learning Center in Hyannis. The atmosphere at a Sitter Mixer is part-cocktail-party, part-speed-dating, part-job-fair, and all fun!  In one night you will be able to meet and interview multiple, qualified sitters from your local area and walk away with your very own Sitter Match Book with the complete resumes, references and contact information for sitters specifically matched to your family’s individual needs.  Imagine having a notebook full of awesome sitters ready and waiting to care for your children– it’s every mom’s dream!  But the fun doesn’t end there…  In addition to mingling with amazing babysitters, you will enjoy a relaxing night of “retail therapy” with our fantastic “Sitter Mixer Boutique” of fabulous, local vendors showcasing mom-owned businesses from all over the Cape.  Get your thrills winning raffle prizes, and walk away with a terrific swag bag chock-full of freebies, coupons, and samples.  Registration is $39 for moms, $5 for sitters.

Love this idea! My boys are too big now, but Jared did the Red Cross babysitting class & got his certificate last year. I will see if he is interested in going! I remember how hard it was to find a boy "kid-sitter" when they were younger........he is great with kids & I'm sure he could drum up some business. Just not sure he needs to go"all the way to Hyannis" to do it. Thanks for passing along, Sue!
