The Parents I Babysit For Were So Late Getting Home That I Had To Call My Own Mother To Come Watch Their Kids

Katrina babysits for a family during the day sometimes. Recently she agreed to babysit on a day where she also had a dentist appointment. The parents were so late coming home that Katrina was worried she would miss her appointment. They weren’t responding to texts or calls, so she called her mother to come over and watch the kids so she could go to the dentist. When the parents came home and found a stranger with their kids they were angry and they fired her. But Katrina only called her mother because the parents were so late. Were they right to fire Katrina, or did she do the right thing by calling her mother?

Here’s Katrina’s E-mail. Would You Let Her Babysit For Your Kids?

Dear Jonathan And Ayla,



I’ve been babysitting for a woman on my block for the past 6 months. Nothing major just usually watching the kids for a bit after school until she comes home. Well the other day I picked the kids up from school and took them home, made them a snack and played with them. Usually the mom is home around 5pm but today she was late. I texted her around 5:10 but she didn’t answer. The thing was I had a dentist appointment at 545. I told the mom about that when she asked me to babysit and she said it wouldn’t be a problem. Well at 5:30 with still no answer from her I was freaking out. I couldn’t miss the dentist appointment otherwise I wouldn’t be able to get in for another month at least. So I had mom who was home (again same block) come over and watch the kids until their mom came home. My mom had no problem with it.

So she came home and there was my mom in their house watching her kids. My mom explained what happened and their mom seemed fine with it, but then later texted me that she was very angry at me for leaving her kids with a “strange” woman. I got defensive, because that’s my mom, and she said “Well I won’t be using your services anymore, consider yourself fired.”
I’m really upset because I don’t feel like I did anything wrong. It’s not my fault she wasn’t answering her texts and it’s not like I left them with a drug addict or even like a man or something.

  • There Are Certainly Worse People You Could FInd Your Baby With

    Chelsea had a backyard family party and a friend’s 8 year old daughter decided to “babysit” her baby. But the 8 year old got so possessive of the baby that she wouldn’t let anyone else hold or play with her. So Chelsea had to say something to her and the girl threw a fit. But the girl’s mother doesn’t see anything wrong with what happened and thinks she shouldn’t have said anything.

  • Sometimes Family Isn't Even Willing To Help

    Nikki’s husband’s little sister charged them $250 to babysit her child even though she’s over the house all the time. She also borrows Nikki’s old books for college, so now Nikki is charging her $300 for the book she needs. Is she being petty or justified? How would you feel if a relative charged you to babysit your child?

  • The Wrong Babysitter Might Even Give Your Kid...... CARBS!

    Cassidy and her husband have agreed that they don’t want their children eating sugar or carbs so that they grow to love vegetables. She recently found out that her mother-in-law has been giving her daughter mac and cheese when she babysits. So Cassidy told her that she is no longer allowed to watch the kids unsupervised. Her husband is not ok with this and has now started giving the kids carbs to spite her. But she knows she’s right and she should be able to decide what food her children are eating
