Even though husband and I have three (yes THREE) sets of parents in the vicinity, none of them are great choices for babysitting.

-Set #1 - 70 yrs old, back problems, get tired easily
-Set #2 - have rigid schedules, go to bed and wake up early, do not want to come to our house to babysit can sleep in his own crib, and don't really listen to our instructions
-Set #3 - lots of current drama for them. (i.e., possible divorce)

Husband and I have siblings but they all live out of state. I am a SAHM so we've never had a nanny or babysitter (other than our parents at times)...

Anyone in a similar boat? Did you ever just bite the bullet and call a babysitter from one of those sites so that you could have a night out?
