I’m not sure if this is an LA thing, or just something that rich people do, but lately I’ve started to hear about more and more of these types of scenarios. A celebrity (or any wealthy person) will call over a babysitter to take care of the kids…..while they are home!
In the old days it used to be, “Come on over for a few hours and watch my kids. Me and my husband are going out to dinner and a movie.” Now, it’s more like, “Come on over for a few hours, me and my husband will be chillin’ in the other room.”
I’m just not sure how to feel about all this. I just feel like as a parent (I know everything about parenting btw), if I was in the same place as my young child, I’d constantly be concerned about them, and feel the need check up on them periodically. On the other hand, if I was out of the house, and the kid is with a babysitter I trust, “out of sight, out of mind” comes into play and one might has well have a good time.
