I keep a typed (in bold colors), laminated list on my desk. The paper is entitled Babysitter Information, and on it is every phone number imaginable for any sitters who come to our house. It includes our home number, both our cell phone numbers and Hubs’ office number. It contains our home address (at the very top, to give to a 9-1-1 operator, *shudder*), and the phone numbers of all our neighbors and nearby friends, as well as grandparents (none of whom live in our city). That way, when I’m leaving in a hurry (which I always am whenever I hire a sitter, for some reason), I don’t have to write it all out each time. I feel confident knowing our sitter has access to so many numbers, should she need them (which, incidentally, she never has).
