Let’s talk about date nights, my friends! You need them. I need them. Our partners need them. We all need them! It’s good for everyone, even our littles! I always feel refreshed and ready to get back to my little guy after a few hours out with my honey. It’s SO healthy! K, do we all agree that date nights are necessary? If not, email me and we’ll chat. ;)

Sittercity has recently launched Sitterati, a free iPhone app that allows you to create upcoming jobs for when you need a sitter, alert all of your sitters at once of each job, and pay them directly when they’re done, making dealing with finding a sitter a breeze and date nights become possible again.

Sittercity helps parents find experienced babysitters and nannies in any area. And with features like detailed profiles, background checks, references and reviews, the process is safe and easy. But even if you already have a sitter or several who you use, this new Sitterati app might help make your life just a bit easier.

A few reasons why it might help you:

  • The app helps keep sitters organized in one handy place
  • You can create a job and send to all your sitters at once, rather than sending multiple text messages
  • It’s easy to pay right from the app, rather than going to the ATM and getting cash

How it works:

  • Just text your sitters to invite them to join if you already have a sitter or sitters you use
  • Upload your credit card to pay sitters and pay them at the end of each job
  • Post a job to all of your sitters at once
  • Get confirmation from the first sitter to respond

Somehow, I think this could really help parents to get into a strong date night routine! What do you think?

p.s. I can’t believe my little bald baby is going to be two next week. Where does the time go?
