Re: “Bianca Knows Best ... And Helps a Cool Mom

Dear Cool Mom,
My husband and I have taken our daughter (now 8) out quite often too. We have a couple of rules we follow when we do. First we determine whether the event, or the crowd is really appropriate. Sometimes people say "bring the kids" and they really shouldn't have! Then, we ask the host or the organizer if the event is "kid-friendly" or "adults-only". We'll only take her if we get the ok. We also have a short list of friends that we will never her take her to hang with, especially after 7. We love them, but they don't have kids and don't always act appropriately.
It can be hard finding a babysitter in this town! We sometimes trade off nights with other parents, offering a sleep over with the understanding that it will be reciprocated. If you can't find a friend or parent to help out, I would highly recommend calling Rhodes College babysitting service. They are excellent, but you will need to make arrangements at least a few days in advance of the event. The babysitters are not often available at the last minute. Besides, the closer you get to the weekend, the harder it is to find someone.
Best of luck!
Another Memphis Mom
