Dear Babysitter,

I love my children dearly, but I really need a break. It's so hard to trust someone else with these amazing people, but my sanity is at stake. So please, please watch over them. If they are naughty put them in the corner. It's ok if they watch TV. As long as they are safe, I don't care if they are brain dead from too much TV. The little one cries a lot, so give her lots of hugs. If they eat all the candy in the house, they'll survive, just don't let one choke. I would like it if they went to bed on time, but if they don't, that's ok too. Rules are important, but while you are here, it's ok if we bend them a little. Hopefully, I will return renewed and refreshed and able to face it all, all over again. But in the meantime, take care of my children. They are my heart and my life and I would die a million times for each and every one of them.

The mom
