Leave By the Book
Instead of scrawling instructions on the kitchen
notepad every time you hire a sitter, jot them down
once and for all in A Parent’s Journal for
the Babysitter. It’s divided into tabbed
sections—categories range from food to
activities—where you write in your dos and
don’ts. Comes with a separate pad for contact
information and schedules ($27).
