Anyone who has children understands how difficult it can be to get anything accomplished, let alone trying to pack and move. So what do you do when it is moving day and you have the little ones in tow? Well as much as we love our children it is time to hire a babysitter so you can get things done without having to worry about entertaining your little one(s). Let’s discuss the benefits of hiring a babysitter when your moving day arrives.
Get More Accomplished
When hiring a babysitter for your moving day you will get much more accomplished without your little one(s) at your feet. You will be able to pack and move your boxes without having to worry about where your children are, what are they getting into and are they ok? It would also be advantageous to hire a babysitter a few times during the initial packing and after the move. This way you can get a large portion of your packing and un-packing complete, rather than having to wait until your children are sleeping to try and get things accomplished. Lastly it gives you the ability to organize your move and plan for the big day without any distractions.
No Kids Means You Can Get Things Done
For those of us that have children, we understand the amount of work and attention children need. Dealing with the many needs and wants of your children means you get nothing accomplished. You are constantly interrupted from morning to night. If you have children that are infants, they constantly need to be fed, changed, carried, etc….If you have older children they will want to play, they will be hungry, they will get you’re your boxes or they will have a thousand questions about what you are doing. We all love our children, but during a stressful move you need to stay focused on the task at hand. Every disruption takes you away from the packing or moving process.
Change of Plans
No move ever goes to plan so always plan for the worst. Even if you hire the best Jacksonville moving company things can go off plan. You may experience bad weather during your move, significant traffic to your new home, etc…if your children are present they won’t understand patience and will make sure you lose yours. It is always smart to plan for extended babysitting hours when possible as your plans can and typically do change during a move.
Adjust to Other People
If you don’t have family or friends you can rely on to watch your children, it is time to take the leap and get a referral from a friend. You will want your children to get used to other caregivers other than yourself. If you want an adult-only night out you will eventually employ someone to watch your children. Use this as an opportunity to test the waters and see how your children do. This will allow them to learn how to adjust and interact with other people who are not their parents.
