Am I overreacting about this situation with my babysitter?

Yesterday we all generally got off at the same time, so the husband knew we were shortly arriving at the house after him. So we got to our babysitter’s house, and our littles (3 & 1) were sleeping in the living room. A baby gate was up at the kitchen, which also leads to the bathroom and the master bedroom. So get there, and no one is to be seen. The front door completely open, and they didn’t know we were there. We knocked, practically beat, the front door multiple times because we didn’t want to just barge into their house. We waited and waited and knocked more. Finally, I text and let her know we were there. About 3 minutes later, she comes running frantically from the backroom, hair frazzled and pulling herself together… It turns out they were back there doing the do… I’m unsure how I feel about this, and I’m a little anxious now. For one, our kids are extremely quiet and mischievous, she’s even told us how quiet they are and how they’ve been up, and she not know. And no, I’m not saying they can’t sleep alone, or she needs to be eyes glued the whole time they’re asleep but at the same time around to check and make sure things are still good and all like cleaning or something but the occasional checking on them. They could’ve gotten into anything in the living room which included a wax warmer and also there were stairs to upstairs that were not blocked off as well as the 3-year-old knows how to open doors and the front door was right there. Second not trying to be “that person” but we were getting them in less than 10 minutes after the husband got home they honestly couldn’t have waited? I feel like having sex while you’re supposed to be babysitting is inappropriate even if they were asleep. If they couldn’t hear us beating on the door they wouldn’t have heard one of the boys up or into something…

I probably would find a new babysitter. I don’t think I would want to risk them caring for my small children.

Nope!! Time for a new babysitter

I agree you need to find a new babysitter those babies could have gotten hurt or worse

Yikes!! That would not be okay to me at all. :flushed:

That’s a no go. She is technically working and should act as such.

Look elsewhere. If your paying her to do a job than she should be doing that job not doing personal things with your kids there

I would not be cool with that at allllll

I fired a teenager, spoke with her mother, and didn’t pay her for this. Business and pleasure do not mix, especially with children involved.

I feel like if your babysitting you are working and you can’t do that at any other job so no it’s not acceptable
