17 Babysitters Who Definitely Deserve A Raise

By Aimee Lutkinnnn

While the parents are away, the kids will play — and potentially drive their babysitters to the brink of madness. I always refused to go to sleep until my parents came home when I was a kid, and you know what? I was letting my sitter off easy.

So, what do sitters do to get through the long hours until the proper authority figure shows up? They could just make snacks, put on a black-and-white movie no one likes, or give them "extra credit" math homework to keep them quiet.

But instead, they get creative, and for that (as well as so much more), they definitely deserve a raise.

For example, they sometimes take the kids they're watching to an epic fantasy world. 

When a friend asked this babysitter how the gig was going, she responded, "Well, she insisted that I was a mermaid because of my hair and I had this thing in my closet."

One mermaid tail, I get. But I'm really struck by the baby-sized mermaid tail costume she somehow found lying around as well.
