Babysitting is something that requires a lot of skill.
You need to not only know how to keep the children entertained, you also need to catch on to their cunning tricks.
Sometimes, the children will be wonderful little angels and you won't have a problem.
Other times though, things won't be so simple.
One Mum knew that her babysitter was going to be in for a wild ride, so to prepare her for what was to come, she left them a note about what to expect.
Twitter user @malikbrazile is dating the babysitter in question and when he was shown the list, he just knew he had to share it because it's so damn accurate!

"1. I encourage the kids to watch as much TV as possible, so they will leave me the hell alone. Feel free to do the same.
"2. Don't waste your valuable time cooking or providing healthy snacks. Just give them the pizza and snacks I leave.
"3. They do still breastfeed on demand. Just download a video on YouTube. It's not hard or I would not do it.
"4. Do not take any kittens/candy/puppies from David, or take a ride in his van.
"5. If any of my neighbours come to the doors, treat them like Jehovah's Witnesses. Don't lend them any eggs/milk/cigarettes. They know where the store is. And no, you don't want to babysit for them.
"6. Let the kids have as much sugar as they want, as long as they will go away. They take pills to sleep anyway.
"7. If you have any boys over, just make sure they have an uncle/dad/brother/friend that I can call later.
"8. Don't answer the house phone unless you feel like paying bills.
"9. If you look through my drawers, please throw away any overdue bills and gum wrappers.
"10. Do not believe ANYTHING the kids tell you."
This Mum is hilarious!
Hopefully, the night still went well...
