Babysitting is aimed at babies, toddlers and young children (10 and

activities. Our babysitters all have extensive experience
and are bonded in the state of Texas. Please note our closing times
(5pm for dinner and 11pm for the night) and take them into
account as you make Worldcon plans.
If you plan to use Babysitting, it would really help us
out if you drop us some
E-mail and let us know the age(s)
of your child(ren), and, very roughly, what hours you expect
to use Babysitting.
