Can you stay in the kids room for that one night?
Me 32, He 35, DS 14, DD 2
Nope, wouldn't have a stranger stay, especially since having kids.
I was so mad a few years ago (pre kids) when we had DHs good mate stay overnight I told him no bringing any girls home, but he did it anyway. I don't like the thought of someone in my house who I don't know.
Can you borrow a couple of baby monitors for the night? That way you won't need to sleep in their room but you would certainly hear if someone was going in to the room.
nope. no chance.
Hell no!!! Totes different story if you trusted your friend completely and there judge of character...but actually even then for me it would be a stretch. I don't think it's being over protective. Just think about the amount of parents that think "if only I hadn't cared about being paranoid" after bad things happened.
After reading all the info, no. I don't trust strangers who would be that close to my kids whilst I was so far away.
