Going out for the night or anywhere without kids can involve a lot of planning and preparation. No matter how much we try, we always seem to be running late, too. So it is comforting to know that the most important information is always ready.
Years ago I created an information sheet that hangs near our phone in the kitchen. It has phone numbers and other emergency information the babysitter might need. It hangs on a hook in a plastic sheet protector.
I have included a blank version of mine below. Just fill in your own information as applicable (in the red areas). If you are a single parent, please adapt it to fit your needs as well.
* NOTE: If you do not have kids, it is still not a bad idea to have such a form hanging up by your phone, just in case of an emergency. Fill in your own information for the children’s names, birthdates, and blood types. Fill in your own doctor’s information as well.
Hope this form is helpful!
