1) Demon child and Anti-Christ ISO Mary Poppins (Illinois)
We are in search of a hearty woman who is a glutton for punishment. We have not one, but two boys who are full of action to leave you shuddering all night. To top of this wonderful entourage, we introduce, the teenager! Yes, the spawn whom will change clothes, hair, make up, boyfriends, best friends, and moods every hour on the hour. You must be willing to come to our abode and watch our spawns. You must have a car, license, excellent driving record, for you must have a way to escape if and when necessary. If you are really self loathing, we are considering a live in position also.
Spawn #1 is about 9 human years old. He will leave his lair by 8 to go scare and harrass the neighborhood teachers and kids. He will return to the lair just after 3. He will by this time be hungry and ready to devour you as soon as he walks in the door. He will feign illness to prevent from doing the work his teachers beg him to do only after they feel as if they may live after encountering him.
Spawn #2 is about 3 human years old and will gross you out as he urinates on himself only AFTER you have asked him 1000 times if he needs to go potty. This spawn will change his eating and sleeping habits hourly. He may have liked Pop Tarts yesterday morning, but they are human waste today. Spawn #2 OWNS everything. He owns the house, the cars, the toys, the televisions, me, and he will own you too. This one doesn't like to share but you must hold your ground and teach him. We will pray for your soul as you attempt this feat.
Spawn #3 doesn't really need to be watched much. This spawn is 13 human years old and you just have to let her know she has homework and check it when she is done. This spawn hates Math and struggles with it, so you must be able to do 7th grade Math!!! You will NOT do it for her, but you will help her so that she may be able to count her victims correctly.
These Spawns also have a minion. The minion barks when people come to the door to warn off intruders. The minion is medium sized and very lovable. I believe the minion may be our only hope at survival.
I am a keeper of these Spawns. In us, you will find fearing, but loyal and loving parents who want the best for our little demons. They are not perfect but we love them dearly. We hope that even you can look beyond their red eyes, horns, and tails, and learn to love them too!

2) Babysitter Survivor! Do you have what it takes? (Chicago)
Have you ever wanted to play Survivor? Well, here is your chance. If you are up to the challenge, come to the island and test your skill at Babysitter Survivor! Do you have what it takes to Outwit, Outplay, and Outlast a six year old little boy? Will you form and alliance with his three year old brother? Are you sure that is a smart move, or will the mother-babysitter alliance prove to be stronger? Challenges? Oh yes, there will be severe challenges during every episode; at least one and sometimes many many more! What fun! Will you be hungry? Yes! Will you be tired? Hell yes! But, at least the water supply has been found and it is clean. Will you need mops, towels, and possibly the shirt off you back to sop it all up? Possibly. If you think you can wrangle with 'YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!' and 'YOU'RE NOT MY MOTHER!' and many more old favorites, come and give the game a try. Three babysitters before you have fallen, will you be the one to survive?
Here's the data:
Location: West Loop
Hours: VERY PART TIME! 4-8 hours per week; mid-mornings to early afternoon preferred. Tuesdays/Thursdays are preferred; never Wednesdays, that's when Grandma gives it a shot.
Also occasional nights and weekends.
Pay: It is pretty good.
Not for the faint of heart, easily intimidated, or general sweethearts. SOFTIES NEED NOT APPLY!
If you think you have what it takes, please get a message to me immediately. I am currently on exile island and I need the support.

9) ISO Part Time OCD cleaner, organizer, personal assistant, babysitter (PA)
Ok the OCD part was a bit of a joke, but if you are a little OBSESSIVE about keeping things clean and spotless that wouldn't be such a bad thing.

I would say 50% of your job will be cleaning/organizing my house (its very clean now, no scary mess to walk into) The other hours could include everything from babysitting (I have 1 19 month old daughter), to errand running, to helping me plan/decorate for parties, maybe putting away laundry, assisting me in the kitchen ect. No lazy people please. Looking for an upbeat, can do personality. Looking for someone who learns quickly and works efficiently. I am VERY flexible and easy going, but i have high expectations. Please write me back if you think this sounds like you. Someone local would be great, please have your own transportation.

*Several responses from angry CL readers:
12) RE: Need Babysitter in Crown Point (Chicago)
It's this posting some kind of a joke . $120 for full week ,10 hours a day ,so that's $2.40/hr.
do you know what's the minimum hourly pay is? If you can't afford babysitter you should be just staying at home mom. Working for you people will be just a waste of time

13) RE: Need Babysitter in Crown Point (Chicago)
AMEN TO THAT!!!! Either don't work and stay home or you shouldn't have had kids if you wanted to continue working!!! Everyone wants a FREE ride when it comes to childcare!!!! The parents want to work and make all the money but don't want to dish anything out to the people that are actually caring for their children!! So in other words they are saying their children aren't worth much!!! Why don't the people who only want to pay pebbles respond to this...........oh thats right, because its the hard TRUTH!!!!! And we all know the truth can be hard to hear!!McDonalds pays more than these parents want to and that is SAD!!!

14) RE: Once again dear Babysitter needed in CP (Chicago)
How many times are you going to try to post your pathetic ad on craigslist before you realize that NO ONE (no not even that 18 year old girl down the street) is going to watch a infant or any age child for that matter for under 3 bucks an hour. That rate is insulting and should you find somone willing to accept I would be more than a little worried for your little one. After all the good childcare givers with skill and experience would never ever consider you someone who would respect them enough to be a potential employer.
Original URL: http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/kid/1349566852.html
15) RE: I must agree! (CP/Chicago)
I am along with the many other posters about childcare rates!! Our children are supposed to mean more to us than those fancy cars we drive, fancy vacations & expensive purses and manicures!! I've seen it way too many times! Mother's who don't want to be inconvenienced by their children! Childcare is not the place in your budget to be skimpy on! Just like anything else in this world, you get what you pay for!! I am a stay at home mom because...I would rather give up on some of the luxeries in order to raise my babies right! I understand that some women don't have a choice but to work, but atleast respect your caregiver!!! There are many women in this world who can & will provide wonderful care for YOUR children, but expecting them to do it for under $2/hr is an insult!!! Think about that as you are soaking your feet during your next pedicure!!
