Which Celeb Mom Would You Let Babysit Your Kids? Real Moms Weigh In!

Would you trust Victoria Beckham to babysit for your kids?

There are days when I think I’d let just about anyone babysit my boys, just to get a break. But, the reality is that I’m very picky about who watches them. In my old neighborhood, the moms’ group I was in would trade babysitting days so we could each have some kid-free time.

It was easy to trust fellow moms. But, would you trust a celeb mom? I asked mom bloggers on twitter. There were a few responses like these: “I can think of a bunch I’d pay NOT to watch my kids” or “I wouldn’t let most watch my house plants.”

Several celeb moms came up repeatedly and the qualities moms were looking for were down-to-earth and a mom who actually does things with her kids. I was thinking I’d ask the Beckhams to watch my boys because they are used to a house full of boys and I’d get to look at David Beckham, but since they just had their newborn, I guess I’ll pick someone else.

Take a look at which celeb moms are considered fabulous babysitter material:
