WE ALL want to make sure our kids are in the best hands when we aren't around.
But one mum of four has left the internet in hysterics over her extensive list of requirements she wants form a nanny – despite only paying them £164 a week.
The mum put out a call-out on Facebook hoping someone would bite at the chance to work for her.
Instead, she was slammed in the comments for her unrealistic expectations.
The post, uploaded by 'Tammy' advertised for a babysitter for her four children 'aged two, three, five and seven' starting 'ASAP' from noon to 6pm every week day and the occasional weekend.
As if looking after four children wasn't hard enough, the mum had a huge list of requirements she wanted the babysitter to excel in.

She also wanted a full background check and to have a drug test be conducted.
To top it off, she was only willing to pay the lucky employee £164 ($200) a week and wanted them to have their own transport to get to and from her house as well as run the mum's errands for her.
People who spotted the job advert were baffled and couldn't believe the mum's checklist.
Many claimed it would be an impossible role to fill while others were horrified by the measly pay on offer.
One person wrote: "Not even Mary Poppins fits this list, ridiculous."
Another commented: "I hope this is some kind of joke – the audacity is unbelievable."
"I can’t wait to use my masters degree to babysit four kids for $200 a week!!!! Said no one ever," penned a third.
Meanwhile a fourth said: "I think she she missed a Zero, or two, on the pay rate…"
"Personally she doesn't meet quarter of the requirements,” claimed a fifth.

Someone else added: "I’m gonna give her the benefit of the doubt… her husband told her she needed to go back to work, and she said she would as soon as she found a decent babysitter. So she ran this ridiculous ad in hopes to never actually find a babysitter."
