Really nice, but can't commit

You may have better luck than we did, but wanted to warn people so they didn't end up in the same situation as we did (stuck).

Short story: Erika was supposed to become our babysitter 2x/week and at the last minute (that first morning), sent a text that said "sorry, can't help you."

Long story: We met Erika, and she was lovely. Interacted well with our 5-yr-old daughter, and wasn't afraid of our large dog. We were very excited to get her to start sitting the next week and texted back and forth about finalizing details.

The day before Erika was supposed to start babysitting she was not responding to emails or texts. Finally at about 5 she said she couldn't help us out, and that she was sorry but she had work commitments.

I asked if that meant she couldn't help at all or just that day of the week. She responded promptly saying that other days were fine. So we agreed to change the days and that she would get the keys the day before she was to start.

The night before, at 10pm, she had not done so nor contacted us nor responded to our texts. The next morning I awoke to a text saying "sorry, won't be able to help out. Apologize for it being last minute."

Needless to say, I didn't offer her another chance.

She may very well be the excellent sitter that we believed her to be, but we're not willing to rely on her as she has proven not to be reliable.
