How much do I charge to watch an 18 month old for 6 days/nights?

I'm a work-at-home mom with a 7 year old and a 4 year old. I'm a taxi service to my kids and husband, as we have 1 car and the schools have no bussing. A friend wants me to watch her 18month old for 6 days/nights. How much do I charge?

  • well i pay 175 every 2 weeks for a government daycare for a 2 1/2 month old... If that helps the decision any.

  • You mean 6 days and nights straight? And are you providing meals and snacks?

  • no less than $50,000 and a huge bottle of Zanax! LOL.... check around the daycares and see how much they charge, that would give you some kind of idea.
