I have been a stay at home mom for almost 8 years now... My youngest is about to start kindergarten, and the plan was always for me to get a part time job or go back to school once they were both at school ( my husband makes good money, but i always thought it would be nice have my own spending money, or to go to school ( beautician )... But of course now I am worried about doing that... I dont want to be out of town everyday ( we live in a small town so either way I will have to work/school in another town) ...and I honestly feel like I am a stay at home mom / housekeeper - I love it... I love cleaning and cooking and doing little things with the kids, I love the idea of being around in case anyone needs me ... My grandparents are also in not so great shape and I do stuff for them on a daily basis.
So when my brother asked me about taking care of my 2 year old neice and soon to be born nephew towards the end of summer when my SIL goes to work ( she is somewhat a stay at home mom right now) ...
I told him I would like that ... I also told him i could go to their house during the day and do the cleaning ( something we talked about before because neither of them clean -_- ) ....
I have done this a few times before - I would watch my neice, clean their house and even have their supper ready ...
BUT the problem is the money... I sort of feel guilty for taking money from them ( and some other people in the family think it is wrong too - I guess everyone just think that if its family you do it for free) .. but the thing is they blow money on so much stuff so I know they could pay me like $100 / month ... for everything I would do I do not think that is alot ? I mean it would be 4-5 days a week, morning until evening ...
Is that alot to ask? is it wrong for family to get paid? If i am not the one doing it they will be bringing the kids between me and SIL's dad ( probably for free) , but they wouldnt get their house cleaned and I think it would be a hassle ( because if I am not going to keep them on a regular basis I will be looking for a job or soemthing ) ....
