How much would you pay a babysitter for 14 hours, all in one day, for 2 kids ages 3 and 5? Both kids are potty trained, but she will have to feed them lunch and dinner.
My husband and I want to take my stepson out for his birthday, and no family is available to watch our two little ones. I have never paid a sitter before, so I have no idea what a fair amount might be. I asked her what she wanted to get paid, and she said whatever I think is fair. Help me out ladies!
I am asking this in multiple places, hoping to get lots of feedback. Thanks!

I pay a sitter $6 per hour for 3 kids and I paid one other girl $10!!!! Won't use her again. My regular daycare person charges $50 per day for 2 kids, but that is like 7am to 6pm at the latest. My kids are usually there for 8 hours when I am working. Where are you going that you need 14 hours? Just curious. I'd pay her about $100 for the day because it is not a contract thing, and you will be gone a very long time.
