Babysitting weird hours?

A friend needs someone to watch their 2 year old 3 nights a week but the hours are like 5-3:30 in the morning. I am thinking of doing it but I wouldn't know what to charge. I think I would have to tell them to come get him at 6:45 when my husband wakes up.

  • I assume its from 5 pm. I don't know that as a mother, that I would want my baby at a sitter's for any longer than neccessary. However, she might agree that its better, as baby will get uninterrupted sleep. Also she can have a nap too. That being said, I wouldn't charge her for those extra hours, because its what's convienent for you and as the baby is most likely sleeping, its not all that much extra trouble.
