My sitter requested to get a day off next week; should I rewrite her paycheck for next week and subtract that day or just leave it as is? I've always paid her for holidays and random days I've kept him home (or my Mom has taken him). This is only the second time she asked for a day off in 7 months and last time it was because she was sick. I don't want to upset her, but I have to pay someone else to watch him that day.
BTW--we do not have a contract, she is just a friend that stays home with her LOs and offered to keep mine for some extra cash.

i think i would pay her half a day, sounds like you have a great sitter, don't upset the apple cart over a few bucks, it's not worth it. :) just tell her that your doing this because you appreciate her & the way she cares for your child ( if you do ) sounds like shes worth it... good luck

I agree, if you cancel on her then go ahead and pay her. If she cancels on you then do not pay her. If she gets upset she needs to understand that nobody gets paid if they don't work at any other job and you also had to pay someone else to what your child. I think you nice enough to pay her on holidays and when you cancel on her and that's good enough.
