  • Oh yeah and I pay her a little more because I depend on her, and I want her to take good care of my child.

  • 1.) the clothes are conidered a gift so no they don't matter.

    2.) a friend of mine watches my 2 year old dd for the same amount of time a week. I pay $60 a week for one child, so I would assume that you would pay a little more for 2 children. I think at least $75 a week.

  • No the clothes dont matter. Im sure you gave them no strings attached. I bet she would be content with $30 for both days but it is something you should discuss with her.

  • I think $15 for each day is enough. $10/hour seems high to me for family especially for a 1 time thing. If it was her job it may be different. Where I live we pay $20- $25 for all day and get a discount on the second child so our rates are prob low compared to other cities.

  • Ask her what she will charge. It depends on the area. I don't think the fact that you give her hand me downs should impact the price.
