I just started keeping 2 children they are 3 and 5 months old I only keep them on "date nights" and have only kept them 2 times before well the family is going out of town on Dec 25 to Jan 1st...and I have to go over there one day to let her show me where everything is and how to do everything b/c i am going to feed the cats and do the whole litter thing when they are should I get the two kids something for christmas??? The two time I went over there they let me bring my 5 year old with me they were gone 5 hours and gave me $60 when I only asked for $30. I just didn't know if I should get them something for Christmas or not???

OKay 2 part question they asked me what I would charge to go over there them days for the cats they said everyother day would be okay how much should I charge them???
By the way I don't "know" this family they just moved here and I found them on sittercity. THanks so much

  • question 1 - if you feel compelled to get something do but I am quite sure they aren't expecting it. If it was me I would do something little like a onsie, Christmas hat or bib.
    question 2- going rate for bet sitting in my area is 15-20 dollars a trip.

  • I would check the rates for pet sitting in your area, as for the gifts, I think it would be thoughtful to take a small gift for each of the children, maybe even just an ornament.

  • I'd say if you do, something small as a good jester. Your a sitter and don't really know them that well if new to the neighborhood.
