The reason I ask is because I am pregnant 4.5 months and I am thinking of putting an ad on craisglist to hire someone in my home. I was thinking of using them a couple times before I have the baby so I can get my girls use to them and also thinking about using them for doctors appointments and then when I go to have the baby I was wanting someone to come overnight. I have noone that is why I am doing it this way. If it works out I plan on keeping her and using her a couple times a month so DH and I can get out once in a while because I never get that I am a SAHM. I was wanting to know how much to charge someone to watch my girls. Both potty trained. My youngest just turned 3 and my oldest will be 6 in 2 months. How much do I charge an hour for 2 kids? How much do I charge for onenight overnight for 2 kids? I plan on having the sitter come one time to see how she interacts with my kids should I charge her to do that? What questions should I ask?

Im scared to hire a baby sitter. Thank God I have teen age kids that can watch the little ones. My suggestions is that you do a complete back ground check on them. You as a mom should have a good or bad feeling when meeting them. If you meet them, make sure they arent over the top nice...that is kind of fake to me. I would except someone that seems real, and I have a good feeling about. It they are to nice right off the bat, like extra sweet...I would kind of be like..hmm are they serious about being this good to my kids. Dont get me wrong, maybe they would be..but I just wouldnt by it. I would make sure I sat down with my kids and tell them no matter what they can tell me anything that bothers them. You will get a feel whether your kids like her or not. Just trust your motherly instincts. ;)+
