Would you babysit your friends 3 kids on their spring break?

I have 3 kids and she has 3. Her kids are 3, 7, and 9. We both go to school but my oldest is old enough to babysit for me but she needs a babysitter for the week of spring break. I'd have her kids all week from 7:30am then have to drag them to school with me and trade them off to her before my class starts. Ugh. I don't want to but I said yes =(

  • My brother wanted me to watch his twins for spring break. I said no because I am working on finals this week and already have an extra kid.

  • I have a 7 page research paper, an argument presentation, and several chapters to read. I'm quite busy but I was dumb enough to say yes. She just better not make me late for class!

  • Well it is only a week. Maybe sometime she could return the favor. GL!

  • Is she paying you? It sounds like a pain but if it's only a week and you need extra money it shouldn't be that bad. If you don't need money or she isn't paying you and you feel if will mess with your school work tell her you can't or maybe tell her you can only do a few days and maybe she can find someone else to cover the other days.

  • I wouldn't have said yes to that. School would have been your perfect OUT. You ARE too busy.
