I haven't posted about it in here but I've been having some troubles. I was babysitting for this woman. It was before and after school care for $35 a week. All was going well until she asked me to take her son two extra days. She said she would pay me $32 extra a week. After two weeks of only $40, I asked her what was going on. She decided without telling me that she was only going to pay 40 dollars for 4 days, not the 67 we agreed on. When I said that wasn't going to work she accused me of gouging her and went psycho *That's another long story,lol*. 

Long story short, I quit. Which really sucked because I needed that money. This was Friday. The very next day guess what happened?? I got a call from a neighbor asking me to fill in with a babysitting job. A dad she knows needs a babysitter every Saturday night. He pays $10 an hour for a min of 5 hours. Better pay, less time, less stress. Feeling soo blessed!!!

That is awesome!  Glad things worked out.  I do babysitting on  the side for extra $$.  It really comes in handy.  I would like  to be  certified/liscenced but there's a loophole in my state that says daycare providers can't  hs.

Thank you! And that's an odd law to have.

I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I am the mother.

 I learned the hard way not to babysit for money! I have been cheated out of pay to many times that I won't watch anyone's kids!

I know what you mean. Unfortunately babysitting is the best way for me to make some extra money on the side :-/
