I am going to be watching two children ages 6 yrs and 21 months in my home twice a week (thurs-fri) from 9:30 am to 5pm. We are trying to figure out a price that is good for both of us, what would you pay/charge?

Well I would say for two kids maybe $9 a hour or do a block price! What are they wanting to pay you?

Yeah sadly childcare is usually not a big income maker. I would make her do at least $40 a day for both kids.

I wish I could say the same! Charge what your comfortable with then! Ask her to throw out a price and go from there!
