This is really goofy... but what is the etiquitte here?
So I have a friend-ish person who I went to grade school with but never really talked with her. Recently we found eachother on fb and realize we share a lot of views on motherhood. I think we could be really close. However, we've only actually hung out for 1 play date in the past year and we did have a great time. It was the first time we've seen eachother literally since 1990 I think? Anyway, she just called in a rut and wants me to come babysit Tuesday so she can go to a job interview. I will be babysitting her 3 yr old and 3 month old. I told her "absolutely!!" without skipping a beat. The thing is, I know my hubby is probably thinking "how much is she gonna pay you?" I don't know how to handle it if $ comes up - my natural ways are to refuse the $, but usually that's with close friends or family. This is someone I barely know but I feel is a budding friendship. She did not offer $ on the phone, she just said she needed the help and I told her I was available. If Tuesday comes and she offers $, what is the right thing to do? We REALLY could use the extra cash, but I don't want to look tacky by just yanking whatever she offers out of her hand, so to speak.
