My friend has a dd who turns 2 next month. She just got in trouble last month because she got caught driving with a revoked license, no insurance and expired plates. She has jail every weekend for the next few months and she no longer has her vehicle. Its a brand new vehicle so she still has to pay for it. Although I do feel bad for her, its not my problem. She got herself into that mess.
She only gets daycare for her dd a few days a week. Last night she was asking if I would babysit for her. She works 5am to 2pm. She thinks that since I dont work mornings, I can babysit for her. She offered to pay me $10
I said I would do it for $15. I mean, I'm going through alot right now too and money is tight. She said her dd would be sleeping half the time anyway so its only fair to pay me $10. But my kids wake up between 7 and 8 so there's no way her dd would sleep after that. I only asked for $5 extra and she says that I'm taking advantage of her. Am I? I dont see the big deal in an extra $5 for babysitting 9 hours and getting up alot earlier than I usually do
