I got a babysitting job! I start tomorrow, its for SO's coworker (she has a 4 year old) and I can still be a SAHM (I'll be bringing DS with me).
So happy! :)

Awesome! I started babysitting last week....after 3 weeks of being unemployed. Lol. I watch the little girl at my house, so I still get to take care of my kiddos too. Considering my DD is just now 4 weeks(today), I wouldn't be released to go back to work anyhow. And after paying daycare for her and before/after school care for my two boys......I would bring home *maybe* $100/week.

That's what I make babysitting. I would much rather not have to spend 9 1/2 hours a day away from my newborn.

this is what i have been doing since september....

I get the luxuary of doing it my own home, I watch my SO's boss's 9 month old, and my 2 yr old nephew...


I love it because I am always available to those who need me, and I can continue my friendships more easily...

My SO hates it because it is 'always someone elses kid'... but knows its my dream to own a daycare so I think he is putting up with it until I realize Im crazy lol

Yeah I'm only charging $30 a week (I get paid bi-weekly) because its only one kid & it wont be every day, only the days she works, and when her older kids are in school & cant watch the youngest.

Nice I run a daycare and It's great because I make about 2000 month and get to stay home with my kids. Ofcourse I could make more just choose not to have that many toddlers running around.
