Ever tell someone you'd babysit and then instantly regret it? I don't want to watch my friends little boy tomorrow, he is in his terrible twos and is a holy terror. I felt bad and opened my mouth and said oh ill watch him until you can find daycare. I'm kicking myself in the ass right now. How would I go about getting out of this?

Not a dog that won't stay off your new leather furniture and won't even come to his name. The only thing the damn dog didn't do was piss on my floor!

I'm a big believer in doing what you said you were going to do. No one forced you to volunteer. It's pretty shitty to back out now.
But you can amend it. Tell her something came up, and you can only watch junior for X amount of days or weeks, so she needs to find a daycare by then. Otherwise, she might take advantage of you.
You ARE being paid for your efforts, yes?

You get out of it by doing some serious Google research and finding her a new daycare ;)

No. She doesn't have the money to pay me.
