This lady has lost her mind....

My daughter told a few of the families at our church that she was looking for work as a Mother's Helper this summer. She is 13 and very good with kids and helping around the house.

She had two people call her. 

 One wants her to work 8-3 each Mon - Thurs and will pay her $100/week.  I told her that since I have to be at work before that she would either need to pick up DD or I would need to drop her off at 7.  No problem she said she would pick her up.  This lady has a 4 year old and an 15 month old.

Now the crazy one.  She wants DD to work 7-6 each day.  Three kids under three.  $5/day.  Oh...and she wants every other Saturday.

When DD took the first job...the second lady said that $5 a day is good money and DD is being greedy and selfish.  Not the way to get my kid to work for you.  I also am not going to let her work 11 hour days during her summer.  She has other things going on besides working.  Also weekends are not happening.  We have several weekend trips planned.

Yeah... No. If she wants a professional nanny then she needs to hire one.

That's ridiculous. Even the $100 isn't much depending on how much she is doing. $5 a day? No way.

Lol she's out of her damn mind! She'll realize that when no one takes her up on her "offer"!

I agree the second lady is definitely cray-cray

Quoting Anonymous 2: That's ridiculous. Even the $100 isn't much depending on how much she is doing. $5 a day? No way.

 The lady is providing my dd a SeaWorld season pass, a museum pass, and a zoo pass.  She is letting her keep them to use with us or friends.  Mostly she just wants dd for when they are out and about.  Trips like to the park, Children's Museum, Zoo, pool, splash pad, and other things.  She asked to take her to Dallas for a few days...I am debating that one.

I guess she doesn't realize that in some areas, its illegal for a child that so work a certain amount of hours a week.
