I told her that once we move in a month and a half (our current place is just that bad and i want to be away from the meth cooker next door!) That i would watch her son. After her hour lunch, she works 8 hours a day. I told her that I'd be fine with her paying $200 a month in babysitting. She offered to pay $300 but I'm fine with the $200 simply because she's a single mom, plus we help out each other when we can.
A lot of people i know say that I'm being too cheap. Yes, it is but I'm wanting to help her more. Plus, it gives Dante a playmate and such.
She will provide him with diapers (Dante is allergic to Huggies, the brand she uses for her son and her son is allergic to Pampers) and with his snacks between meals (both boys have allergies/intolerances, which is why she's doing that).
Do you think that's really a fair price? I wouldn't even dream of doing this honestly in the first place if she wasn't such a close friend of mine.
