Does this seem like a fair price??

A friend of mine is taking in a couple foster kids for a few weeks, before they get placed in their temporary home.

I got approved to babysit for her, so I'l watch them while she's at work. They'r 2 boys; age 2 & 4 weeks. Do you think $35 a day seems fair?? I know she gets paid to watch them but I don't know how much & I don't want it to cost too much.

What do you think?

That sounds fair. We paid a friend $25 a day to watch our 2 year old, so $35 or $40 seems reasonable for the 2 of them.

Go on sittercity.com and see what people are paying for 2 children in your area. I would do $200 week for 8 hours day. He in Mass. people are paying 75-100 day

The daycare here charges $100 a week full time but that's about all I know

730-4 or 5 depending on if her or her husband are picking them up
