So a stay at home mom offered to watch my daughter at her house or mine occasionally. She has 2 kids who would be with her too (her own children) and I just need advice as to how much is reasonable to pay her. She's charging about $400/wk and she will be able to have her own kids with her so its not like DD will have all this individual attention. Daycares cost around $200 (a good daycare in my area at least) but due to my hours I can't send her to daycare....do you guys think $400/week is reasonable? I receive no help from her dad so I'd be paying rent (approx $1400/mo) utilities, car note etc and I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. All honest non judgmental opinions are welcome. Lol.
