I already have a 3 and a half year old, babysit in my home and currently 34wks preggo. I pretty much provide all food and drink as well. I was thinking $50/day is that asking too much?

 I pay $25 a day for one child. If I had two in the same daycare I would get a discount which would make it less then $50 a day for 2 kids.

I would say it depends upon the going rate in your area for in home day care.

I would do maybe $30 a day.  It depends on how many hours a day, how many days a week, ect

True, I watch them for 11 hours a day monday through friday and provide food and everything. I could see if I was only babysitting for 7 or 8hrs a day for $30/day but im watching them ALL DAY
