Re: what to pay a babysitter?
Thanks for the replies!
This sitter is 13. We like her very much. Our kids are 11 months and 2.5 years. She came over at 5, we got home at 12 and then she stayed overnight. I paid her $80. She seemed very happy with that.
The last time we got her was last year for the Christmas party (which had been the only time until last night), that's how much dh and I get out! Well, we went on a date in March when my mom was up and watched the kids. As it was I spent last night cuddling/walking a fussy newborn that came to the party so the mom could have a break! And I loved every minute of it too!
