Re: How much do you pay a babysitter?

In our city in Washington state, the going rate for babysitters is $6 - 8 an hour. So, we pay our neighbor girl (now 15) $7 an hour to watch our one DD.

I had no idea that babysitting rates vary so widely throughout the country, though!! My word, if you pay $15 an hour for babysitting how do you have anything leftover to pay for the date?? At those rates, I'd rather hire a massage therapist to come to my home and give me a massage for an hour and bring me mai tais and sing to me!! LOL
Staying home with my DD and DS and loving it!:
