Re: how much to pay babysitter?
We pay $10 an hour here too for both our children. We live in a crazy expensive area though. For this reason we trade with another family. Works out great. We both get to get out and we don't have to worry about paying someone to watch TV. I always put my children to bed before I leave, I'd worry otherwise.
