how much do you pay your baby sitter? since jeff & i have had our little kidlets, we haven’t done much “dating.” we’ve made it out the door without any children thanks to our wonderful parents who babysit occasionally. but other than, we don’t really get out much. but this past weekend a baby sitter was hired & we went to the movies with my mom and some family friends. on the drive home, we started wondering, how much do we pay? you want to pay enough so that they will want to come back, but you don’t want to break the bank… so, how much do you pay your baby sitter?
Out here in NY, we pay $10 for the YW in the ward and $15/hour for the Nannies. My new rule is if we can't get the YW, the we're not going out. THe kids are always in bed and asleep before we leave anyway, so the sitter is getting paid for watching tv. Ah to live somewhere else where it's more affordable to date your husband!
