She texts me back and says "Thats ok I have two other ladies that will do it for $75/Wk". So I text her back and said Good Luck. No way Id do it for $75/Wk. Best of luck with the new job.

What did she want me to babysit him for free??? I mean really almost 60 hours a week of childcare, feeding the child all day long, getting up in the middle of the night to do it and she wanted me to do it for less than $75 a week. No thanks! Next ............... I mean get real!

People amaze me!
Sometimes I think people think we should do it for cheap because we are "home anyways". Those hours are nuts to begin with and then to want it for next to nothing! Gotta wonder what kind of providers those ladies will be for next to free!
