Default Paying For My Own Kids To Be In My Daycare

So my sister was recently added to my license and we now do daycare together out of my house. I have soon to be 2 children of my own that will be in our daycare, which is counted into our licenced capacity. I feel bad about my 2 kids taking up spots, therefore cutting into my sister's income potential.

Because of this, we have talked about me paying 50% of our weekly rate for each of my 2 kids once all of our spots become full.

Well now it looks as though we may fill up all of our spots which would mean I have to start paying for my kids. I did the math and all I can say is "yikes!!". I'd be paying $720/month to have my kids in my own daycare!! And the full $720 would go all to my sister.

My sister does pay me "rent" every month because the business is in my home. She pays $170/month.

So what I want to know is: Does all of this seem fair? Would you pay for your own kids? I don't really know what I'm doing!
