Quoting ma ♥:" Hmm, so at least you won't be spending gas to drive to her house. But I would ask her to bring the boy ... [snip!] ... then that, Idk what I would charge. But it definitely wouldn't be 200. Maybe have her give you a price & go from there?"


She's going to be in another state so he's not going to see her at all besides when she drops him off on the 11th and picks him up the 15th. He's going to need more than lunch and snacks, and I don't mind providing him food and drinks since he is going to be at the house for 5 days, day and night. I wouldn't want to make him feel excluded by me making him what his mom left, and us eating what we prepare every day.



I'm not going to be like "It's $200 or you can find someone else" I'm going to work with her, but like I said, I don't want to sell myself too short since I will roughly be watching him for 96+ hours straight.

200 is a good starting point. And honestly, i wouldn't feel comfortable paying my friend any less. Just because yall are friends doesn't mean she can take advantage of you, ya know?

That's how I feel. I would never want to be unfair to her by any means, but there has been times where she has taken advantage of me when it comes to watching him.
