Whoa, Momma!

How much do you pay your babysitter?



Mom_babysittersclub1 We love to get mail from our readers. Sometimes, they just want to tell us how much they love their Momma (Whoa or Go). Other times, they need some help. This E-mail falls into the latter category. It's from Susan, a reader who has a babysitting question but it's probably not what you think.

Writes Susan: "As the parent of a 15-year-old Red Cross-certified babysitter, I would like to see some feedback on what you moms of yungun's are willing to pay for a babysitter. We're not talking nanny here, just an old-fashioned evenings and weekends only date-night babysitter. Since the going rates obviously vary by location, we'd both appreciate input from area moms."

Okay, Mommas, Susan needs your help so she can know what her daughter should charge when she takes on a couple of rugrats in the near future. Thanks in advance for your help.
