Recently a REALLY good friend of mine (I was her maid of honor) from years past popped back up in my life......we reconnected thru facebook first and it turns out she lives 15 mins from me and has a 10 month old adorable lil' girl! My friend, Amanda, is done her maternity leave and is being forced back to work (she'd prefer to stay home but they can't afford it) so she's asked me if I would be interested in watching Sophie, full time.....monday - friday, she'd drop her off by 8am and pick her up by 4pm! She would supply ALL Sophie's necessities, with the exception of the stuff that I obviously still have from Roxanne! She's hoping to have me do this all for $500/month.....works out to $25 dollars a day! I also want to add that it would only be for approx. 7 months.....Amanda JUST found out she's preggers again so it would be from May 23 till sometime in November she figures!
I want to say yes, because we could use the extra money but I also have my reservations about it too! What are ur thoughts? I've never babysat a young child like that before and I'm worried I might be getting in over my head? I know some of you are day care providers so I'd love some advise on what questions to ask Amanda or what to think about before I give her my decision....
