I'm starting a full time temporary job this week after not having a job for several months. This job will only last three months. I will be working first shift, so she will need to watch him all day because my boyfriend works first shift too. She said that she will "only" charge me $2.50 an hour. That equals out to $400 a month and that is going to be one third of what I will be making! Do you think this is too much? Especially since she is my mother and this is her grandson that she's watching. I've checked into day cares in my area, and they are about $760 per month. Home day cares charge $400 a month, the same that my mom is going to charge me. I don't know how to ask her to charge me less, since I will not be making much money. Any advice or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!
