I paid my mom to watch J. I knew she couldn't afford to stay home just to watch him, but I knew she really wanted to spend time with him, and would have done it for free if she was able. Plus there was no one else I'd rather have him stay with at the time.
Unfortunately, she lived too far away to keep it up so we had to get a nanny, but I loved having her watch him, and I still pay her to keep him occasionally.

You could charge her to watch her children. Not as much as a daycare, but enough to compensate you for your time.
