$105 for Challenge

December 20th, 2007 at 07:29 pm

Old Total: $3250.86
+ $105.00 babysitting
------------------------
New Total: $3355.86

I made $105 babysitting for the new family this week. Tonight was a little easier-- maybe we all just needed to adjust to each other. The little boy is jealous of the 8 month year old. I understand why, but it makes it difficult to care for her while trying not to make him feel like second fiddle. If I can toot my own horn for a minute, I will say that I think I have a knack for kids. From what I've heard from their other sitter and the parents, I think I'm making a lot of progress with the little guy.

Oh well. I said I'd sit for them the week after Christmas. I'll have to see how that goes and them decide if this is something I want to continue.

    Do you have an age preference that you prefer to sit for?

    @Lux: Initially I thought it was young kids, but it turns out I prefer school age children. Babies and toddlers are OK for short periods. However, for more than a few hours, engaging them can get boring. I imagine parents of young children you let them play independently for little spans of time, but when I'm getting paid, I feel like I need to be playing with them the entire time. School age games are just a little more interesting than toddler play!
