I guess I am on a vent roll today...
I purchased a new car recently, I had been driving my beater for a very long time and I finally wanted to do something nice for myself so I bought myself a car.
DS is watched by a friend of the family. I pay her about $500 a month (more than what she initially asked for and all in cash) full time (M-F 8to5:30). I feel very uncomfortable about telling her about the car or even letting her see it. I have been parking it on the street and not in her drive way like I normally do when I drop DS off. I guess I am worried that she will think I should be paying her more if I could afford to get a new car?
Is this all in my head, or is this a normal thing? I guess I feel bad because I don't pay her very much at all to handle a baby/toddler. Should I get over it?
