DH and I went out for the first time on Friday ... Woohoo!
Our 17 year old babysitter with 4 years experience told me 5 to 6/hour was her rate. But our friends and coworkers said that 10/hr was what we should give her. So we went with 8 but now I feel guilty.
We live in the Denver metro area with one baby. Maybe 10 seems like a lot because I got 2 to 3 back in Iowa 15 years ago!
