Babysitting Niece an Nephew....should I have to take them places everyday....?
My mother-in-law keeps nagging at me to take them places constantly.
I took them to a puppet show on Monday at the public library and to get ice cream today. She wanted me to take them to a museum that we have all visited a lot & to the library AGAIN- and neither child wanted to go.
Gas is almost $5 a gallon and I drive an SUV. I am getting paid $40 a day. I watch them from 7:30am to almost 6pm every day.
Should I have to pay out of my own pocket to take them places and keep them entertained with field trips? I wouldn't mind if it was something fun that their parents paid admission for, like a water park or something.
What do you think?
My MIL nagging me is really bothering me. She is the one that roped me into babysitting them because she didn't want to, and now she is trying to dictate activities!
I felt really bad about accepting the $40 a day until I read all of your answers. Thank You!!!!!!!
