Happy Valentine's Day!

In celebration of Valentine's Day Scott and I have decided to venture out and for the first time ever actually get a babysitter for the evening (so we can catch dinner and a movie - I won't mention how long it's been since we've been to the movie theater). We heard that all of the young women in the ward are pretty good so we are going off word of mouth. I don't know the girl that is babysitting very well but she is 17 and he bishop's daughter. That has to count for something right? :) I hope everything goes okay with Easton. He has always had family or one of my friends who he is familiar with to watch him. So here's a question. . . . as I have never had a babysitter before, how much are you supposed to pay them per hour? I'm sure things have changed since back in the day when I used to babysit. I have no clue!?

Hey Jess! Not that I have ever had to pay a babysitter, but I was talking to Melissa Montoya the other day about having some YW help spring clean my house, and she said she pays $3/hour for babysitting....I would ask the girl what she expects. Have fun going out! What movie are you going to see?

How fun! I hope you have a blast! Sorry, I have yet to pay a babysitter myself, but I think $3 a hour sounds good to me.
Is there anyone in the ward you feel comfortable calling and asking what they pay? Maybe the rates are different in South Carolina. :)

Hope you guys had a fun night away. Sadly, or not, Colby and I have never gotten a 'babysitter' either, except one time when we were dating, he didn't want Danjano's to know we were dating so...anyway.
