A friend of ours is a single mom whose ds is a month younger than my dd. When she went back to work, she asked me to babysit a couple of days a week, and she's paying for the sitting.
Here's the problem: This week, she brought her son over, like normal, but mentioned that he's had a fever of 104 degrees (!!) the previous night, along with a runny nose, but the fever was gone, so everything was fine.
I really didn't want to watch him, but she's got absolutely no one else to help her. So, like a fool, I didn't say anything (just wiped the poor little guy's nose all day and washed everyone's hands like crazy), and now my dd is sick.
And not just a little sick, either...she was up about every half hour last night, and couldn't nurse back to sleep because she couldn't breathe when she latched on.
So how do I bring this up with my friend? I'm on the fence about babysitting, anyhow, since my dd is the reason I'm at home, and she hates sharing her mama. We can use the extra money...but not at the risk of making everyone here sick! Any suggestions?
