How much should I pay my babysitter?

We have a wonderful 17 year old girl that watches our 3 year old dd sometimes on the weekends. What should we be paying her per hour? What is the going rate in the Twin Cities area for teenage babysitters? Would I pay more when I have two kids?

I'm paying my nephew and niece $6/hour. Thats for two but I don't think I would pay much less for one. That's family. My daycare provider charges $10/hr in her home. So... somewhere in there.
I pay between $7-$8 for three....that is considered a good deal around here.
