I've been a live-in nanny for my current family for two years. I am paid very well, on the books, with exceptional benefits. For the first time in two years, another family member has asked me to watch their two children while they go away for a weekend. This other family does not have a nanny because their mother is a SAHM. They have asked me what I'd like to be paid for the weekend and truly, I don't know what would be fair. My current position is a salaried pay and my prior position was also salaried; so, I'm unsure as to the "going rate." These are two school-aged children who I will be taking care of from Friday afternoon through Sunday evening, in addition to the two children I already am responsible for. Since it is the weekend, the family I live-in for will not need me as much as they do during the week but they still do need me to a certain extent. All suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
