So this past weekend I babysat for a family that I met on care.com. I'm not happy when things aren't communicated to me, and she neglected to tell me that her kid will make himself throw up for attention...frequently! Needless to say the night was gross and just a nightmare for me. I felt like cleaning up all the vomit justified some sort of extra appreciation...even a thank you would be nice.
I wasn't happy so I decided that night that I didn't want to babysit for them again. Then she asked me to babysit again this weekend, with an extra kid, who is also "easy"...she said her son was easy too. I said that I wasn't available and I think she got the hint because she didn't react too nicely.
All that being said, I'm happy with my decision...but for some reason I just feel bad about the straight up "no" that I gave her. So, for future reference, how would you all have handled that situation?
