We are having my boss' daughter babysit our 4.5 month old for the first time tonight. She is a sophomore in college and studying early childhood development. She has lots of babysitting experience. This is our first time leaving him when we won't be back for bedtime. How detailed are the instructions you leave for your babysitters? Also, do you leave money for food? Obviously DS will not be eating. She will be here from 6-no later than 10. I was also thinking $10/hr. He goes to bed at 7:30, so she shouldn't have much to do. We are in Chicago if that matters. Thanks!
