Following in his mother;s footsteps, Will took the Red Cross babysitting class offered here on base and is now eligible to babysit other kids. He already had his first paying customer: Josephine, the 1-year old two doors down. He earned $10. His rates are $5 per hour for the first child and $2.50 an hour for additional children. I think I was paid $4.25 an hour at my first "real" job.
