Wow katiemac, At least it proves that the parents are happy and comfortable enough with your care to leave their children with you! Perhaps you should advertise as a recuperation setting as well as a minding setting!!

Do you think I could charge more?

Don't know about that, if you are serious it might depend on how mobile the mindee with the sprained ankle is? would you have to provide more resourses than usual if he/she is supposed to be resting most of the time. Personally I wouldn't but then it's upto the individual minder

Nooooo - not tomorrow - but if I set up a convelesance minding service

ohhh gotya, bit thick today!! Might join you on that one, had a mindee with chickenpox few weeks ago and have been looking after DD3 who's been sick all day. Chances are my other two will catch it and so will most of my mindees as they are mostly in the same classes as DD1 and DD2!!Honestly don't know anything about convelesence minding service though but to me it would be to much like going back to my previous job.
