Is this a bit cheeky?
One mindee is going on holiday for two weeks in May........the other childmider in my village is on holiday for the same two weeks and has asked that I do holiday cover for a little girl she has!
I will be paid twice! As parents pay me when they go on hols, and holiday mindee will pay me!

first thought was no, how lucky for you. but then realised, you mentioned other minder in village, implies a small village. would your family find out? would they be the sort of family to be upset by this?
Maybe if they would you could mantion it or say that you are helping another minder out and using the money to buy more toys etc?
hope you do manage to.

Can't see a prob - your family know they have to pay you when they are away - presume is in contract ? - so no skin off their nose - and other CM's family happy that their little girl has a CM whilst theirs is away - cannot see anyone being upset about this - and if they are they haven't got a leg to stand on !
Godd Luck for you Booh !

I don't see a problem with it - My CM is always looking after other peoples children on an ad hoc basis - and she doesn't tell me who is going to be there. I totally trust her with my DD - so I'm not worried by it. So I really wouldn't care at all when I am on hols what she does - she still has bills to pay. I admire her. So you go for - nothing to do with anyone else!

It's so not going to happen though - even if the holiday is cancelled they'll still be on leave from work - no-one would go bacjk to work - they'd just make the best holiday they could at home !!
Don't worry about it Booh - it's fine and you are not doing anything wrong whatsoever ! Can't understand why anyone would think you were (jealousy maybe ?)
