I am planning a trip for October 2005.I am taking along a family friend who will be 15 at the time to help with my kids and so DH and I can get out at night by ourselves. Her mother wants to know how much we are spending on her so she can contribute. She wants to see what I have to add for a budget for her DD to come with us. So I am showing her the diufference of what it would cost for us to go alone and for us to take her DD with us? I invited her DD cuz she will be a big help to us and despite having been to Orlando many times and having relatives who work in WDW, she has been to MK once and only for 1/2 day when she was 8. I have planned to pay for everything for her DD and did not ask her mother to pay for anything. We are driving down, have the extra room in our hotel room, and will require her to go to the park with us each day so we can have the extra hands with our 4 kids. We are also doing two charachter breakfasts, and MNSSHP. Those are extra's that I don't think her mother should even worry about. I was just thinking that she would need some spending money and thats all. What would you tell the mothert that it is costing you extra on? Just the park tickets and some food? I am buying Q&C vouchers so some food will be shared and some meals will be eaten in the room. Help!! This girl is someone I used to babysit when I was younger. Her mother is a single parent for the last four years. She has two kids living at home and this is her youngest. She doesn't make a lot of money and I really don't want her to feel any kind of financial burden with her DD going with us.
