How Much Should I Pay a Tri-Cities Babysitter? [POLL]

The other night I asked a couple people -- including a stranger -- how much we should pay the babysitter if the kids were asleep the whole time. They all said, "Nothing." WHAT?! I know that's not right, but how much is fair? We usually end up paying between $13-$16 for three kids age 6 and below for between 2-3 hours (they're usually asleep for at least some of it).

If you're like me, you've got stir-crazy kids asking to play in the back yard, go on a walk, go to a park -- anything outside. But it's RAINING! It's cold, drizzly, cloudy! That's when I turn to indoor playgrounds. A couple of gymnastic facilities have awesome playgrounds, but they can also be pricey. Fast food is my solution. For the price of a small fry or dollar burger I buy admission to the play area and let my kids get out their wiggles.
A few weeks ago we asked what your favorite free indoor playgrounds were. Below are the answers in the map. Below that is the survey where you can leave your own suggestion.
