The nature of my job (birth doula) is very unpredictable. I will only need a sitter one-two days per month, but could need the sitter for a full 12 hours. I'm offering a retainer fee for the guarantee that you'll be available should I call you (and you can keep that even if I don't call you), plus pay hourly for however many hours between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. I do need you. Mostly likely, I'll need to hire a handful of sitters to take different days/weeks to provide me full coverage. My daughter will be 14 months when this gig starts. Also, we do have a cat. No housekeeping, meal prep, or other duties required. If my girl gets some food, sleep, and playtime, I'm happy!
