The SmartSitter will primarily be home with the baby, but sometimes meet mom at NYU or downtown at the Immigration court to watch where she does occasional doing fieldwork, and watch the baby in the waiting room while she am doing observations of court proceedings, so someone open minded and flexible and open to adventure is a plus!

It is very rare they would ever be with all three kids alone at once.
