Last minute or spontaneous plans, emergencies, unexpected responsibilities, sick children-- sometimes, things come out of left field and we are in need of helping hand last minute. Things might come up unexpectedly, but that doesn't mean you can't be prepared for them. Having a few sitters on call to reach out to in time of need will set you mind at ease that even when things come up, you've got a team in place to take care of things.
How are you going to find sitters willing for a last minute job? Sign into keikisitters.com and post an "on-call" job position. Interview a few sitters until you find a couple you are comfortable with, and who are flexible with their schedules and able to come last minute when something comes up. You may have to pay a higher rate for the peace of mind of having someone on call, but when that thing comes up, whatever it is, you will be happy you did!
