My daughter is nearing 8 months old. I was working from the time she was three months until almost six months, but I quit because I did not want full-time work and part-time wasn't an option. Now I may be able to get what sounds like a great part-time job. The only problem is that the hours will be highly irregular. I would be able to do a lot of the work at home in my own time, but one component of the job would be leading training sessions for teachers and librarians on using an educational subscription-based website/database. Each training would last a few hours, but they could be located all over my metro area. So I would need childcare on these days, but how do you find a nanny who can accomodate an odd schedule. The trainings would be scheduled well in advance, but I wouldn't need, say, every Tuesday and Thursday; I'd need say next Monday, and the Wednesday after that and maybe then go a few weeks with nothing and then two days the first week of next month, etc. Is this an impossible situation? I'm just looking for brainstorming ideas in case this job offer comes through.
