The days in which you will watch our child rotate from week to week (it could be one day or five days per week depending on the week; you would not work weekends or federal holidays). My husband and I are both in law enforcement so the days will depend on our work calendars. We will give you the master calendar of days for four months ahead of time with the exception of the first 4 months because my husband's shift will be changing in October.
