What is the most important part of being satisfied with a Mommy Assistant?
Communication is the key. After the Mommy Assistant has completed their work, spend 5-10 minutes reviewing the completed work and if you would make any changes. The Assistant is new to your home and doesn’t know to make changes unless you are able to tell them. The completed tasks will duplicate what you normally do as long as you communicate. Be as open as possible. This is a business and you are paying for the service. Make sure you get what you want out of it.

The time for an Assistant starts work begins at the time they arrive at your home. If you instruct them to run an errand before coming to work, time starts as they arrive at the first location if the distance is within reason.
