Its minimum wage per hour at least for family to register as your employer. In applying a low day rate its cash they can pay only.
Or is it family intention register with revenue and then under declare the hours on your contract meaning they look like they are paying you at least minimum wage as they legally should. Are you getting a contract?

Legally speaking she should be paying you more than minimum wage as there are two children, fair play to you though!
it is a 9.5 hour day so should be paying in the region of €114 per day which would be €570 per week . . .
I would say (if you´re open to it) no less than €80 per day which is €400 per week.
Remember: While you are sympathetic to her plight, you need to earn a living too! If you were working in another sector it wouldn´t be fair (or legal) for your boss / prospective boss to say "we can´t afford to pay you the full amount"
Judging by what your post says it is a baby / young toddler and another ages 3-4, it is full on work and you don´t get breaks, don´t undersell yourself xx
