Thanks for sharing your story... wow I admire you, 5 kids must be really tiring for you to handle. Hope you can quickly find some reliable and trusted help soon . My current helper of 7 years is so great with kids...and i did not know that she was good with kids until i gave birth...she is so patient with the babies and she is calm when the babies fuss about...she handles them with such love and care. When I was pregnant, the hormones made me very emo , and yet she was patient with me and helped me through my difficult pregnancy. She is ike a sister to me. I really dread the day she leaves as I know i will not trust any other helper/stranger with my babies.
an update from my end... found a FDW filipino... looks great on paper biodata... i even interviewed on on skype... when i finally decided to hire her..she said she needs time to settle some 'home problems' and she can only come in August... which is not an option for me. *sigh*.
ANyone got feedback on transfer helpers? that would be faster but i have the impression that transfer helpers have a lot of problems too.
