When Eddy was a baby up to 2 years old..we were staying with my parents in law. They did have a maid who look after Eddy whenever she's free (in between cooking and cleaning up the house) but I'm always around. I have left Eddy and sometimes both my boys with my mil (mother in law) whenever I needed to buy something...but every time I do that, I feel guilty...I feel that it's my obligation as a mother to mind my children. I could never go out with a clear mind.
At the same time, I don't wish to have a maid either. Well, it's my choice...I don't believe in having a maid.
Anyway, Eddy will be 8 and Rayn will be 5. Rayn just started schooling this year. Alhamdulilah he loves his school and teacher..yeeeaaayyy!!
Both my boys goes to school together in the morning. After dropping them off I'm FREE until noon.*grin* Thee hee hee! You know what...it feels great!! That few hours of ME time every weekday is awesome. I think every sahm (stay-at-home mom) should have some time away from their kids. I don't feel guilty leaving them at school because school is a place they learn, make friends and have some fun.
So it's a win-win scenario...
