After close to 8 years of living in Canada with no family to watch our kids if we ever wanted to go out alone; nobody to take the kids off my hands for even an hour, we decided to get some help.
A few months ago we applied for a nanny and started the long papertrail.
Last weekend she arrived and it has been great.
It takes some getting used to having someone else in our space, especially since we are notoriously private people, but our privacy is one the reasons we decided to get someone who will live with us and work only for us.
*M* is an awsome housekeeper. She cleans everything, all the time.She helps out with the kids, especially during the crazy morning and evenings when all four kids need stuff at the exact same time.
It's been bliss!
