Who would you hire if you could?
I was just thinking of a friend of mine, wondering if she was going to have any more kids. Then I thought: They're pretty well off, maybe they could just hire a nanny if it became to much work. Then I imagined myself with a nanny (and not a job). I don't think I would like that. I only have one kid, but I know taking care of her is one of my favorite things. And even when its not (like making lunch, I don't care for making toddler lunches) I'm still not sure I would feel right about passing that off to someone else just because I didn't want to do it.
But taking care of kids is not the only thing moms do. Maybe I would want to hire a cook. Can you imagine a nice healthy dinner every night? Hmmm, that might be nice. On the other hand, coming up with new creative dinner ideas and grocery shopping is a fun creative outlet for me, so maybe not.
Or a housekeeper? Someone to clean the bathrooms and the kitchen? Wash the sheets, fold the clothes? I could get used to that.
Who would you hire if you had the need/money? Or would you?
