Curious... I did last week. I was on bereavement leave for my grandfather passing, and I needed my nanny there for the services, but I had here here before as well so I could get ready and actually arrive on time which would have been impossible with two young children to care for as well.
My Mother, of course, gave me this huge lecture and guilt fest for it about how I should be ashamed of myself for having the nanny come over while I'm there and I sould just be able to do things like she she did and she had three of us at home, etc.
I can't seem to get ANYTHING done at home when I'm by myself with my children... the only thing that gets done is taking care of them. Anything extra just is really hard to fit in. Some days are better than others... but for example, getting a shower, and dressed appropriately for a funeral, if the kids did not nap at the same time (which doesn't usually happen, or if it does, it will be like for a half hour, maybe?) I would have been unable to shower... because I can't leave my baby and toddler unattended, as the toddler still does not know she can accidently hurt the baby when trying to play with him.
