also, i see in your sig that you're pregnant w/ multiples AGAIN? wowowowowowowowwwwwwwwwwwww.
I contribute my "party girl" status to the fact that my niece was in college and didn't have time for a regular job so babysitting my twins for a couple of hours gave her grocery money. Sometimes she split the gig with her roommate and they loved it. That Vegas weekend though my mom and my daughter watched the kids at my mom's place. They ended up coming back early because my mom said the twins missed their own beds. Lol. Sure they did. I crawled thru the front door in the wee morning hours and my mom was quick to shower, hop in her car and head home. She'd had enough.
I haven't been out alone since. It's hard to burden people with 2 babies. I feel guilty. I remembered all the people that offered congrats and babysitter promises when I was pregnant but I noticed none of them are banging down my door to help when Nick and I want a night out. Our nights out consist of firing up the grill and eating dinner under the setting sun. Sometimes to shake things up a bit we'll pull out the waterguns and have a water fight. Maybe jump in the pool. We're easily entertained. ;)
Re: The Housekeeper - she's worked for my family for over 40 years. She still cleans for my parents full time and part time with me. I pay her in medical benefits. I added her to my employee group plan - it works out really good. I wish she'd come in more often, she has been a huge help to me with the twins. Lately my energy levels have run low and she's been coming in more often. I love her. She's like the quiet mother-in-law you wish for. And she makes a mean enchilada too! I hired my nephew's girlfriend to come in M-F, 8 to 2pm to help me with the kids as I struggle thru the 1st tri of this pregnancy. I'm just so tired all of the time. And she's in college too and had a difficult time finding work. Plus, I know her and she knows the kids - we've got a good system working. My husband was finishing our remodel and for the next 2 weeks he's signed up for coaching and teaching workshops. So I definitely need the extra hands.
