I need help at my house. I have an almost 3 year old, newborn twins, we own a business, and I have a homestead. I want chickens and to be able to make my food from scratch, but I just cant get it together to do all that with no help. DH will be home 4 days a week, but he needs to be doing office work for our business. So, Im planning to hire someone to help out for about 20 hours a week. Basically, just someone to be an extra set of hands. Someone to help dress kids, to help keep the house tidy, make food with me, play with DD while I nurse the twins, and help with laundry and dishes.
My friend, who lives about a mile away, is having her baby in April and has to go back to work in August- 4 days a week. In August, Ill have 8 month old twins, a 3.5 year old, and her baby will be almost 4 months old. Do you think it would work for her to leave her baby with me and my mothers helper? Or, do you think that's too many kids for two adults?
