Would you hire a full time live in nanny if you could?

I would, to help get them ready for school, pick them up from school, do some laundry for me, make dinner or breakfast sometimes, that would be sooooo nice.

  • Nope. I love doing everything with my kiddos. Now it might be nice to have someone to do my laundry and cook sometimes.

  • Yes, but I would still be a stay home mom. I would just take care of the kids.

  • Yeah it would be pretty nice, if I had a full time job, and you could trust anyone these days.

  • Nope, I think having a nanny makes people miss out on being a mom, I love doing everything, even the dirty stuff, It makes me happy knowing that I'm the one my DD depends on and she knows to come to me when she needs something

  • No, I'd hire a full time maid. hen I could just take care of my baby, and not have to worry about laundry or other mundane household chores.

  • I guess that is more of what I would want a maid, so I could spend more time with my children. She could just cook and clean and I could lunge around with the kids. THAT would be soooo nice.

  • no. I like raising my own kids, not leaving them for someone else to raise while I see them when ever it suits my schedule.

    I'll take a maid though and I'll keep taking care of the kids :)

  • i would rather stay home and take care of them myself but i would not mind some one helping me out with things so that i could spend more time with the kids and less time cleaning...

  • Nope. I enjoy watching my boys grow. I would enjoy a part time nanny for when I need to go shopping or pay bills. And I would LOVE a maid.
