Help. Have you ever had an...

au pair?
Hubby and I are discussing the possibility of hiring an au pair but I've never had one before so I need opinions. Is it reliable?

  • No. But I have a mother's helper. She takes care of DS while I get things done. She does not live in. I love her! I don't think I could have her live here.
    Anyway, good luck finding a great girl!

    -----------------
    depends on the amount of money you have and position in social standing
    babysitter
    then
    nanny
    then au pair

    au pair is a nanny that is most likely from another country and families with a lot of money may decide this route

    NOUN: A young foreigner who does domestic work for a family in exchange for room and board and a chance to learn the family's language.
