  • I Bumped this Question for you! I hope if you need any. You Can get one! Wow! Thankfully I raised my DD's!! Before I got Triple Negative breast cancer! How now the 3 chemos have damaged me! I drop everything! I can't trust my Body! All of last year and to date I prayed for a floor Mopping! Nope! So I'd love a Maid!! I have so much Dust and issues.. And cookie jars, S&P's needing dusting!! Since we haven't turned on our furnace since '04. Well They say you have a lot of dust! 40 lbs.# of Dust! With only a wood stove! We must have more! So a maid please! As long as I'm dreaming! But a paid for one. Since we have no income here at all right now! DH lost his job 2 years ago!! If I get a Miracle and get any health back.. I wouldn't need anything. I'd be back to independently doing it myself! But who doesn't need help sometimes! Best of Luck everyone!

  • A cook!

  • A cook. I'd tell them to cook me tasty, extremely healthy meals and don't listen to me one iota if I tell them otherwise. I love when someone cooks for me, I eat, I'm satisfied!

  • Neither really. I wouldn't need a cook because my husband LOVES cooking and he does it for us. I wouldn't need a nanny because I want to be the one that takes care of my child, not some stranger. And I really don't need a maid because between my husband and I, our house is always clean. But I guess if I had to choose one, I'd go with maid because cleaning isn't my favorite thing in the world to do.

  • YES!!!! I would have a cook and a "personal assistant" for my son who is 13 and has special needs. Someone who had experience with special needs kids and who was a physical therapist too! He would love that!

  • A maid. I like to cook, and I don't want someone else raising my baby.
