We're moving to our new house in May and my DF said we can get someone to care for our house during the week. I'm considering my mom for the position. She can move in the guest room and she is the best cook in the world. Anyone on here have a nanny? How does it work for your family?

Grr how rude is it to hire your own family as "the help." Her time raising you is over. Unless she's desperate for a place to live and money I would never insult my mom by assuming she would want to be my housekeeper, cook AND nanny!

There are people that choose that as a profession. Let them do what they have choosen.

My mom enjoys stuff like that. She is always cooking and helping out with her grand kids. Every time she visit me, it's hard to get her to leave lol. I do know she is lonely at home by herself.

We have a nanny and housekeeper. Neither are live-in though. Definitely makes our lives easier and enables us to spend more time with our children.

Neither of them are going to sleep on the floor. The house has five bedrooms

That's what I'm looking forward to. Who does the cooking?
