It was a struggle, but we made things work. We didn't have much choice, but we had a lot of help.
I’ve come to realize that spending time, money and energy on myself doesn’t make me less of a household manager, mother, wife.
It was not fun. We went through a list of candidates. We interviewed some. We called others. We had a few almosts.
Yaya Jessica was all right. She could put Lucas to sleep, and she seemed to take instruction well. She did our laundry too, which was a big help. She did the dishes after we ate, so that I could feed or bathe Lucas.
Ate Amy was Ilocana, and she was petite and a little round. She had long hair that she kept in a bun, and she had cute little bangs across her forehead.
Now I see various friends posting about skin care, and it’s my turn to help out and offer advice!
I did a lot of research on BeautyMNL and Cosmo.ph, and asked friends for recommendations too. I found a lot of interesting and helpful articles, which gave me ideas on brands and products to try.
