Our Househelper

*Day 29 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids

**All stories are true.

I haven’t really mentioned much about our househelper, B.

She has really lightened the load of housework here

by coming 3 days a week to

do laundry, dishes, clean the house,

wash bedding, wash produce,

sometimes prep or cook dinner

and keeping an eye on the house when we are out of town.

In the States, it’s typically only the wealthy who can afford nannies or house cleaners.

Here B does it all.

She will watch the kids any time

and has been responsible in fixing a water outage when we were away.

Yes I can do most of the things she does

(not as well),

but here it is expected for your family to financially support those in need.

B works hard and is paid for her efforts.

It allows me to branch out and spend more time

volunteering,

teaching yoga classes &

enjoying  culture and friends.
