Since the day Dane left to KSA, we always knew we needed a helper to help us with the household chores (specially that I needed to sleep during daytime because I work at night). I also needed someone to look after Nate when I’m at work (because of course, I can’t work and talk to my customers with Nate playing in the background, lol!).
So before Dane even left, we had a helper already, the first 3 weeks was not easy for all of us. Nate didn’t like her, didn’t want to sleep with her. I’m missing Dane big time and I always find myself sad because I wasn’t used to being away from him. It was a mess, but thankfully, after 3 weeks, Nate became close to her.
She was kind, she’s a bit old but I like her. The only problem is she has so many responsibilities at home (she’s a widower) and so there are times she could not go back right away. I let her go home during weekends. There was one time that she had to be absent for the entire week and that wasn’t easy for us at all. So I decided to get another helper.
(Bonus: Nate trying to figure out what I was drawing, she thought the car was a cloud! lol!)
Mama’s not good at drawing that’s why napagkamalang clouds ang car. Ahaha Daniel Matugas

The first helper’s exit was good, she understood why I needed to let her go, and every once in a while I would text her and ask how she’s doing. The next helper was younger, moves quicker and to me is a workaholic. She’s a single mom and she’s nice too. The only problem is she left for home without telling me that she wouldn’t come back anymore. So I didn’t know what to do.
There’s been so many days that I lack sleep because I needed to take care of Nate in the morning. I couldn’t (as you can see) blog or do my webinars anymore because I can’t find time for it. That’s the life I have right now. Currently, I’m just with Nate and my mother-in-law. It’s not easy but I think I’m starting to get used to it. And I’m not sure if I still need to get a helper, specially now that Nate is older.
Sorry for the long story, here’s a smiling potato. lol!
