My husband and I are both working full time with varying schedules. We've not had a yaya since March, so it's been 5 months.
I'm so over getting upset over yaya issues. I'm actually not actively looking for one anymore, kumbaga, kung may dumating and may mai-refer fine. We get by with help from my mom. My daughter is just turning 4 and she recently started going to school. At first, my goal was to find a replacement before school starts because I couldnt find it in my heart to let my daughter take the school bus alone. Good thing the bus mother is kind and caring naman. Their school also has a very good system when turning over kids to their fetcher. This is our routine:
6am-9am: Work out, cook breakfast, prep school snacks, prep her for school, prep for work
130pm: My daughter comes home from school and my mom looks after her
5pm: My husband comes home from work; he and my daughter will have dinner, he'll give her a bath and prep her things for the following day
9pm: I'll get home from work and I'll check if everything is prepared
Nakakapagod and stressful din pero parang mas ok na saken to kesa may helper nga ko na binabayaran pero wala naman pakinabang. Gagastusan ko na, mabu-bwisit pa ko. The most important thing for me is that one of us is there in the morning and at night to bathe her and spend time with her.
