Honestly no kahit sahm ako... I have 2 kids, 4 yr old boy and 1 yr old girl, and di ko maimagine na wala maski isang helper.. Actually kaya ko gawin lahat ng chores but, di ko pwedeng iwanan mga kids ko na walang nakabantay, kahit sa school di kami kampante ng husband ko na walang yaya na sasama sa little boy ko..plus, my husband works 7 days a week at madalas 9 pm na nakakauwi so walang pwedeng tumulong..our house is medyo big pa kaya problema din ang paglilinis..so my answer is no talaga lol

Ang sakit sa katawan lalo na paglinis ng banyo. ang hirap maging solo na all around may anak pa ako mag aaral sa pasukan. Wala man lang maglinis ng bahay habang asikasohin ko sana anak ko. Pag napapagod ako ang lamig ng pawis ko saka sumusumpong ulcer ko .

Nung kami pa lang ni husband, wala kami helper. Kaya ko maglaba at maghugas at magluto. Since mura lang magpa-laundry sa Pinas, nagpapalaundry kami sa labas. When we were based abroad, ako nagla-laundry.

Pero yung plantsa at linis, di ko talaga kaya,  so we get part-timers for that. Here sa Pinas, my kuya's helper used to go to us every 2 weeks, during her dayoff to clean and plantsa. When we lived abroad, me maid services kami tinatawagan para pumunta sa amin 2-3x a month.

But since nabuntis ako, and now na meron na baby, me helpers na kami. When we travel, when we go out of town, hotel staycation or if usual weekend lakad like pedia visits, etc, minsan kaming 3 lang ni hubby and baby. Kaya naman, pero super-pagod lalo't lumilikot na si baby. Laking ginhawa na meron kami assistants in doing chores, in running errands and in taking care of the baby.

As for driver, kaya na walang driver. Si hubby "driver" namin. If wala si hubby, or need ang additional sasakyan, we borrow my in-laws' driver. Tsaka me Uber or Grab naman, if may personal errands. Tho mag-aaral ako mag-drive soon. Sayang din kasi ang extra sasakyan, walang gumagamit.

There was never a need for a driver because we all know how to drive saka we like control over the wheel plus taking care of our own cars.

We used to have maids growing up but got tired because of problems (yung mga ok had to leave then the rest that followed cannot compare).
So we learned to help each other.

Now that I'm married, we chose a small place that we can manage. Every 6 months though kuha ng helper for general cleaning. Meron cleaning business yung half day lang or per hour.

My condition for my husband if he wants to buy a big house is kailangan madami maid kasi hindi na kaya maintain kung wala.

Nope. My back hinders me from doing a lot of household work. Even washing the dishes, sumasakit likod ko pag medyo naka-bend ng konti. Even pagwawalis. Need talaga ang helper for us.
A little backreading won't hurt.

Kaya ko naman na walang driver kasi mas gusto ko naman na ako magdrive pero hindi ko kaya na walang helper kasi hindi ako marunong magluto. I can clean the house and take care of the baby but with my business, hindi ko na maasikaso lahat.

I wish my Roomba na dito. Malaking tulong ang automatic vacuum cleaner!
Sa ngayon, magulo din ang house namin pero ayoko ng isipin yon. Basta pa isa isa ang house work para di ma stress out. Ang lunch and dinner, yung madali lang lutuin.

Goodluck with that  ;D  That would be a very rare combination.  Puro tamad mga maids ngayon pero for sure may makikita ka rin pero talagang referral ang pinakamaayos.

More than 1 year na kameng walang yaya and we are both working parents. In fairness buhay pa naman kame :D I agree, kelangan tulong tulong. My 4-year old daughter can do small chores and can clean up after herself. She knows I get upset when there's mess. Mabilis pati ako kumilos. Ayoko na ng maid, magastos na, nasstress pako. Pampagulo pa ng schedule and routine ko na naiayos ko na over time.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

paano ba yun isang downside na wala kang helper is yung pag gusto namin ng quality time ng asawa ko. mula nung pinanganak ang daughter ko year 2011, 3x lang kami nakapag date ng di kasama anak namin. at nangyari yon nito lang Dec 2014-Feb this year. Sayang kasi wala na kami hh di naman kami makaalis. akala ko noon matutuloy na ang dream ko makapag family outing kami kasi after 2 years bumalik yung hh ko pero ayun nabuntis nitong March kaya halos 1 month ng wala..

nakakaya ko naman chores,minsan lang pag nakakakita ako pics ng family outing nalulungkot ako kasi naka plano na kami this Summer. Ayaw naman namin muna kuha kapalit dahil sa sala lang ang tulugan niya, unlike ng nabuntis kong hh matagal na namin kilala. kung sa iba panibagong adjustment na naman lalo na mag aral na sa pasukan yung bata. parang wala na kaming quality time ng partner ko,never na nagkaroon. ikakasal pa naman kami civil wed wala taga bantay. kaya di na ako nagpa book sa kung saan saan, dito lang sa clubhouse yung ceremony kasi wala bantay yung bata. napakiusapan ko hh ko na pag kinuha ang mga gamit niya dito sa araw mismo ng civil wed para mabantayan naman yung bata...

when we're abroad, wala kaming helper, ni hindi rin naming in-attempt kumuha. Mother ko lang ang naging help ko sa lahat ng bagay. Mula sa pag-aalaga ng kids ko, pagluluto, minsan sa paglinis ng bahay at paglalaba. Sobrang thankful ko dahil nandyan ang mother ko.

Now that we're in Pinas, sobrang hirap pa rin humanap ng helper. We're actively looking for one for 1 year already pero waley pa rin. Meron nakuha before kaso after a week lumayas na. Ka-stress lang. So ayun, still my mom is helping us, mas kampante pa ako dahil alam kong mas naalagaan ang mga babies ko. Kaya lang I need to clean the house, cook for the family, do the laundry and everything else pag may free time.

I can say KAYA naman mabuhay ng walang househelp, but sana if may makukuhang matino, eh mas maganda.
Believing in God's perfect plans..

Nung nsa pinas pa kami, although wala pa kami anak, my mom used to visit me 1-2 times a week and do the laundry kasi pang night shift ako sa work, while hubby is in abroad. Ngayong nasa abroad na kami pareho ni hubby, ako na lahat, laba, luto, linis. Ok lang naman kasi maliit lang yung flat naming, pero mahirap talaga before yung paglalaba, di ko talaga keri. kapag naglaba ako, plastado nako afterwards hahaha.
This is me, I am lovingly and uniquely created by God and I love me! Lol

kahit walang driver, okay lang. actually, mas gusto ko wala.

regarding sa helper, kung sakit lang sa ulo, wag na. mas ok kahit di ganon kaayos ang bahay.
try to set up a system with the kids and hubby . easier said than done, i know pero kaya natin ;)
