Hired Help Could Not Have Done a Better Job

Posted on: February 26, 2012

Who doesn’t need help with a new baby? Yes, it’s true, all mamas of newborns can use an extra pair of hands. When it’s your first baby, it’s just all so overwhelming and new, and it really seems impossible. And when it’s your second those extra hands help oh so much with the the first little babe who is now at least two or so – not to mention the laundry, the cooking and the cleaning (that is if you’ve got really good help, like the kind that took residence at my place this past January!) Thank you Mom (AKA Gramma)!

Yes my mom swooped in from Singapore to help out while we adjusted to life as a family of four. She was pretty much my personal assistant for almost a month taking on even the most menial of tasks, say for example when new baby Stella projectile pooped on my bedsheets at close to 1 in the morning. Why was I changing her on my bed? Convenience of course. She sleeps in a bassinet only about a foot away! Why was I changing her without a change pad? Who knows…

Anyway, once I saw what had projected onto my white sheets, I gently rapped on the neigbouring door…just to relay the situation. But out of bed pops Superwoman, alert and ready to take charge: “Oh dear! Well, I’ll go do the laundry then.” In my head I was both surprised and delighted – afterall I hadn’t knocked on her door to ask her to do the laundry, but that leads me to wonder why had I knocked at such an early hour? In my head it was merely to tell a sympathetic listener what had happened. And the result, sheets without permanent stains. Thank you Mom. Thank you.

Note: Below is a series of photos taken when Niko was learning to bake cookies, but mostly just reaping the rewards of doughy beaters and bowls, and the final product of course.
