For the past seven years, we've been blessed to have someone come in to help with housework once every two weeks. In the very beginning I was a working mother with two children under three, and five months along in my third pregnancy. I needed the help! And she was a Godsend. Many times over those seven years, particularly since I started staying home full time, I felt guilty about spending the money on something I was home to do myself. But if I was honest with myself it took everything I had (or so I thought) to stay on top of the day-to-day house cleaning, not to mention our busy homeschooling schedule. When a veteran homeschooling Mom expressed to me once that if she could do anything different it would have been to hire a housecleaner no matter what sacrifices needed to be made, I felt a little easier spending the money. "I need this," I thought. And indeed it has been so very worth it.
