  1. When I first started caring for children I was about 9 years old. People are always amazed when I tell them this, but truth be told all I wanted to do was spend my time around children, and what better way to do that then by playing with them while their mother’s got stuff done. At first I just played with the toddlers, but in time the mothers would start to teach me how to feed the baby, change them, even but them to bed. By the time I was 14 I had been working with all sorts of kids on a weekly basis for 5 years! I will forever be thankful for the mother’s who let me come be a mother’s helper for them. I learned a lot and I am sure it was nice for them to get a break!

  2. I know that not everyone live near, or has a great relationship with, their own parents….but isn’t this what GRANDPARENTS are for!/? LOL I think my mother would flip if i paid for someone to come spend time with my kids, I just call her and she comes running over to help out! She has even flown across the state to help me out when we were stationed in SD for 3 years! 🙂

  3. I think a mother’s helper is a great idea. I work from home, and my fiance works 3rd shift, so he has to sleep in until about 4:00 PM. I’ve recently started the process of looking for someone to help out once a week for about that chunk of time, three to four hours, so I can get some extra work or household projects done.
