To share a bit more on us: We only ever hired one helper who stayed with us for 10 years until today. Now she is going back to the Philippines to rejoin her husband. I think she stayed with us so long as she likes the kids and feels that our environment is good and generous
I can also describe our days a bit:
Our kids go to school at 7am and so our helper gets up earlier to prepare breakfast and lunch box. Our kids like more than just cereal so she makes pancakes, dumplings, congee or rice cakes for breakfast. For lunch we want them to eat healthy so always some main dish with vegetables. Our current helper loves to cook so she always try some new things. Not everything the kids like but that is ok to try.
After the kids leave for school, she will do cleaning (bathrooms, vacuum, etc) and laundry/ironing. My wife likes to eat a brunch at home before she leaves for work so she prepares that and then she goes for marketing if needed or does some more cleaning work and maybe take a break before preparing dinner that we eat at 6.30pm. For dinner we like to eat well. After dinner is cleaning up the kitchen and that’s it.
