After adding " getting a Maid" to my wishlist of 2011 I got a few comments from people who are totally against the idea. And well i also refused to get a maid before as i want to be the one raising my kids and i dont want to bring a stranger into my home and take away my freedom and let her in on our private lives. its impossible to stop someone who lives with you from knowing details about your personal private life. And ofcourse the idea of trusting someone with your kids even for a few minutes alone. Its a scary world out there and i have heard a lot of scary stories about maids and i believe it is risky and you can never know a person well enough to trust them. I dont even trust some family members to be left alone with my daughter.
i know that if you leave ur kids with a maid thier arabic will be more like pilipeeno arabic or indonesian arabic. "ana fe 7ubii inta mama" translation " i love u"
I remember the part time maid that used to come clean my house always shared unwanted gossip she would say " haada mama fe bayt awal sawee fighting ma3 baabaa 3asan howa fe shurub kteeer"
translation " the lady in the house i was cleaning before had a fight with her husband and he was drinking"
I dunno.. i still am not sure if i will get a maid one day but its risky and truth is sometimes you are so desperate that you are willing to take your chances. Mommies out there what are your experiences and thoughts on this subject?
p.s. in this cartoon i am not beating up the maid i am protecting her from the drama :P and yes i usually am this tall next to any maid. actually not only maids lots of people.
