I think I expected it to happen naman , and it did - but it was sooner than I expected. It actually just hit me that my Connor will be yaya-less (until I find a replacement) when we leave for Tokyo next month! Stress levels!! *Warning - ranting Yaya Blues post.. So, be warned!! When I gave birth to Connor last year - I still hadn't found help yet. So, for the first week or so - Connor slept with me. It was such an enjoyable experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything. After that time - I was able to find a Yaya for him. When I interviewed Yaya Mae on the phone, she seemed eager to work. She said she had experience because she has five kids (yes, you read it right - 5!) So I believed her and hired her. I honestly don't believe so much in interviews because some are good with interviews but are really bad when it comes to performance. I told her I'd give her a try. *Warning - Loooong detailed post ahead!!
