Our Temporary Maid

The temp maid has been here about 9 days. She is alot better than my previous maid. Jesse accepted her even on her 1st day here. We were very surprise. It tooks her about 2 weeks to accept the previous one.

This maid definitely has more patience. She allows the children to play and mess around with the toys. Most of the time, the previous maid only switch on the television for the kids instead of taking out the toys for them to play.

She doesn't allow them to play with toys especially during their meals as she doesn't like to clean up the mess. And everytime during meal she will definitely nag Samuel. This temporary maid not only she doesn't nag him, she allows them to play even during their meals.

Mess by my children during meal

If my previous maid see the mess above, she will definitely scold and nag both Samuel and Jesse.
No matter how good this temp maid is, we are not allowed to take her as our full time maid as she has been transfered once before. The law here doesn't allow a maid to transfer twice within 2 years. I still have to wait for another new replacement full time maid.

Does your child play during meals? Do they sit still during meals? One of the reasons our maid leaves us is because our children are too difficult to handle. They do not listen and do not sit still when she tries to feed them.

I don't allow my children to play toys during meal time. By the way, it is easy to train them when they are small. By the way, u can also teach your children to keep the toys.

Most kids will usually run ard or play with toys during meal time. Mine is hooked on to the tv. Bad habit, I know. Sometimes it's easier to just let them do watever they like, as long as they finish their food.

Sher will not sit still when she eats. The only way to keep her still is the idiot box. I also cannot stand Sher's mischieve, esp now, during my confinement, what more my maid. It's good that ur previous maid left, rather than abuse your kids.
