I used to get embarrassed to say this, but I'm getting over it: We have a maid.
I don't know why I feel guilty saying that. Maybe because I work from home and have no children and I should be fully capable of cleaning my own house?
We started using her over a year ago when we were both working crazy hours. While I'm fine at putting things away, I am NOT great at deep cleaning. Mopping floors, scrubbing bathrooms, eliminating the mounds of dog hair in our home.... I'm not the best at all that. I got her name from my friend Kelli because we were having a big party.... she came once and I knew we had to keep her forever. She comes twice a month and I don't regret one minute of it. I am well aware that this is a TOTAL luxury and I am so blessed to be able to have Maria!
Most of the time when she comes I am not here. A few months ago, I came home to see my ultrasound photo taped to my bathroom mirror. She left me a note saying "so happy for you and baby!" and ever since then she has been going above and beyond.
Today, I came home from the grocery store to find this:
She made me a diaper cake. IS SHE NOT THE SWEETEST!?
Honestly, I've gotten to know her and I so enjoy visiting with her and hearing her story. I hope we can continue bless her the way she has blessed us! (I love to give her presents too!)
