we've recently hired a maid so that i can get out and do more, look for a job, go out at night with my husband, spend qualilty time with my daughter and dogs. we decided to hire now so that the dogs are familiar with her before i head off for the summer. anyway she is really great, started a week early and didnt want paid for first week ( i of course will pay her) . my daughter loves her and so far she is perfect in everyway. my problem is i cant let go of doing things. i still like to do bath and bed time and feeding the dogs myself, and no way is anyone else cooking for me, my maid looks at me like i am crazy, but i just want her to clean and babysit when needed, think i may be a bit ocd though, she offered to take my daughter to park this evening and i agreed this time, but while they were out i cleaned, and it felt great! even though house is spotless, i still have this urge to do everything myself. i've lived on my own since i was 16, so may take a while to adjust and learn to relax and enjoy the fact i dont have to do all the running around. think my maid will have some adjusting to do too, she even thought she should come with me on the nursery run and that i could just wait in the car. anyone else had this problem or am i on my own here? just got the little one off to bed, normally i'd be ironing now, might get a glass of this wine stuff i keep hearing about!
