Look, you want to be a martyr and not get a maid in Dubai, that's your choice. As is it my choice to get a maid! I don't let her look after my kids all day, she helps me. I don't treat her like a slave, I don't pay minimum wage, I don't make her work unfixed hours, I don't ask her to do anything that I wouldn't do! I get her to free up some valuable time so that I can actually enjoy my kids and spend proper quality time with them! She does my housework, ironing, window cleaning etc so that I can take my kids out, play jigsaws etc and home cook for them. She allows me to do school runs without having to drag a sleeping baby around with me. She babysits so that the children having a loving familiar face so that my husband and I can maintain a date night and a healthy loving relationship. You don't want a maid fine! We live in Dubai where it is rare to have grandparents and other family to help out. You wanna do it all yourself and juggle kids, thats fine, just please don't try to make me feel bad about accepting a helping hand!
