How It Feels After 10 Years Without A Nanny


This year marks the 10th year since we decided to raise our kids without a yaya or nanny. It’s an adventure in itself and it can be quite taxing at times, but overall we wouldn’t have it any other way. I am grateful that my husband is such a hands-on dad who is an expert in diaper-changing and potty training. Early on, we worked out a system with our careers so that majority of our time is spent with the kids.

When we first embarked on this journey, our families voiced their protests. Why don’t you want to get help? Someone even commented: “Sayang! You’re wasting your talents (staying home for your kids.)” That did not really deter us, because we know that the investment we’re making in our kids’ lives will eventually bring rewards. Somewhere along the way, we’ve also heard encouraging words from older people who told us we’re doing the right thing. They would look at us wistfully and say with a little sadness in their voices that how they wish they could have spent more time with their kids and nurtured the relationship while they were young.

Until money, TIME cannot be earned back nor turned back. And thankfully because of technology you don’t have to sacrifice your family to be able to earn a decent income.

Prayerfully consider this and ask God for wisdom on how you can spend more time with your kids. It will make all the difference.

    1. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    1. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. _Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV Bible)
