I work mainly from home office, and I had planned to resume work next March, but God has something else in store for me. You see, I have just found the perfect home office position, but I have to start this September already. My boy will be 5 months old. I had planned for him to go to a child minder starting next year, so i'm frankly in a bit of a dilemma right now.
Aupairs have pros and cons. I'm not sure many 24 year olds can cope with a baby(I will be working from home most of the time, which is good)
I also think it might be interesting to get to know someone else, but I'm not sure if I can stand to have an extra person in my home for an extended period.
A definite positive is the fact that we could try to get an English speaking person, which would help our efforts to teach the children English.
I wonder if there are granny aupairs fom England? That might be the perfect solution to our problem.
