Memoirs in Poetry(househelp)

I cannot have a househelp

That is akin to laziness

what chores can I not do?

Why should someone else cook my soup?

Why should someone else wash my clothes?

These were the rantings of a green horn new wife


I cannot have a househelp

Maybe someone who comes and goes

live in help is akin to laziness

Someone else can cut my onion while I cook

Someone can wash my clothe sometimes

But I can take care of my baby myself

Baby will be in daycare sometimes

These became the musings of a wife after a child


I have a househelp

That is akin to prudence

Even the proverbs 31 woman had servant girlS

Please cook the soup

Give the clothes to the laundry man

There are helps for a reason

This is now the sermon of a wife after three.
