I guess I have a very small village consisting of daycare, the occasional assistance from my parents, probably twice a year. I also have a friend who has babysat our DD about five times - she's 3.5. I guess I get emotional support as well from other friends and other mothers from Mothers group and daycare, rather than physical assistance. I actually feel bad asking for help, although I am sure all of these people would do so.
I like to think we are going ok without a big, established village. It's only really now, with DD starting preschool next year am I feeling the lack of a village - Id love for her to have a grandparent/aunt/family friend to be able to look after her on school hols, pick her up or drop her off. While the lack of childcare options has meant that DH and I rarely get a date, I feel like we get enough time together for things to be ok.
