She did have several very successful jobs for families who worked including a set of twins.

    What about just getting a house cleaner and then a part time nanny? I don't honestly see a need for a full time nanny if you're home all day. Maybe just someone to help with lunch, tidy up and then prep dinner.
    Yeah, I completely understand where your sister is coming from. I myself wouldn't like to be home when a nanny/cleaner is around. I'll definitely look into a part time nanny Any recommendations?

Just wanted to wish you good luck with your rehab- that pain is just so bad... I hope you can find some solution for your sciatica.
    Thank you littleriv. The Centenary Nannies website states that "The family can claim from the “Claim for Child Care Benefit for Registered Care”, a minimum of 0.49 cents per hour the Nanny is working. The maximum rebate is $2.96 per hour." I don't think we can get the 50% rebate back for nanny service, even if they are registered. However, I will call a few of the agencies and find out more.

    Thank you so much for your good wishes. I hope I can be pain free one day.

As you are going back to work in July I could see you having to extend that date if you suffer trying to do everything and cope with children as well. Good luck.
    Thank you sydneychick. I hope I find a superb nanny like you .

    Wow, really? Does this mean I need to have another kid or can I borrow one? Haha...

    I definitely want to explore this option, but don't think I can have another baby, even it is for the rebate.

    Thank you FlipFlop. I will definitely call Centrelink and see if I am eligible.
