    Yes, I'm so lucky to receive help from my mum. She takes Ds1 to school and picks him up twice a week and looks after Ds2 for one day a week. She lives under 10min away which makes it so handy. If I have a school meeting or dentist appointment she's available to mind the kids. I don't ask her to mind the kids on a Saturday night because I know she likes to go out with her brothers/sister but if Dh and I have a wedding or anniversary night out, she'll mind the kids. I'm so lucky.

    I get NO help from anyone... it's just hubby & I. We have nothing in the state so that's a reason. However when family do visit, they don't help anyway. So yeh

    My mum is a bit limited in her movements but when it comes to DS she jumps at the chance, I also have sisters that are willing to drive 40mins to an hour or so to help out if I really need it, I'm the youngest of a giant family that all have grown up kids so everyone is a bit smitten with the new baby. I am however moving away from all my people so that is going to be a real shock to the system.
