Update lang ako mga sis. Umalis na ko sa project ko and waiting for a new project. Hirap talaga kapag napag initan kina kasi kahit walang reason masama na ang tingin syo. Sa work ko ngayon more on aral lang kaso mahigpit sila sa oras ng pagpasok. Ang naging solusyon namin is ako ang papasok ng maaga (since needed) then si hubby ang mag-aasikaso sa mga anak namin. Aalis sya ng bahay ng mga lunch time. Buti mas understanding ang team and manager ni hubby. SInce ako ang mas maagang pumasok, mas maaga din akong nakakauwi. Pagkauwi ko ako naman ang mag-aasikaso sa mga anak namin. Pag uwi ni hubby minsan tulog na yung mga anak namin or matutulog na. After nun tsaka palang kami magdidinner dalawa.

Yan muna ang adjustment na nagawa namin ngayon. Still doing some plans para mas maging ok ang lahat.

Hi sis!  Me din, almost the same ang situation.  Both of us are working and so no one will be able to take care of my baby.  Except si lola.  The problem is.  May mga gawain si lola na hindi kami sang ayon.  Anyway, we are currently looking for a yaya.  Ang hirap kumuha.  Yung yaya ngayon ni baby, is stay out and temporary lang hanggang makakuha kami ng permanent yaya.  Although I see my daughter 4 days in a week, iba pa din kung everyday ko siya nakikita or everynight.  Miss na miss ko siya kapag nandun sa lola niya.  Pinagpray ko na lang talaga na magkaroon na kami ng trustworthy na yaya and mamahalin si baby.   ;D

Hi mga sis! If i may share also our experience re this yayaless situation.. Early this year nagpaalam si yaya na aalis na, and we let her, so, naiwan is ako, si husband at ang 5 yrs old naming daughter. Good thing is dun namin inenrol si daughter sa skul near our workplace although malayo sa house namin, so everyday kasama namin sya umaalis ng house early in d morning n we just drop her by at her skul and then pick her up after her classes during lunchtime. Then she'll just stay in my office in the afternoon until we go home. So, kahit nawala si yaya, it was not a big deal on us kc practically nasa akin naman talaga si daughter after her class. And this continues even we found out later na preggy n pla ako with our 2nd baby. Still, we managed to cope up, konting adjustment na nga lang muna sa part ni hubby at sinolo niya mga household chores due to my condition. Nung malapit na lang ako manganak saka kami kumuha ng bagong yaya although naging stressful dn in d process. But let me share to you sisters na had it not for our new baby, d na talaga sana kami kukuha ng yaya, we appreciate our regained privacy then, at si daughter, natutong asikasuhin sarili niya :)

I don't think na kaya niyo na walang yaya sis.
Dati akala ko kaya ko. Pero hindi din pala.
Both me and my husband is working.
Tapos, biglang umuwi sa province yung yaya ng anak ko kasi namatay tatay niya.
Until now hindi parin bumabalik.
nahirapan kami sa set up namin.
First week sa gabi work ko and si hubby naman sa araw.
Si hubby hindi nahihirapan kasi matutulog nalang sila sa gabi,
Pero ako sobrang hirap. kasi kailangan ko din matulog and hindi naman pwede na tulog din siya buong araw.
Parang 3hrs na yung maximum na sleep ko everyday.
Every week kailangan ko mag absent at least 1 day para lang makabuo ako ng tulog kasi kung hindi parang hihimatayin ako sa office. hehe
Sobrang hirap sis.
I suggest you get a yaya kahit hindi stay in. Para lang may katulong ka since both of you are working.

Hi Sises, I am a working mom and my husband is working too. we have two kids who are really young 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 the thing is both our yayas left already after 2 years with us. The latest yaya that we got from the agency was horrible so we have to let her leave as well. The thing is i always get problems with the yayas i get from this agency and would not refund our payment. they are nice in the beginning but as soon as you sign the contract already bahala ka na. they can't even help you pag ngka problem sa yaya. At this time I left the kids with my grandma and asked her housemaid to take care of the kids while im still waiting for replacement. its been a month now and the agency still could not provide me with replacement. Any advice? is there anyone who has an idea where i can get a reliable nanny? thanks.

We have the same situation sis.  Ang sakin lang single mom ako and just renting a room na malaki aman for us.  I can't afford to rent an apartment and can't find a trustworthy yaya. 

This coming year, ipapasok ko na sya sa school so what i did is to find a school na malapit sa office so that i could fetch him after school.  I asked my boss if i could bring my son after his school since i don't have yaya and allowed me to do so.

Am still looking for a trustworthy yaya kasi pag may mga days na wala syang pasok kasi umuulan someone will gonna take care of him.

Talk to your husband.  Am sure you'll gonna figure what would be the best for your family na hindi aman magsacrifice yung isa sa inyo na umalis ng work kasi sa panahon ngayon dapat tulungan ang mag-asawa.
