I definitely have trouble asking for help and like to do everything myself. We are fortunate and could afford help like live-in nanny, regular nanny, regular babysitter, etc and yet we choose not to (we don't have any family around to help). Well, I guess I do. I think my hubs wouldn't mind if we had a babysitter more often. I often feel silly being tired/stressed when there is an easy solution of calling up a babysitter. I am so stubborn, though. Anyone else like this?

Perhaps some of the mommy guilt is also at play here...like I should be taking care of my daughter and not paying someone else to do it.
