Vincent has Maid Problems

If you haven't read any of the Vincent Donaldson, I recommend starting here.

Vincent has been continuing to work on his publishing career, but kids and work make that sort of a difficult endeavor.

With so many kids (four now!). Vincent decided to take out a loan from the bank so that he could build an addition on their house (a new bedroom for the kids).

Thankfully, some of the kids were getting old enough where they could start to occupy themselves and each other, for periods of time.

Time moves so quickly, and soon it was time for Lillian to age up. 

Her transition to elder would mean she would not be able to have any more children.

The Donaldson's hired a maid to help get the housework done. Even with Lillian retiring, the four children and the housework were more than she could handle. 

Unfortunately, the second maid spent most of his time sitting down or watching television. At the end of the day, the house would still be a mess. 

Lillian tries to give each of the children individual attention so that they feel loved.

Now he's reading a book instead of working. How many breaks does this guy need a day?

Things were getting too cluttered in the old nursery, and Lillie would soon be old enough to need a real bed. They really needed to get the new nursery built soon.

Eventually, Vincent and Lillian gave up on the old made and hired a new one. This guy handled all the major problems, and then organized the books. I think he's a keeper!
