Yours, Mine and Ours.

Did you all read the article about Bridie Nolan in the Sydney Morning Herald last week?
Outsourcing
Surely the childcare and cleaning should be considered joint costs with her partner or is he smiling so broadly in that photo because he has figured out how to have 5 children, two incomes and a zero dollar childcare bill?
Sigh.

I hear you.
I also found it odd that they lumped the cost of her executive assistant and researcher into the outsourcing costs.
There is a clear distinction between professional and personal outsourcing.
The 'professional outsourcing' of an EA and researcher is really just a completely normal cost of running a legal practice. They are business expenses!

Oh absolutely, Kris. I couldn't agree more.
