Ill write what i wrote before:
I work 5 days a week 8 hour days at a sewerplant. I like my job, and i would love to be home with G. But I cant.
Hubby works the same. And its OKAY. I am so tired of letting people try to make ME feel bad because I am doing what is best for my family. Sorry for the rant. Its a touchy subject for me lol!

I stay home with the kids, but also work part-time from home (accounting/auditing). I only work 5-10 hours a week depending on the week and the kids, but it keeps me current in my field and gives me a chance to use my brain and degrees. I think it is definitely a sanity saver for me!

DH works full-time...hours vary from only working a couple hours a day to being gone for months at a time (military).

I am a SAHM, looking into being a WAHM

Scott is an Apprentice Chef at a boutique luxury hotel [The George]. He works Tuesday - Saturday, 4.30pm til as late as 3.00am some nights.

We're actually staying there over night tomorrow, and get a free 10 course dinner & full-blown breakfast as well. We're staying in the Premium Executive Room!! I've NEVER stayed in a Hotel I'm so excited!! He has to do this as part of his induction; having to report back his experience from a guests perspective

I have been thinking about starting my own business from home, but I don't know what to do with Eve. I don't want to send her to daycare, and she wants all my attention throughout the day. I'm exhausted by night LOL...

I work at home, I'm IBCLC, I have a home office. I am in practice with a Midwife group though and they send me their BFing clients. My DH is a pilot, he works at a college as a flight instructor currently (he is a commercial pilot).

I voted SAHM, but I work too. I work on Thursdays from 8:30-3:30. My MIL watches Avery on those days. I work as a support worker doing in-home counselling sessions with pregnant women and new moms who are not in the best situations.

I also run my own bookkeeping business from home, but I only have 2 clients so that only brings in about $350 a month. I don't want any more clients than that.

I am also a full time student working on my masters degree (counselling psychology), but it is a blended program so I do the coursework online, I have to go to some stuff on campus in the summer and then I will have an 8 month practicum at the end.
