I work part-time and have 2 children. I am able to work around my schedule because I work 12-6 Mondays and Thursdays and then 8-4 on Saturday. So the days of the week aren't too hectic. I am able to get them half way through their school day on the days I work. I then have a college student come to my house and sit with them from 12:30 to 3:30 to help them finish up. My husband works for a junior college and we actually live on campus. He comes home at 11:30 for lunch so that I can leave for work. He goes back from lunch when the sitter shows up at 12:30. He gets off work at 3:30. It's a system that has worked pretty well for us. The only problem I have come across is the majority of last year a co-worker of mine was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and it threw our whole routine into total chaos! I was pulling a lot of crazy days and hours. When she finished her treatments, life returned to normal for about 3 months. Then she announced she was pregnant with twins! But, thank goodness she had the babies during the summer months and my schedule just recently returned to normal just in time to start school this fall. We'll see how long normalcy lasts....I just cross my fingers and hope! teeheehee!
