I was in college when my daughter was first born. She was born just a few weeks before I started classes and after that semester I took a break. It's been a year and now I am more than ready and excited to finish my degree for my RN. It seems like a lot of you are studying Nursing. :)

I'm attending school and working part-time while I have a one year old son and a five year old daughter. It gets pretty hectic with my daughters school schedule and mine...but we make it work

I do, I'm currently earning my BS in health and nutrition. It's tough especially now that I have added an hour of workout time to my day. But I don't have it as hard as some people, or my husband.

I am going to the community college where I work.

It is hard bc I rely on financial aid, and if I do not get my aid in time, I can not go to school...
not looking so good for this semester!

I graduated July 29,2010 and just passed my state board exam and am now an LPN. I was a single mother, paid for college myself, and worked bout 20-35 hrs per week during school. I thought I would die of exhaustion before I could finish, but I made it. I didn't even get child support until the very last semester, but that was when I needed it the most.

I am a first time mom, and going to grad school full time. Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who is able to schedule his job around my class schedule. It's crazy, and we rarely have a moment of down time together, but we make it work. Two more years, then I'll be done!

I started school online and working full time nights just before my son turned 1. Babysitters wasn't an option for us, so it was a greatful balance between husband and wife to make it work. You are going to have good days and bad days, but once you have a rhythem it will work!

I'm working full time and going to school online. I am a single mom, but I still live at home so my parents are a HUGE help. I don't know where I'd be without them. Yes, I'll be 28 this year, but thats the only way I'd be able to afford going to school. emoticon

I am currently trying to schedule my last three classes for my masters. After that, I am debating what I want to continue for as in Special Education Supervisor certificate, reading specialist, or both. All in all, I am lucky enough to say I like my job and will be completing these classes at a slow pace so I am able to spend as much time with my daughter as possible.

My son is going to be three months when I go back to school I am a little nervous about the lack of time I will have with him. I have been an on going student for over seven years. I work 40 hours with my little one. As it is I feel like I do not see him enough.

I'm in the first semester of a Ph.D. program and have a 10 month old son. Along with the glory of being a grad student I also teach classes and technically have a 65 hour a week appointment (fortuntaely I have yet to actually work that much in a single week). I have had a really hard time this semester keeping up with my work, and next semester I'm going to attempt keeping business hours as one of my profs suggested, working 9-5 and not doing anything over the weekends. We'll see how that goes. My son LOVES daycare, which really surprised me. I'm able to only have him in about 30 hours a week since it's on campus and I can take him out for walks and lunch during the day really easily.

I'm taking online classes. Took a long time to find a credited online program but I managed! So when I have classes things get very hectic around here. My guy has band practice 3 nights a week though so that gives me peace and quiet atleast 3 nights a week to study/get work done.

I'm currently going to school to get my bachelors in psychology. I'm a full time 5th year senior and I also work part time. Its tough balancing everything out and just as soon as i think I got things figured out it gets a little tougher. The best advice I would give someone is not to think about it, just do it. after a while it become a routine.

I am starting my Master's at the end of August, two weeks after I deliver my first. Luckily, I found an online program that allows me to do the work at my own pace and work on it whenever I can. We'll see how this goes, I have two classes scheduled for the fall, and then will use that as a guide to how many classes I can take in the spring.

I'm pregnant with my first and in school. When I deliver I still have a semester to go. I plan on a good babysitter. However, a lot of classmates of mine who have kids go to school part-time(usually classes two days out the week)and work full time the rest of the week. I guess a babysitter would work best and you still have time to be with your child by the time you get off work.
