Many people have to or decide to put their children in daycare. When my husband and I first started dating, he worked nights. He spent most days with his son, then my husband's mother would get him to bed when DH was at work. His day off, he would put his son into daycare so that he could clean house and pay bills and run errands. He did it one day a week and that really helped him out. The daycare was willing to take him once a week, it gave SS some social interaction, and gave DH a day to get all of his stuff done. He spent 6 days a week and two nights a week with him, so he was still getting lots of time with him. It was a great balance for everyone. Then he switched to days and I was working days and he went into daycare full time, but we still spent every night together as a family.
