  • I would suggest looking for a job where you could work a "B" shift type hours (like 3-11) if you could find one. you could get a sitter for them, and then sleep regular hours yourself, and then have the mornings and lunch with your girls.

  • PS I am PP. I have a degree and it's not worth crap. Having one will NOT increase your chances of getting a job.
