I work from home as a programmer. I have to be available online from 8 to 5 and I have enough work to cover 40 hours per week. My boss doesn't know that I am also watching my kids because I am trying to save the money I would have to spend on daycare (approx 1200 per month). I have a 2 year old boy and a one year old girl. I put together a schedule for us so that I don't go crazy, but still, some days I get quite overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do on both fronts. I mostly work when my kids are sleeping, or when they are playing together or after my husband comes home from work, sometimes I also work at nights when I am really behind.
If you are in the same situation as I am, I would appreciate if you could give me some tips of things that have worked for you in trying to balance all this.
PS. This is only my 3rd week of doing this. My MIL helped me with the kids until now, but now she is gone until next year.
