  • it's tough to be honest...i'm due with my 4th....and I have to do online classes because we can't afford child care, and my DH is going to school fulltime, so he can't watch the kids. I do all my work at night when the kids are in bed, and I sneak in studying during their naps or when they're playing quietly and don't want my attention at the moment. It takes dicipline, but it's workable! xoxox GL mama!

  • I actually find it easier now with kids than I did before kids. I have motivation to do good and to stick to it now. Finding time is sometimes hard but I make sure I get it done when the kids are napping or in bed.

  • I always wondered too, as I would really love to take some classes. From my other mommy friends it really just depends on You, your family, your schedual. It can be very managable (enjoyable even) or extremely tough, all depending on your position and how you do things!

  • I went back for my MS when my kids were 5 years old and 3 months old. I didn't have any problems (but my school was online). If you want to do it, then do it. Don't let your kids be an excuse not to.

  • start with one class, and see how it goes!

  • You can go to night school, or take classes online. That way your kids will be looked after or you will be there to look after them while you study. NOTHING in this life worth having comes easily! EVER! Sacrafices have to be made in order to have the things you want. Go for it! If you can raise 4 boys, you can also go to college part time on the internet! College is WAY easier than kids!

  • i think if you want to do it, you'll find a way... if you're not into doing it.. then it will be hard and you'll find excuses... so do what works for you!
