if you have young children and work outside of home, and you manage to leave them out of childcare...

what type of job do you have? A night time job would be most ideal for me since SO works during the day, and we really cant afford daycare or someone to watch ds (he's 2 1/2). Only types of jobs w/ that ideal schedule would be waitressing (but i have a bad back, no experience, not too mention some places ask for other shifts to be worked, not just the one requested) and a 3rd shift (but working night to dawn then being a mom all day would absolutely exhaust me).

  • It sounds like you would be better off cutting expenses, going back to school, and getting a better paying job. Good luck!
