  • When I worked, my DH and I did opposite shifts. I slept for a few hours when I got home, then got up and tended to the baby and the house. But I didn't work for very long after DD was born, so I don't know much else that might be helpful. lol

  • We've had a babysitter situation when we both worked the same shift, it was okay...but we decided to save money, I went to nights so I do most of everything around the house work nights, go to school (which now I have to withdraw)....and it has been this way for almost 1.5 years now...its hectic...and its not always pretty but its helping us save money and I do get to spend more time with my kiddos!!

  • How about your husband being the person that helps you with everything?

  • Contact a community college, and sign up for a GED prep class.

  • all i can say is its gonna be tough but us as woman are strong enough to overcome. money is money. we need what we can get to support our babies. have a sit down with your husband and who ever might be babysitting and see how it all pans out. good luck!!!

  • I work M-F 8:00-4:30. DH has been unemployed and a SAHD since May 2010. He has a new job starting next month. The older kids go to school and then to aftercare. The youngest will go to daycare. I do all my laundry on weekends. I use the crockpot a lot. You just do what you gotta do.

  • Ask your kids and hubby to help out and support you as you work and get your GED. Remind them that you getting a GED is good for the entire family.
