Any other mommas working multiple jobs to support their family?
How many children do you have?

I have one full time job, 45 hours a week, working Mon - Thursday and Saturday... I also have one part time job working 3 days a week, days vary.. I never have a day off from both jobs.. I always work at at least one job every day..

But, it pays bills, gets my girls what they want and need, and I still get to spend time with them..

I only work one job - full time Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm - I guess I'm lucky that one job provides well enough for my family.  My daughter is already frustrated enough that I"m not a stay at home mom ... I can't imagine working 2 jobs.

I have 2 kids and 2 jobs. I work M-F 7:30am-4:30pm, then T, Th, Fr evenings as a server, Saturday all day as a server. Most Sundays I get off though, which I am very lucky to have. I have to say good for you for doing what is necessary to provide for your kids!

Have you thought about working as a server? I only mention it because I make an average of $15 an hour take home. I'm not sure it would be the same where you live, but might be better than what you are making now.
