I have worked full time my whole life but I have been a sahm since Dec of last year. I'm going back to work after Spring break but my husband and I agreed that part time would be ideal.

Right now I work 40-55 hours a week at my day job as an auditor. And I work about 25 hours a week at a part time job in the evening doing taxes.

SO works about 40 hours a week at his day job as a chef at a diner; and 30-40 hours a week at his second job weighing trucks.

Both of our second jobs are seasonal.

I work full time and a sahm. I work form home full time. It isn't too bad with working from home and kids. I did chose the 4-11 shift. This way I can do all the mom stuff and I can also work. On my breaks and lunch, I feed kids, help with any left over homework that we didn't get to finish before work. Working from home has so many benefits. 1.) NO gas, traveling 2.) so set work attire 3.) No baby sitters 4.) Making money for my family. I make $9 an hour. When you include the benefits above, it works out to feel like your making more, because there is no added cost to working.

Yep I work full-time from home. It's the best job I ever had. I get the joys of being a SAHM, but actually contributing financially to the family. Best feeling ever :)
