How many hours do you work?

How many hours a week do you work?  What do your kids do while you're working?

I work 40 hours/week, but it's spread out over 6 days every week.  My kids are older (teens) so if they're not in school they can take care of themselves while I'm at work.

 I am paid for 37.5 hours a week. Monday to Friday.

My son is in school while I work, than after school program. In the summer he is at summer camp.

Other days off from school (teacher planning day) is a day I request off.

Snow days I may take off or he goes to his father or snow day camp.

We are both off work/school for most major holidays.

I usually am the one to call out on snow and sick days. Their dad has them eow from after school Friday until Sunday at 7.

 I work 40 hours at my office job, Mon-Friday 8-4.

I am starting my own little side thing and I work that about 15 hours a week.

I work 7.5/day 37.5 hours a week. 3 teens and a 10 yo so they are pretty self sufficient.

I work 40 hours a week. Sometimes a few hours more. There are a few times throughout the year I have to work until 8pm. I work M-F. My daughter goes to daycare around the corner from where I work. She is 21 months. I also work for the school district so I don't have to work when the kids are out of school and I also get the same breaks they do like Spring, Summer, Christmas and Thanksgiving.

40 m-f.

I pretty much have the same schedule as the kid. So it works out great.

Exactly the same for me as well.

I work 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday from 9 to 5. My boys are at school during most of my work day. My mom picks up my youngest son from school at 2:30 and watches him for me until I get home.
