    I have 3 girls 10 , 4 and 2.5..I work anywhere from 25 to 50 hours a week depending on how busy we are..I'm a manager at a pub so very busy but am I lucky to be able to finish most days by 4 and do one day a week in the office doing accounts etc and I finish at 1 that day..I also get sundays off which is good..my dp works full time on night shift which makes it hard if the kids are unwell and waking constantly as we both are tired. But with that I only put the girls in daycare 2 days a week for miss 2.5 and 3 for miss 4 so we don't spend our whole wage on daycare.
    I love my job and ive worked hard to get to my position otherwise I'd find a way to not work so much

    I have 4 kids (8, 5, 3 & 8mo) and work 2 days a week. I consult as a lawyer for a large infrastructure carrier. After 20 years in law firms I never want to go back but enjoy working as a consultant. My employer is incredibly flexible (I am only physically in the office 10am til 2pm) but always available by phone outside of those hours. I earn over six figures a year doing less than 2 days work which is one big reason why I do it. But it's not a job that I love. After having #3 I wanted to do something completely different but the reality is we need to pay mortgages and school fees so I'm back in law.

    I have 3 children aged 8, 6 & 4 & work part time in marketing 2 days a week...the balance is just right for us.

    I have two kids aged 7 and 4. I run a business. I average 22 hours a week. Every week is different, some weeks I work 40 hours, some 10.

    Now that both kids are at school I finally feel like I'm coping. Since DS was born it's been a juggling act of epic proportions, but there was no option of walking away (need the $$). The love and support of DH, help from my Inlaws and winging it have been my coping strategies.
