    Mine are 6 & 3 and I'm a SAHM. Child care costs make it pointless to go back to work.

    I am a single parent of a 6 and 5 yr old. I study full time and until a few weeks ago also worked part time. I signed an employment contract to start working full time a few weeks ago in a fed gov job. Now just waiting for HR to sort out all their side so I have a starting date. Next uni semester I will go part time to cope.

    I have a very supportive partner that lives the next suburb over.

    I may work four days a week, but as a school teacher, with the amount of stuff we do for work out of hours, it may as well be 5 days. I tend to spend a lot of evenings doing schoolwork, and sometimes have to work Sunday afternoons to get stuff ready for school. I know those teachers who are full time do far more out of hours so glad I have that extra day...

    I have 2 children-a 2 year old and an almost 1 year old.

    I took a voluntary redundancy while I was on maternity leave for DS2 from my job that I had worked for the past 3.5 years. As long as we can financially cope with one income, I have no plans to go back to work until the kids start school.

    I have one 3.5 year old and work approx 3 days. (Times/days/hours vary depending how many properties I have) in real estate sales - I was a SAHM for 3 years and only went back to work because they needed me and to pay for DS school fees !

    1 DD, 18 months. Technically I do casual work, available 3 days a week, but I only had a few days work this term (relief teaching). Started back at the beginning of the year, when DD was 16 months.

    I'm currently trying to figure out whether to try for more relief work in other schools or do open uni study to get into something different. Ideally I'd love a part time job with no take home work, but have no idea how to go about that right now.

    My dd is 4 and I work full time, as does dh. I am rubbish at juggling work, house, parenting etc so my house is a shambles, I look about 100 but my dd is happy and thriving at day care.

    Ds is 7,Dd is 6mths.i worked full time from when ds was 1 through to mat leave with dd.
    I just started back working weekends so I can still spend most of my time with the kids and helping at school but also contribute to the household income without it all being zapped away in day care fees.
