    Default Anyone managing to work from home with a young child?

    Just wondering if its at all possible to work from home and have a 1 year old at home too!? Is it possible to get any work done?! Im trying to delay my youngest going in childcare until he's 2 if possible, i only work 2 days a week as a graphic designer and the in-laws are happy to have a day babysitting but thats it. Am i crazy for even contemplating it!? ha ha!

    I work from home with 2 littlies and have done since Ds1 was born (he is now nearly 4 and Ds2 is 19mo). I do 6hrs per week from home, spread over an hour or two each day when the kids are sleeping or at night. I also do 1 day in the office so do get the chance to play catch up if I've not gotten enough done at home. I do accounts payable and receivable, Some of my work has definite deadlines, some can be done at a more leisurely pace. It can be very tough to do large chunks of work, which is why I break it up, but working from home with a child (or 2!) is definitely doable.
