    Default Do you work?

    How many children do you have of what age and do you have a part time job, full time job or work from home?

    I have DS 3, DD 18 months and am pregnant with #3

    I have my own business, thought working from home is easier but I find myself working longer hours and more stressful than ever! But I can't afford to stop.

    Love to hear how everyone else does it.! Thanks!

    I have two children, aged 8 and 4, and work full time. DH also works full time. It's a real juggle sometimes but somehow everything everything falls into place. I'm lucky I have a flexible, understanding work place and I think that make a real difference. I couldn't work full time if I didn't have that and a supportive husband.

    I have 3 kids, almost 6, almost 4 and 10 months. I worked nights after DS1 was born, 5 nights a week, finishing at 2am until DS2 was born when DS1 was 2. DS1 didnt go to daycare and was a horrible sleeper. Looking back I have no idea how I did it, especially right up until 37 weeks pregnant.

    I worked from home for 6 months when DS2 was about 18 months old. I had to stop because he was very high needs and it was too stressful for us both.

    I am going back to work nights in August, as a bartender and gaming assistant. I am looking forward to it, I miss working but would be lieing if I said I wasnt stressed about how exhausted I am going to be.

    I have one DD, aged 2yrs 5mths, and I work 4 days/week. I have a permanent full time position so can go back to full time whenever I am ready. However, currently hoping for #2 and then I will take a year's leave and probably less days when I initially return to work after that
