I work as an administrative assistant. I go to school for accounting at night and online. I have a 10 year old daughter. I’m planning a wedding. I’m running 4 endurance races this year. I also have a chronic medical condition that sometimes floors me.

It can be done its all about time management. If you want somehting quickly you might want to consider waiting tables. I made deccent money at that part time. You could also arrange to have hours in the evening when your SO is home so you dont have to worry about child care. Another option is a bank where the hours are consistant during the day.

We have an 18month old daughter, Fiance & I both work full-time. He works 10hr days + a 45min commute each way so it’s mainly me and my mini most of the time. I work as a front desk coordinator @ a wound care center, our office is pretty slow (clinic days are all day tuesday, a few hours wed, and thursday mornings) it’s really nice because I’m able to leave/come in late when needed because of our daughter. Fiance is off every Tuesday and my mom watches her on Wednesdays, so it’s nice that I don’t have to worry about her being sick on clinic days. The other 3 days she is at daycare, which runs us about $147 for 3 full days, I make much more than that in a week so it’s definitily worth it for her to go! But again, we get a break/cut because she’s with FI/my mom 2 days a week.

with my first baby boy, I did 3 units a semester/year fully online and worked 20 to 30 hrs per week all as a single mum for about a year and a half. I did have to wean him half way through onto the bottle cause the lack of sleep from night feeds was killing me. He slept much sounder when he got weaned from my boobies.. then I had to give up work and took a break from uni cause of my very high risk pregnancy with my darling daughter. 

I had to work to keep up my mortgage payments and put food in my bubs mouth, pay the bills, keep the car running bla bla .  It wasnt easy but it is definately possible. You just have to accept that if this is what ya gotta do, ya gotta do it. As for choice in job, I chose simply to be a check out chick cause it got me out the house and i got to talk to people other than a babbling 1.5 yr old. I also left work at the door because it was the type of job that had no responsibility’s other than showing up and taking peoples money.

Time managment is critical, as is routine, routine, routine. Things will go wrong and you have to accept its to a means to an end.  You will find though that something will have to give. If you value family time with your babies and still want your friends to no think youve fallen off the face of the earth its usually the housework that suffers.

So if your prepared to accept that your house will be a mess, your washing will rarely be folded, your garden will most likely get a bit shabby and the hubby will be eating one pot wonder meals cooked or slapped together in the shortest time possible do it! If you are a neat freak though, i would say goodbye to your social life.

In saying this you do have hubby to help you so you wont have to do it all on your own like i did.

I’m not in that position right now, but might be in the future. I’m working part-time and studying full-time (thought it’s online). I might TTC next year, and I’ll still be in school. I am currently looking for a full-time job in education.

You could probably do some part-time educational work with a degree in psychology. You should also reapply at the bank. Anywhere you can think of, that won’t give you odd hours. 

One of my professors is teaching college courses, getting her PhD, has a one-year old child, and is planning her second! I don’t know how she does it.

Is possible a lot of work but still possible I am only 22 and I want to be done with having babies this year and finish my carreer in 3 years , my husband helps. A Lot too Daycare here runs around 600$ a month full time since my daughter goes to school is only 300$ a moths until summer cames so it’s worth it for me to work since I still will get around 1200$ -800$ a month

I would try a restaurant. It sucks but you start quickly, take home cash every night, and it’s pretty flexible hours.

@Ninteenthchance:  I didn’t really answer your question lol, sorry! If I didn’t get the job I have (I work 7am – 3pm Wed & Thurs & 7am – 1pm Fri) then I would go back to bartending nights. I may actually go back to that sometime in the near future…
