How many SAHMs also take college classes?

I have 4 kids, and have been a stay at home mom for almost 4 years. Once all my kids have started school, I will be looking for work. My youngest is just 18 months, so I have 4 years before that happens. I have been thinking about taking college classes online and getting a degree, so that when I do go work, I can make more than just minimum wage. I'm just scared about how I'm going to do it all. How do other moms do it? I have a hard time keeping up with everything now, especially since we started trying to buy items cheap then sell them on Ebay to help bring in a little money.

If you have found a course that you really like, then go for it! I also have 4 children, my youngest will start full time school in September. I will finish my course this June and if I'm honest it has been really hard work. I am behind on housework and seriously need to do some decorating too! It takes alot of juggling to look after 4 children, do the housework and then coursework.

I'm really lucky because my husband is very supportive and really does a fair share around the house and with the kids, and if im feeling tired and like i want to give up, he reminds me how hard ive worked and pushes me to keep going :)

If you've found a course that your really interested in then you will enjoy doing the work, and if you have support at home, it will make it easier for you to make time to do the work!

Good luck xxx
