It can been done. I went back to school when my children were 1 1/2 years old and 6 months old. I chose to take online classes and I was working a part-time job with my hubby in the military. Girl when I say it can be done, believe me it can. You just have to organize your time. It payed off because I have graduated and in graduate school. It depends on how determined you are, and what you are willing to sacrifice to make your goals attainable. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

you could always do online classes. they have really evolved and are actually pretty good now. and a lot of colleges have on site day care. it will be tough but its definitely something you could accomplish if you really want it. or you could always wait until the 9 mo is in school and go during the day.

i am also wanting to go back to school. i ahve 3 children on a single family income. We can't afford childcare and we make just over the amount to get any help from the gov. My children are 3.5 yrs, 2.5 yrs and 5 months and im hopin to go back part time in sept. two evening course a week. i wish i could go to school full time but its not going to happen right now but ill just do the part time for now. im sure if u really want to you will figure out something so you can!

if you are determined, you can do it! I have a 7 month old, and started schol again about a month ago. my main concern was daycare, i did not want her in daycare. i know a woman who has a in-home daycare, so I know it is someone I can trust. Im not going to lie, it is very tough balancing school and being a mom, especially going at it alone right now! (husband is deployed so it's just me and baby.) But, you will find a way to get your school work done, i get a lot done on breaks at school, and when she is napping, or sometimes playing on the floor. And of course once she is in bed, my books come out and it's all I do! I pretty much sad goodbye to my social life for the time being, but you CAN make it work if you want to!
