So my daughter will be starting school this fall, and I was thinking about getting a part time job while she is in school. Does anyone think this is a good/bad idea?

I think that's up to you, i have mix feelings about it cause i'm thinking of getting one too or go to college but sometimes i don't want to be away from my kids; i guess we should put priorities and do whats best for everyone including us.

Noone can tell you if it is a good or bad idea, only you can. If you do think you want one, just remember that you have to plan for breaks (like summer break or spring break) there's usually late arrivals or early dismissals, or if you are like me and live where it snows, there are always snow days too. Just make sure you get a job that is fexible to handle all these or a baby sitter lined up. For me, I have 4 kids, and would love to have a part time job. I thought a cooks' assistant at the school would be awesome, because I would be off when the kids are. My problem was that the school did have an opening for 2hrs a day, but I didn't find out about it til it was too late. : (
