Hey everyone! I'm a very hard working Mommy! I have two awsome kids 4 and 5 and I go to school part time as well as work full time. It can get very hectic at times! How about you?

It can be crazy. I only have one child. I teach kindergarten all day and then take classes two nights a week and work a night job one night a week. I used to really worry about the condition of the house, but now focus on just spending time with my daughter and we get done what we can get done and play and have fun the rest of the time.

I am in the same boat as you. It can get hectic, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Just focus on the have tos and that you can not do it all. Your children will respect you more for earning your degree and sticking to your goals. The house will look nice when we can afford a housekeeper. Hah!

I've been there - went back to school as a single mom of 2. Worked full time and school full time for two years. Then married DH, got pregnant with baby #3 and quit work for a while but continued school. Went back to work part time during senior year and full time after graduation. DH works out of town over half the year, so most of the time I'm a single parent, in effect.

Those college years were HARD, but I don't regret it for a minute. Going back to school was a great decision for me. How much longer do you have? Hope it is a wonderful experience for you and know it will all be worth it :>)
