Hey Amanda, I work 3 days a week...Tues, Thurs and Fri. And after Thurs and Fri I would love a day to catch up too! My house is generally a mess and the kids are haywire after being gone during for 2 days in a row. I feel your pain . I know it's different for each family, and my experience I'm sure is much different than yours. I can tell you on our end (and this is going on 5 years of me working part-time) that we have family (thankfully, we live near a lot of our family) that watch the kids when I work. I take the kids into town to their grandparents, pick them up (DH works the opposite way from my work). I used to work a different position on Saturdays but it was too stressful for me...when I'd call home I'd hear the stress in everyone's voice, and I'd be tired when I got home and the house would be dirty, it just wasn't worth the shift differential. Maybe someday, but honestly I haven't missed it at all. I hope that everything works out for you.
