My second daughter has just started prep. I have only my 3 year old son home now.And there is no way I am not going to have a plan for when he starts school. I work 1_2 days a week and am starting study so I can jump straight into A JOB tHAT I AM HAPPY WITH BY THE TIME HE STARTS SCHOOL. OF COURSE THE JOB MUST SUIT SCHOOL HOURS. CRAFTS AND HOBBIES ETC CAN BE DONE WHEN KIDS ARE IN BED. WHAT DO DADS GET. THEY WORK FULL TIME AND COME HOME TO A FULL AND NOISY HOUSE. BOTH PARENTS SHOULD BE INVOLVE IN ALL ASPECTS OF KIDS LIVES AND BE PRODUCTIVE. HOW MUCH TIME DO MUMS NEED.

When my kids started school I just went with them and volunteered. I even had a paid job on campus for awhile. But I also got my AA degree and joined some community service groups and spent time with other SAHM's.

I did similar. As the kids get older, there are sports and activities that need parent volunteers.

I had my degree, and I did work part-time, very PT sometimes. I didn't work full time again until the youngest was a senior in high school, and college expenses were mounting.

Maybe one of your hobbies (or something you're really good at) can turn into a money making business...

I met an artist/graphic designer recently who spend a few years staying home with her kid. Now that the kid is growing up, she decided to find other avenues to make money but still keep a flexible schedule. She now does "art parties" it's a similar concept to a candle party (e.g. Mary Kay, Amway, etc). She gets someone to host the event, invites 10-15 friends over. These friends pay a fee ($25) and bring a bottle of wine. In return we all get our own easel, paint brushes, etc. The artist prints out a copy of the art everyone is going to paint (already drawn in pencil in the canvas). You try to follow the picture, or go your own way changing colors, etc. After a few glasses of wine and some painting, the evening will end on a nice note.
