Going back to work? Night shift
I have a question for anyone who would like to share! I have been looking for a part time job. Today I had an interview and I would love the job working in a residential care home but the problem is the hours are 11pm -7am. My children are ages 17, 14, 10 and 2. my dh leaves for work around 6 am and I am not worried at all about the older kids getting themselves up in the morning. my 2 yr old sleeps through the night and doesn't usually get up in the morning until about 8:30 or 9. Even if he did I am sure that 17 yr old could handle him for an hour or so. I would be home before any of the kids get on the bus in the am but I don't know that I could get used to being awake all night and then waiting until dh gets home at 3:30 to sleep with a 2 yr old.
Has anyone else worked this shift with young kids and if so how did you get used to it or how did you manage? I am not sure I will take it but trying to work out the details. I have family in the area but the ones who don't work aren't willing to help me out a few days a week.
Just thought I would ask what worked for others and see if I could get any suggestions.
