My husband and I still trying to start a family. We're not there
yet, so maybe this question is premature, but I'm starting to
seriously look at work pay vs. daycare. My original plan was to be
a stay-at-home artist and mom. Neither are working out right now
(to the level of being a self-sustaining artist), and I picked up a
job while I get my art off the ground.
My question is: How do you balance infants and a home job?
I know you do it, but I don't remember the specifics if you mentioned them. I remember, though, you doing it for awhile and now Kenzie seems to be in daycare, but Inara is now home with you. I didn't know if it was possible to get enough content out while being a full time parent too. It probably helps that you are already established as a musician with a following. :)
This all came about while looking at the price of daycare and seeing that it isn't much under my paycheck. So it seems possible to do better if I could bring in an income from home.
