OP: So then, if you're a Ft WAHM, you still need a baby sitter/nanny/au pair before your DC are in school? Does your own flexibility allow you to pay less for childcare, or does it not work that way? (Sorry for all the inane questions!) [ Reply | More ]

Yes, definitely. Or day care. I guess a FT nanny who was working 9 to 5 only would get paid less than one who works longer hours that cover your commute, although you'd have to find someone amenable to that. [ Reply | More ]

Define productively. If you can work for 15-30 min stretches then stop for 15 min-1 hr, probably around 2. That said, you can't do that everyday. I WAH and I couldn't do it at all as I am easily distracted even if my kids were entertaining themselves. i had a FT nanny until DC's were in school. Once they hit 10, I just planned my day so I was generally done by the time they got home. [ Reply | More ]
