Not regularly. Since they're in school (or in summer, at camps) I feel like they sometimes need downtime and/or alone-time. I will say that a well-timed playdate is very helpful, however, when the school gives a random student-day-off! I can work from home while the kids entertain themselves!

I have been there, too, although I didn't get a year off before sending my kids to daycare. You were lucky! It's so, so hard to adjust to working again. I can also relate to not even liking your job anymore -- I totally felt that way. Because I had found a BETTER job -- being a MOM! rewarding! fulfilling! Not like my desk job which just felt like drudgery. :( Let me tell you, even though the job market is crummy, it might be worth it to change jobs if you can find something you might like better. I was so lucky that an opportunity came to me when my baby was 1 -- the work is more fulfilling and closer to home/daycare. I still feel like it's work, but it's not AS bad. Think about it. I will be praying for you. It's a very hard time and sometimes you'll cry - it's normal - but you will make it through and your baby will be FINE. (hope the cough gets better) ((((hugs))))
