Anyone else a WAHM single parent?

Hi, I run a few different little businesses, one selling baby t-shirts, one selling crafted things and the last one as a web and graphic designer.

Fitting in work between the school run (I have a 10 year old with special needs (this is not a sob story!)) and keeping the house together etc. means I feel like I'm working all the time.

Just wondered if anyone else is in the same boat and if so how do you cope?

I'm not in the same boat as I only have one business but it's still hard. Of course, part of the job is that you can go to sports days etc, but then you have to make the time up at night so it isn't easy. I wonder though <gentle nudge> where you're actually making your money. Might be worth an analysis of how much time you're putting in to each thing and how much £ you're getting out. Crafty/makey businesses are notorious for sucking up masses of time for not much money. Are you putting your efforts in to the right places?
