Boy was I thrilled to read some of these comments! I've been working from home for 7 years, and I have a 3.5 year old. I work on a project to project basis so sometimes I am a stay-at -home mom but when I am working he has childcare. Because I'm working. People that think you can properly care for a small child and be an efficient and responsible worker are kidding themselves. Even with a part time work schedule and full time preschool (nowadays - he had a nanny until he was 3) I end up working after dinner almost ever night when I have a project. This is a toss up for being able to pick him up at school at 3 sometimes but I wouldn't change it for anything. If you are lucky enough to work at home and see your child for lunch, throw in some laundry between conference calls and even prep dinner during a slow afternoon that's amazing. If you think working at home means you can take care of an infant you are seriously in for a wake up call. "Don't plan on working all day" pretty much sums it up!
