Time is one of our biggest challenges. For instance, Max gets home every Friday at 11:45am! I either leave work (an hourly job) or have to pay someone to be here for him. My wages don’t even cover what I pay a babysitter so it’s a strange situation — stay and work more hours, or go home and save some money? Most of our other challenges are typical except that I still like to be here when he gets off the bus from school because I’m not sure he can get into the locked house by himself. So I have to leave work by 2:15pm to do so.
