    This doesn't work for everyone but it has for my family. Would you be willing to work 3 or so nights or weekends while your hubby is with the kids? If so get a job waitressing or delivering pizzas. Restaurants are used to being flexible and most of the staff is part-time. The money per hour averages out a lot higher than other part-time jobs, you'll get a break from the kids, and you'll make some "fill in the budget" money. Lots of luck!
