Take Three Kids To Work With Me? That's just not as cool as acronym as SAHM or WOHM. So which forums do I fit in now? I still go to the SAHM one because my kids are with me but I don't totally fit there and I haven't checked out WOHM yet. I'm the manager of the gym babysitting area now at the Y.

I work at the YMCA, so it's an ok environment for them, but what I'm wondering is:

1) How do I balance my kids' needs with getting work done when they're at work with me?

2) How do I pull off looking "professional" in an environment where I'm the only manager bringing children?

3) How do I still pull off homeschooling my oldest?

I am wondering all these things as well. I work as an after school program assistant. I plan on returning to work next week and I am worried about meeting my son's needs while meeting the other children's needs as well.
