My daughter is 11 months old and I've been staying at home with her. I'm also thinking of homeschooling or unschooling, but dh and I haven't come to a firm decision yet. The problem is, I'd eventually like to finish my bachelor's degree (111 credits down, about 41 or so to go due to transferring). Can you do both? DH was talking about how it would be very hard for me to finish school when we're thinking of having 3 or 4 children and homeschooling them. Can it be done? DH is in vet school now and will be starting in the clinics this winter, so I won't be able to rely on him to watch dd while I go to class. That lasts until he's done in spring 2008. I don't know if I should look for a sitter or check out the montessori because I didn't really want to have her in any day care, but even if I only took 1 online class, I'd still need someone to watch her while I go in for the 3 or 4 exams that I'd have throughout the semester. And online classes are only an option for 2 of the classes I need. I don't want to make any decisions for dd that I'll regret later and I don't think I would ever regret being at home with her, but at the same time, I'd like to finish my degree eventually.
: Any suggestions?
