WP Tavern has published a great post about balancing family life, and especially kids, with work and improving your professional skills.
It sounds very familiar! 🙂 I have started to be involved in web development when we were expecting our second child, Noah. 4 years and another little girl (Kato) later, we have 3 children and I am freelancing as a web developer next to a full-time job. We have also just bought a house that needs some serious renovating… Let’s say that time management is essential, I try to use every minute of my day productively. I might write a longer post about this period of my life later… when I’ll have the time! 😉
