I am just hoping to connect with other Dads (possibly ones that earn a bit of income from home) and get back to my SAHD lifestyle. I have nearly a month and a half to decide whether to move on from my career and return to the freedom of home (not sure we could swing that financially), go back to school (again) if I could swing that...though it would mean more debt, or find something to do from home that turns a modest income.
I have a 1 and 3 year old that I've been staying at home with the last year. I telecommute via a VPN connection into my old job about 10-15 hours a week. Pretty much squeeze it in while they are napping and at night. It's with a consulting group I've been with for years before I stayed home so that's how I made it work.

It's a juggling act at times, but I think I value the responsibility of professional work and get more from it than I readily admit.

Working from home right off the bat without getting established in the work's normal environment is hard, hope you can find something that allows you to do it. Best of luck.
