This varies depending on the day. If my daughter is with her father, then I’ll get in a lot more study time. On Saturdays, I use to take her to a preschool that would watch her from 8am-6pm for $35. This school is awesome, they accept kids up to the age of 13 providing 3 meals plus 2 snacks. That school was amazing for me and I’ve had to use them a lot. She didn’t want to go, but I had to do what I had to do. On those days she was extra fussy about it, I would bribe her. (LOL) Promising to do something she wanted to do to make up for the lost time.
