People ask me how I do it all. My secret is simple.

100x yes!

Our oldest (we have 2 boys) is a sophomore in HS now and one of us has had a PT/work-from-home gig for 12 of those years. We take turns with the “real” job and feel blessed that we have been able to do this.

Kudos to you for challenging the assumption that both partners have to be working FT to live in California and raise a family.
