Im a mother of two young daughters. a 9 month old and a 2 1/2 year old. Its hard, but i carve out the time to raid. It works well that their bedtime is 7:45 which is about when diego ends and i can log in and get ready before raid start time at 8. My biggest problem as a Mommy raider, is finding the time to farm for matts for my flasks. I made sure to join a guild that provides free enchants and fish feasts. I was also very up front when apping to my guild that kids come first, and if they needed me, I would have to go. Usually my guild has a few ppl on "standby" to fill in if needed. Basically, i wanted to raid and found a way to do it. My husband no long plays wow but is usually at class on raid nights so its usually all me. I have to make sure i have everyone fed, bathed and in pjs and we usually read a story or two before 7:30, then my best friend Diego comes on. I try and do my dishes between 7:30 and 7:45 while my 9 month old has a bottle and falls asleep and my two year old calms down in front of hte tv. I also balance work 2 nights a week and at least 1 night a week on the couch with my hubby. Sometimes raiding does start to feel like a chore, its starting to right now, especially with the holidays creeping up trying to suck the life out of me, but im going to try and push through it, offer to be that standby person when i can, and I know that when Icecrown comes I will be ready to hopefully be one of the realm firsts on my server to clear it.
