Ask HN: Did your life as a parent affected your life as a developer? | Hacker News
I have a full time job as full stack developer, wife and 2 kids. I commute every day 1 hour in each direction. On a work day I woke up at 5:30 am, wash, dress and jump in a car at 6:00 am, so that I can be at work at 7:00 am. I usually go home at 3:00 pm and if there is no traffic jam I am at home at 4:00 pm. I eat something, change clothes, clock says 5 pm and I try to spend some quality time with my wife and kids. Kids go to bed at 8 pm and at 9 pm I am exhausted as hell, and I fell to bed. And this repeats every work week.

On weekends I barely have time for my side projects (one is, which I created over several weekends when wife and kids were sleeping), because there is always something to do around the house. What I'm trying to say: where do you take time for your side projects or studying new technologies?
