Pizza delivery. It may not sound very glamorous but think about how this could work, pack the kids in the car at the beginning of the route, and give them plenty of toys and snacks to keep them occupied while you drive them around and deliver pizzas. Maybe when dad or a guardian is home you can drop the children off while you finish your shift.
