TLDR: future work from home dad looking to have cake and eat it too, when it comes to working from home

Hi there! So my (M32) wife and I are expecting our third child this coming October. We’re both teachers and she loves it- I however, I do not. She makes a bit more than I do so we figured it will make sense for her to go back to work because of this and the love for her job. I’m planning on staying home with the baby starting either second semester (assuming I teach first semester) or as soon as the baby is born and find some work from home. I was wondering what creative ways you have found to earn meaningful (more than minimum wage) work from home while having a baby. I’m willing to work nights and weekends but not full time-if I wanted a full salary I would put baby in daycare. I do NOT have a permanent teaching license as I’ve been teaching on an emergency/temporary license. I’ve taught ESL online in the past, so I know that’s an option. So, if you have any ideas I’d be glad to hear them, I realize that I’m asking for a lot (more than min wage, WFH, flexible), but I figured I might as well ask to see what people have come up with.

Also, does anyone know of specific skills I can pick up over the next 6 months-1 year that would allow me to earn decent money from home?
