I'm very lucky in my current situation. I'm a software developer, and I can work from home as needed. Or duck out early, or come in late as well.
I typically work 5 days a week, 8-5 in the office (about 15-20 minute drive). But with a 4 month old, sometimes things come up, and I have to be able to work from home. Like tomorrow, my parents who normally make a 30 minute drive to babysit 2-3 days a week are probably going to be running late due to snow. Going to work from my couch for a couple hours until they get in, and then head to the office for the rest of the day.
The trade off is that I occasionally have to work after hours. My company has first and second shifts, plus some over seas operations. Plus, on weekends like this one, I had to spend an hour or 2 publishing our latest software release and making a few fixes. So easily putting in more than 40 hours on a normal week, and 50+ on weeks where there's more work to be done.
That's a trade off I'll take though to be able to work from home and work shorter hours during the week when it's needed. I'm just hoping I survive some of the outsourcing that's been happening...

15-16 hours Mon-Thurs, 12 on Friday, another 12 over the course of the weekend (mostly Saturday). My roughly 1.5 hour roundtrip commute is included in the Mon-Fri figures, since I use that time to catch up on work-related podcasts.
