Get used to getting some gaming hours in at night, like after 12:00 a.m. ish. Having some gaming headphones, like a pair of turtle beaches or something helps a lot to keep from waking kids up. (Yet at the same time don't have your **** blasting if kids sleep in a different room...don't want to be drowned out in game noise while someone could be dieing in the background or something, lol).
If you work from like 6 a.m. to 4 or 5 p.m./something like that, then you will have to just try to get in a hour or two in the afternoon while at the same time watching your kids/game while they sleep (I found that a good way to keep young kids occupied is to give them a old DS to play on...like you could give my nephew a DS with mario or something like angry birds and he will sit still and play it for hours, lol. Make sure you buy a screen protector and one of those shell/armor things for the DS so it never breaks no matter how much they try to bend the DS/drop it). It sounds hard but is doable.

How do you manage it? Have you almost given up gaming completely? Do you drink alcohol at all anymore? Really interested to hear from you, I have a two year old and haven't been able to really game since she was born, even though I own multiple consoles....
I have an 8-year old and a 6-month old...
The only time I can game is usually between the hours of 11pm and 2am, when my wife and kids are all sleeping.
For me, it comes down to a decision between resting (sleep) or gaming. I'd say it's split 50/50 now....but I usually only get in about 4-6 hours of gaming a week.

Ha ha I have a two year old girl as well... I have a full time job, work out an hour and forty five minutes, then the rest is family time.... If I want to get my gaming in... I stay up til everyone is asleep.... It's a daily conflict... Sleep VS Gaming..... Gaming usually wins... But I'm fine with an hour or two gaming then hitting the sack at midnight
My son is 3 and loves the wii and ds, especially anything with mario. He even enjoys watching let's play on youtube. I guess the best advice is try to get kids to enjoy hobbies you like so they will want to play.
