Before posting anything further, please keep in mind that this forum is open to the public (which includes your ex-husband), is meant for general rather than specific questions, and is not protected by any type of attorney-client privilege.
That being said, in making a ruling on custody, the presiding judge is to determine what arrangement is in the best interest of the children. Under New Hampshire law, the presiding judge is to consider a number of factors (see list at the link below), but none of us can tell you how your job alone will affect a particular judge's decision.
However, I think that you are right to be concerned about how a judge will react if you and your ex- dispute custody and the judge is asked to consider the nature of your work and the fact that you sometimes work from home while your children are there. Accordingly, I would strongly suggest that you try to work with your ex- to come up with an arrangement that both of you can live with -- rather than forcing a judge to step in and decide the matter for you.
Good luck to you.
Any answer or other information posted above is general in nature and is not intended, nor should it be construed, as legal advice.

Good advice above. Instead of providing all of the details on a public forum, consult with an attorney for the best opinion. It may be hard to find the time or funds to do so, but it will be very worthwhile to determine your best way to proceed and what points to raise.
That said, you do have some very positive facts in your corner from your narrative. There is a potentially negative fact in your career, but frankly, if you have the right argument, you can certainly make sure that it not a determinative factor. Again, counsel can help here.
Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your matter further.
