Job question

If you were in my career position, which of the following two situations would you choose?

SCENARIO 1:
-Working two jobs, for a combined total of roughly 52-60 hours per week
-About $50k combined, but with potential to make more through overtime.
-Both workplaces are local (20 min. drive or less)
-Both jobs are very stable
-I like and am familiar with both jobs


SCENARIO 2:
-Working just one job, for about 35 hours per week
-$54K
-Location is 53km's (33 miles) away, through heavy, stop-and-go rush hour traffic (at least an hour commute)
-14 month contract (albeit, through a municipality where it is common for people to find other contracts and eventually permanent jobs)
-Unfamiliar with the job, no idea if I'll like it.



I'm kinda leaning towards 1, but I'm not sure if that's crazy.

I have a wife and 9 month old kid if that informs the decision at all.
